    Anyone have it? Someone got me a subscription for Xmas and just got a chance to use it today. Its pretty sweet. Runs right through my PS3. Not the newest releases, but tons of movies and tv shows too. It could have used some old movies and porn, but hey, for $8 a month you can't complain and its definitely cheaper than the premium channel package I have on FIOS.

    I just picked up a Blu ray player because my PS3 keeps taking a shit on me, and it has Netflix, Pandora, Youtube, Hulu, and regular media streaming all built in. $139.00. I'm quite pleased to say the least.

    Which blu ray player is it, Elias? I like this netflix so much, I'm thinking of getting something for my BR to view it on, but really don't need another PS3.

    Sony BDP-S370

    It's pretty nice. No internal memory, but it has a rear USB that I popped a $7 4gig usb stick in for any advanced Blu ray features that require storage. It also has a front usb port so even if you didn't stream downloaded movies from a home computer, you could stick them on a thumb drive and watch from their.

    Love Netflix! Been a subscriber for years and use it all the time. I have the 2 disc and unlimited online view plan.
    I use it on my TVs, iphone, ipad, xbox360, wii, and soon on the ps3. :D

    The "instant viewing" is great, I just wish they had a lot more of their available catalog on "instant viewing"... rather than waiting for the envelope/DVD in the mail... my daughter and I were watching "Felix The Cat"... which I liked when I was one or two years old...

    I love it, have the three movie at a time deal. Use it all the time, through the xbox and on my ipad. Blockbuster was told this was the future back in the 90s and they scoffed at it. Fools.

    What do you mean? You can't stream it on the iPhone. Do you know something I don't?

    streaming netflix is awesome, just so long as you aren't looking for anything too current (in that instance, hit the torrents or amazon on demand)

    i just signed up for HuluPlus -- it's not really worth the money (if you're streaming to a TV, the choices are severely limited right now), but I have high hopes it will develop quickly like netflix did
