    Red face Talk to me about Netflix

    Is it worth $7.99/month? I'm wondering if it's worth it because I would be cancelling my movie channels (with Bell Expressvu)

    Anyone use it? What do you think? Looking through, it seems like a lot of popular titles aren't available (they are in the US). I like the TV series they have. Then again, the US Netflix has much more I'd enjoy.

    You can do a free 1 month trial. DH set it up here and has been watching lots of movies (he loves movies). He says that most of the movies are a little older, many are straight to DVD but they seem to be adding new ones daily. He mentioned the other day that he is probably not going to continue to subscribe right now but may think about it in the future.

    There are also entire seasons of some TV shows on there, not just movies.

    For us the movies stream well, no pauses/interruptions.

    I would like to know too. It sounds good but DH says that it also eats up your internet usage. I am not sure about any of it so I can't say but with the monthly fee + internet usage would it not just to cheaper to rent it?

    ETA: It is JUST streaming right?

    It is streaming yes. It does eat up your usage if you don't have a laarge usage plan then you're gonna pay extra usage if you watch a lot.

    I did sign up for the free month. I'm disappointed in the movie selection, but there are some great ones...older. I'm pleased with the TV series though. I watched almost the entire first season of Paranormal State lastnight lol I love that show

    Unless by the end of the trial they start adding better movies though, I don't think I'd pay for it. We'll see as they do seem to add content frequently.

    We have a free trial right now. We arent going to get it. Not impressed with the selction. We have a 256 GB usage on our internet and we use 5-10/month with regular internet usage. apparently 1 hr of movie streeming is approx 1GB. So we could get about 7 movies/month and not go over. I dont think there are 7 movies ON THERE that I want to watch though.

    We thought about it too - but then thought about the usage as well.
