Didnt they already get sued for that?


Yes, and they paid a settlement and altered the user agreement to notify that they do it which protects them from future suits.

They don't seem to do it nearly as much though, based on how much lessend complaining about it has gotten on movie forums.

So it's more likely he's having a postal issue. I had problems when I moved the last time with things not showing up or getting returned. Left a note for the mailman after a few had gotten returned to Netflix as undeliverable and haven't had any issues since. Think that may have been a change of address problem.

They'll slow down shipping movies out to people who watch too many a week/month.

How many movies are you going through a week/month and what's your plan? I have 1 disc at a time and I'll do 1 or 2 movies a week, but often also keep one movie for 2 or 3 weeks if I guess busy, go out of town etc. So I've never hard throttling issues.

If you're not going through movies very fast, it could be some problem with your mailman or something else along the way.

The only issue I have now is a lot of new release blu rays sit on Very Long Wait for 2 or 3 weeks after release and get skipped over for other things in my queue. But I can live with that as I don't mind waiting (if I wanted to see it that bad, I would have caught it at the theater).


I have the 1 disc plan. I average 2 discs per week (when things flow right). Streaming, I am not heavy streaming..but I am starting to get into BSG...even yesterday the connection crapped out saying my internet connection was too slow..(WTF Verizon!)

I am really starting to suspect our mail man/Post Office. I've notice that some of my bill payments sent by check either get there days later then expected OR never arrive. Just the other day my gf got her W2 form in the mail and it was a clear sign someone tried to open it and retaped it...we were like WTF?!?!!? Heck even a package that was suppose to take 2 days from FL from my friend took 6 days to get here!

Well I am only on episode 7 of the first season. I refused to watch the series until the pilot episodes were on netflix. I am SO GLAD they are showing it in HD.

It's a good show.... can't say it's the best show until I reach the end of the series. Just giving it a chance. So far it's pretty good.

I started a 1 month trial to watch a show that ended up not being on instant watch, but let me tell you, this is pretty neat. I finally got a chance to watch Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Thanks for the Prince of Persia update. Wanted to check it out but didn't want to pay at redbox for it.

When does Grown Ups appear? Another I wanted to rent but didn't want to redbox.

Edit: Nevermind. I clicked on it and saw march 1st.

Second the warm fuzzies. Might have to stream some favorite episodes, especially in light of this announcement of BSG: Blood & Chrome. A 2 hour pilot? Fingers crossed that it turns out well and that they bring it to streaming with due haste. Godspeed, gentlemen.

Anyone know if/when Merlin (BBC) will add other seasons to instant? Only the first one is up so far.

MWC is Married With Children, schuerm.

I haven't been using Netflix so much, lately, but thanks again for doing all this, Scorch.

As for the throttling issues, I haven't had any problems. As I said, I haven't used instant watch much lately, but I usually get 2 discs per week. I receive one on Wednesday, mail it back Thursday, get another on Saturday, mail it back Monday, and repeat.

I've heard that! I still feel like I need to at least see it through to the end.

I'd also like to see Smallville on NetflixInstant. Another show I only saw the first 5 seasons of....this is all because of my days working at hwv and free rentals.

Same here. I'd would love to catch up on Smallville, but only in HD..I know HDnet is playing it , but I don't have time to watch it in the morning.

TNG/DS9/VOY/ENT needs to be on Netflix.

Season 8 was okay. The first few episodes of season 9 were okay. You'd do best to stop watching at the end of season 8. The last two episodes (My Finale, part 1 and 2) were just.. perfect.

That's the one about Banksy, right? I've heard nothing but good things.. I've even heard the phrase "best movie of the year" thrown around a few times.
