Netflix...

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

Help me please!

So I am thinking on buying netflix for 8.99 a month for 3 months just so I can use it for the internet streaming. From what I understand, i get 2 dvd's out at a time, I can watch UNLIMITED movies and shows via internet streaming, all for 8.99. So my questions. 1: Can I literally go watch up to maybe 150 movies a month with that plan? 2: It claims I have to have some netflix box, do i have to get one of those? 3: Can you please answer these for me lol :D I want to buy in a few minutes so I'm in a hurry. Thanks!!

    It takes 1 business day to arrive and then one to get back then one more to give you the next on your list, if I recall. So no its impossible to watch 150 DVDs per month. But their instantly watch online thing is fucking fantastic and they just added HD section and it looks great and there is no buffering while streaming. I only use my friends account and log in using his stuff on their ite to watch things online on my computer when I'm too lazy to wait for something to download and the subscription is worth it for that alone.

    Yes, you can watch as much as you want each month online. If you want to stream to your TV, then you need a netflix box, wii, XBox 360, or PS3. I had netflix at one point in time and it was worth every penny.

    To watch streaming videos on your tv, yeah. UNless you have a 360,ps3 or a wii. But you can just watch the streaming stuff on your computer without a box or any of that, and of course if you get dvds sent to you, you just need a dvd player.

    There's cheaper plans too. IIRC there's one starting at 5 dollars but IDK what that includes. I just cancelled mine cause it was 10 bucks a month (including the 2 dollar blu-ray fee) and I wasn't watching nearly enough movies. Ever since I got my DVR, my netflix acct has been useless.

    Hey guys, well, I noticed that I can't watch EVERY movie -_- there's play, add, and save, and I can only play like 1/10 movies -_- fucking fail.

    Yeah, not every single movie is an instant watch. There's sections for streaming and sections for having a dvd sent to your house.
