Netflix Streaming Thread 2.0

This is correct. I am grandfathered in for the $7.99 per month.

 

Also just cancelled Netflix. "Here's looking at you, kid."

Thanks for the answers guys. I would have preferred going month to month since there are probably months I won't use it at all, but I guess it's cheap enough where I'd still get my money's worth paying for the whole year.

Another reason to dump Netflix: HBO is bringing a ton of it's shows to Amazon Prime.

 

Amazon just announced an agreement that makes Prime Instant Video the only place you can watch HBO originals online without an HBO subscription. Starting May 21st, Prime members will get exclusive, unlimited streaming access to pretty much every HBO original you're interested in except Game of Thrones.

The price hike is for new customers. For current customers the price will stay at eight bucks "for some time."

Yeah, I found that out today. The initial story I read hadn't mentioned that. Still, I feel like the quality of their streaming library has really dropped over the last year or so.

There's always stuff to find to watch on Netflix.

Wow - that might seal the deal for me on cable TV.

I agree. Had a free month and used it once, it's pretty bad. They just want you to load the app and see all the good stuff you have to pay for. But all I see Netflix doing is taking (good) stuff down and adding nothing of value.

I was never very impressed with the content Amazon had to offer, either.

Does Amazon Prime at least add newer episodes faster after it originally airs? Bates Motel, Hannibal, etc

Yes, BUT, do not watch with your SO. It will feel uncomfortable and raise quite a few questions between you two! lol

Does Netflix have any Travel Channel/Food Network content?

 

Amazon just switched it all to pay a while ago.

I have Amazon Prime and was stoked they offered streaming but their service is garbage. I can stream anything Netflix has no issues but Prime always lags and constantly buffers so I never use them. Shame too as they do have different things than Netflix like when the last time I tried giving them a chance they had Goodfellas on there (Netflix didn't).

I've also never had problems with Amazon streaming on either the Prime content or things I've bought.

What app are you using? I had problems at times in the past on the 360 app, but never on my PS3, Roku or Bluray player apps.

I had one streaming issue with Amazon Instant Video on XB1, but it played just fine on PS4 -- also haven't had any issues since. Wish they (Amazon) would get their heads (and Kindles) out of their asses so I could watch this stuff on my HTC One. That's really my only complaint about the service.

I never understood why but whenever I tried to stream Netflix on my 360 it would never go over 480SD quality regardless of the content.

It was actually the PS3. I haven't tried using it since, I might fire it up sometime on my days off see if anything has improved.

 

Also, I just got off of the FF Wikia and it was saying Advent Children was just added onto Netflix so anyone that wants to see it who doesn't own it already there you go.

After about a year without Netflix, I decided to renew my membership. Surprised to see they added Undercover Boss, Regular Show, and Archer. I'm definitely going to have fun catching up on all of these shows (I'll eventually get to Arrow).

 

I wanted to try out Netflix on my tablet. Works flawlessly compared to the app on Xbox 360 and PS3 where it lags every 5- 10 minutes and seconds into whatever I begin watching. I'm in the middle of moving so if I need to stay somewhere else in the meantime, this will come in handy.

Netflix raising their price by $1 for new customers. Existing customers won't see the price increase for two years.

Agreed. Heck, I'd pay $9.99.month for Netflix, maybe more. I actually wouldn't mind them copying Hulu and giving us branded "channels". Would make finding something to watch a bit easier if I could go to a channel that has a number of my shows.

Exactly. And it's only for new subscribers, existing hold price for two years. Gas will be a buck higher in two years.
