I like the ease of streaming a movie. Unfortunately, a lot of the movies we want to see are not available. I am not necessarily referring to newly released movies, but classics that I want to watch with my kids. For example, I wanted to watch Dumb and Dumber with my kids this past weekend - Not available. This type of scenario has happened a lot so I end up doing "on demand" with my cable provider for an additional cost.
I absolutely love Netflix. We watch many shows on this program and they are amazing shows.The only reason I gave it less then 5 stars is that I have a hard time on my reader getting the program. I can be in the middle of a show and Netflix will stop working and tell me to try again later. This has nothing to do with service on my end, but a Netflix problem. I really enjoy being able to watch these shows on my reader and that is actually why we purchased Netflix. It is frustrating that it is not as reliable as it should be for portable viewing.
Netflix is so convenient that it has put Blockbuster out of business. But it didn't take long to find that the choices available were limited and that new releases were hardly ever added. I find it frustrating and time consuming to weed through all the same "stuff" to find something that I may have overlooked for a movie choice. I sure hope they will renew their movie selections more often.
