    Do you have to sign up for a full netflix account or can you just get the streaming portion? I have no interest in getting physical DVDs in the mail from them, but I'd totally sign up for a reduced rate for streaming.

    yeah $8 is for unlimited streaming and one useless DVD. They need to put everything up for streaming and just get rid of the dvd...I would still pay the $8.

    Yea we get the 2 discs at a time... but barely watch 2 discs a month. With streaming to my Blu-Ray player... we watch most of our stuff there. I may downgrade mine to the 1 at a time deal with streaming.

    I do agree though... if they would put their entire catalog up for streaming... I'd pay what I pay now and just completely forgo the discs.

    They have a good amount of streaming content... especially with the Starz Play streaming. I still wish more mainstream recent stuff was available. Actually... I just wish they would eventually get to 100% of their stuff stream-able (like you know it will get to eventually). I'd happily pay what I pay now and never touch a dvd again if they would just stream all of their stuff. With it available on my iPad as well as through my Blu-Ray player... I'd never need another disc.

    I guess that is the catch though... if they start streaming EVERYTHING... then what is the incentive to go out and buy a blu-ray disc anymore?

    I think that's the point....there shouldn't be Blu-Ray or DVD or CD....media consumption should all be streaming or downloadable. I personally see no need for a piece of fragile plastic to watch movies or listen to music. So outdated!

    Oh I agree... but production companies aren't gonna let Netflix start doing that until they work out a way to get as much revenue (if not more) than they can through the sale of dvds and blu-ray discs. I don't think they believe they'll make as much through a standard monthly fee as they can through a direct pay-per-view system. So that either means higher prices through Netflix or they will continue to limit new releases and such.

    It sucks... we are THIS close to having it done right... but production companies aren't gonna do it until they know that their sales won't decrease because of the new model. While we are so close... there is still LOTS of work that needs to be done before movie companies will fully jump on board. They don't have a problem with a model like iTunes... because they know for every movie downloaded (regardless of whether it is watched or not) they are getting a certain percentage from that download. No way to (currently) do that with Netflix unfortunately.

    I fix the discs when they come in dirty/scratched. First I wash them with liquid soap and water and dry them with straight swipes. Often that is all you need to do.

    If that fails a little Vaseline or similar fills the scratches and the disc works. Then after playing it we send it back to NetFlix and let someone else worry about it.

    You mean that weird buffer? Optical media is so outdated. I'm really looking forward to PS4 since it should have either all downloadable games or better yet live streaming games.
