    Netflix: Good or Bad?

    Is it worth the money? What are the different plans?

    Thanks.

    I had it for almost a year and I quit it. Its only worth it if you send the movies back every week. With My schedule I was keeping them 2 and 3 weeks at a time and it just wasn't worth it anymore for me.
    So yes if you are a big movie watcher and you religiously send them back every week then yes its worth it.
    If your a procrastinator like me then No its not

    I used them for about a year... 2 years ago. They were very good.

    Netflix feeds off of peoples laziness to go to the video store. Those people usually end up being too lazy to drop the movies back in the mailbox.

    I need to cancel netflix, but I'm lazy.

    Works great for me, though im thinking of switching to Blockbuster online so i can swap in the stores too. Sometimes on the weekend we want to watch a movie and i don't always time it right to have movies in from netflix.

    ONline content is getting better and better, the quality is pretty good too.

    Give it a try, its not expensive.

    What's not to like? We watch 2 or 3 discs/week and stream a couple of hours a week for $18 month.

    Compared to satellite or cable, it's a bargain.

    Good if you can sit down and watch the movies when they arrive and not let them sit for a week or two.

    I have the one movie, unlimited per month and it's the best for me.

    Also, I've made a point that if I don't watch a movie within 3 days, I return it since I probably won't make the time for it.

    I'm a fan.

    It's rare when the wife and I go out to a movie. We watch a couple of movies a week.

    No lines. Popcorn is a lot cheaper and we can pause it anytime we like.

    Also nobody sitting next to you with a watch that beeps or snoring. (most of the time)

    I wasn't snoring. I had a nasal problem and your wife knew it.



    (cuts hole in bottom of popcorn bucket and inserts 2" fizzle stick)



    Popcorn anyone?
