    Go on iTunes Shiv. I have Apple TV, and recently signed on to Netflix, but you really need both.

    If it's a popular show or move they don't have it.

    You can rent the sopranos on dvd or if you only have streaming you could try a show called Lilyhamer. It is made by netflix and you can stream it. Has Steven Van Zandt doing a character about the same as his Soprano character, going into witness protection. Tells them to send him to Lilyhamer.........Hilarity ensues. Seriously though, not a bad show. 8 episodes out so far.

    for the $8 a month, it's worth it to me for the tv series alone. it's like "pot luck" dinner - keep your expectations low and you'll be pleasantly surprised. :D

    Hmm, I have comcast, not sure about others but with comcast you can watch all the HBO, Showtime, etc shows on your computer or ipad, soon coming to xbox. They have every episode of every sopranos, deadwood, curb etc. All series, all episodes on demand 24/7.

    You might be able to still get the sopranos (all episodes) with http://www.hbogo.com/ You need to be subscribed to HBO. Not only that but all the movies are on demand 24/7. Better than the TV's ondemand which is limited to only about a third of the shows or less.

    Shiv, Go out and get a WD HD media player, Get a huge external drive for movies that you have or may download later. With the WD HD media player you can connect to Netflix streaming and watch on your tv. I have 3 of them. Best money I have ever spent.

    Had netflix for a year or so... Yea, they constantly have new stuff, but most of it kinda sucks... The same 30 doc's were always there... The TV shows was the only thing that kept me, but there isn't much worth watching on tv anymore, OR that ( in my case FIOS ) doesn't have on demand. Also, i used to watch lots of stand up. Too bad most of the videos were Gabriel Inglesis or Katt Williams ... Gag me...

    We dropped it once the apple tv died and was out of warranty.
