it has Kevin Spacey, anything he is in is usually worth a punt.

I signed up for a months free trial to watch House of Cards, it is excelent.  Stuck around for a month or two but then canceled it.  A buddy of mine has US Netflix on his PS3, I believe its as simple as diddling your DNS adress.  US Netflix is far better.

 

I created a VPN account with hide my ass, and now access content from both! Wink

RE: Netflix

I had similar thoughts about the lack of content on Netflix, very poor and Lovefilm too.

The question is, where do people stream the latest movie releases from. Now Blockbusters has gone belly up I'm struggling to find a decent streaming service to replace it, I have an apple TV but the content is too expensive so what else is there.

Agreed - got Apple TV (rip off) and subscribe to Netflix (which is crap other than Breaking Bad).

No wonder piracy is rife.

ps Anyone know where Daveh75 is ? I want him to answer my post in this section !

RE: Netflix

My pal in New York is endlessly recommending films he's seen on Netflix, which we can't get here. To be fair, he can't get Lovefilm, which serves him right as he keeps making jokes about it sounding like a porn channel.

RE: Netflix

Not only is the content poor so is the quality.I too signed up wiyh netflix when blockbuster went under(mainly because it's on my bd player),they have films in HD  and Super HD,what a mess it looks on  a 50 inch TV . I would pay blu-ray rental prices for blu-ray quality but don't expect any other site to be any different.

RE: Netflix

What are your b/band speeds like? Netflix is adaptive.

Whilst, its never gonna match BD on , quality, it is usually pretty good on a decent b/band connection.

RE: Netflix

It's up to 20m according to Virgin and i just measured it with one of those on line testers and it said 18.35 so nothing wrong there.Is there no other specifications for HD other than 720 or 1080 lines.

RE: Netflix

Amazon Prime (including streaming service and free one-day delivery) currently on offer for £49/year.

 

Does anyone know what they offer in their streaming service, and will it be compatible with Chromecast which is due to launch in the next few weeks?

RE: Netflix

EDIT: it's LoveFilm instant rebranded.  Good price, same mediocre content.

RE: I've resigned myself to the

I've resigned myself to the fact that in the UK at least, NetFlix and the like are forever going to be condemned to stream pound-isle content until there's a major shift in the way media is shared and distributed globally. And while the common scenario remains where the US can buy big blockbuster releases on DVD and BD which sometimes haven't even hit the cinemas here yet, let alone Sky and the rental shops, illegal downloading will continue to run rife. It's a product of their own making.

RE: I've resigned myself to the

When streaming from the likes of lovefilm and Netflix is the audio Dolby Digital? I was under the impression it's not so I don't see much point streaming content that doesn't get the most out of a film, I'd rather rent the blu ray disk?
