If you're the movie nut that I am, you've probably endured that scenario a million times where you'd be waiting in anticipation to see some movie you missed in the theaters but really wanted to see, made the walk over to Blockbuster Video (possibly in two and a half feet of snow because it's winter and you live in Buffalo) in anticipation of renting it, and not finding it there. In 1997, a guy named Reed Hastings had that happen once too often and decided to do something about it. He came up with …

Netflix has been around forever, but I was never interested in getting a subscription.  I felt like a luddite or a cavewoman, having to go to the video stores to rent.  But serioulsy, it was just sooooo unappealing to me that I have to PLAN what to watch days ahead.  There are so many things in life that I have to PLAN ahead.  Why should I plan my video rental?  This is one of very few things left that I can do spontaneously.  So I have been going to local video stores.  …

   I've used Netflix for almost a year now and for the most part I'm rather impressed. Very extensive selection to choose from, especially for the unusual rental types such as animae, and foreign films. Also the movies come in a very timely manner. The only thing I could want improved was their customer service, and their PS3 streaming. But hey you get what you pay for and for the most part Netflix doesn't disappoint at $9.99 a month.

Netflix has an amazing variety of films, you can get things from them that are extremely hard to locate.

I got started with Netflix not too long ago, enticed by Watch Instantly.  Everything was going well, but recently I had some weird experience.      I was waiting for a new DVD from my queue, but after over week of returning my last DVD nothing came through in our mail.  I finally went to the site and tried to see what was going on.  It showed that they received the last DVD a week ago, but it showed nothing has been mailed out.      I didn't …

What can I say? I used to go to Blockbuster and stay in line to get my movies--there are days that I didn't even come home with the new release I droved 5 miles for to bring home. Back in 2001 or 2002, I was introduced to "Netflix" by a co-worker and I was instantly hooked.    the Pros:  -no lines, no late fees, watch the movie whenever you want  -Millions upon millions of movie selection, they have a wide range of foreign films  -hundreds of warehouses …

I never thought I'd subscribe to Netflix.  I was late to use Redbox too.  For the longest time I wondered about those big red machines in my local stores.  Once I started using Redbox I loved it, except for needing to return the disks.  I ended up paying way more than a dollar a movie because I was lazy.  So I looked into Netflix.        I've been using Netflix for several months now and I don't have any complaints.  I've never had a bad disk …
