RE: Netflix

Hi Delboy,

Just watched House of Cards ep. 7 and both PQ & SQ (DD) superb as always - very close to BluRay. Available in 4K for those with the kit. HD level adjusts to the available bandwidth. If not already, try using ethernet rather than WiFi if possible. My neighbours have Virgin and locally falls off a cliff during peak times. I stream via a Marantz UD7007 which is a superb all-rounder IMHO. As for content, they will have to offer more to keep my custom.

Audio Technica LP5, Marantz SA14S1se->PM14S1se-> Dali Rubicon 6 on GAIA 3 isolation feet.

LG OLED 65E7, Sky HD, Marantz UD7007->Denon X6200W->biamp Dali Opticon 6, Vokal, Ikon6 rears.

RE: Netflix

I give up, and have reverted to a post/disc service with Cinema Paradiso. At least they have the content I'm after.

It seems ridiculous I can't stream what I want using my Sony 'smart' Blueray box; I visited the Netflix site and there's no information about the cost of the available packages or what films are available. I checked Amazon Instant and found that at least half the films I have on my list in CP are charged extra for; you pay a monthly subscription, but many titles still require an additional payment. To rent one film, even if a member of Amazon prime costs as much as my CP subscription per month. 

Onward to the bright new technological age.........................

one good thing about Netflix

is that after a week or so of watching films at such a low picture quality, going back to real hd via blu disc is such a wonderful relief .Like upgrading without spending any money.

Netflix is all about TV

Netflix is all about TV content, if you are signing up for films you will probably be disappointed.  House of Cards and orange is the new black alone is worth a month or two subscription.

 

As explained in the link above from BB, it's hardly Netflix's fault Murdoch has dibs on first release
