I think we may cancel and stream through Amazon.
I feel you. The selection isn't really a large one, but when I was getting the movies through the mail, the selection was bigger, but still not as big as I thought is was going to be. I didn't know you can stream through Amazon. How would I hook that up to my tv, though?

Best guess is that if you have a video card with an hdmi out or any kind of a dvi out port you can hook up your pc to hour television and it would then act as a monitor. I have one of my desktops acting in that capacity now.

Yep. Ditto. At first (when I first joined), I loved Netflix, but I eventually ran out of things to watch. I dunno, it just seemed like I watched most if not all of my interests, and then the choices really got slim. I still like Netflix, because of the convenience, it's just that I wish they had a much bigger selection.

We watched Letters to Zachary last night. Talk about intense. Darn you, Canada, and your lame extradition laws.

What's nice about this thread vs. GreekChat.com "current" movie reviews, is we can see posts about movies on here that might interest us, and then go directly online to watch it.

I'm getting ready to watch a movie called "Seven Days to Live". I hope it's good.

Sucked. It was another one of those foreign movies. I hate foreign movies.

"The Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall" (2011)
- We loved it, but then we have every version we have ever seen. Lots of HD/DVD extras.

at a RedBox kiosk near you.

Hmmm...I didn't know Sony had an Amazon app, probably because we tend to go straight to Netflix and Crackle when we use it. I will have to check mine when I get home.

It may vary by model, but ours will stream Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, YouTube . . . .

I'm almost regretting asking for a Roku player because I almost never use it. The Netflix pickin's are slim as far as choices I like on instant stream. But I've been getting into some TV series (Luther is up next) and I found some gospel plays I'd like to see. I think I'll keep it after all but I'm decreasing my plan--I don't use it enough to warrant 2 CDs at a time.

We love out Sony Blu Ray Player and all the things it can do, even the ones it can do for free like YouTube. Set up a you tube account, create play lists, and then pick from your play list using the remote. The search function using the remote is difficult at best though. If you have to search or want to stream from a web site, best to have a computer connected to your amplifier and route it to your HDTV that way.
