I meant when browsing the internet back in the days when Netscape was still a viable browser, when popups first starting appearing, when AOL was just starting to allow their members access to the internet.

I can hold a grudge a long time.

FrankZ - Haha... that is a long time!

My Dad being a sports fan would never give up cable either. My love of sports reached it's pinnacle in 2004 when my Red Sox finally won the World Series, taking out the Yankees in an epic battle beforehand. I'm now content to just check the scores before I go to work.

Netflix really is great. Cable tv and internet is around 100/month for me. so i decided to cancel the tv, keep the internet and it is only 25/month now. since i do occasionally want to watch old tv shows, netflix is the way to go.

its only 9/month now, and im saving over 60/month now!!!



I have heard that hulu is doing something similar to netflix, and i might have to check that out soon. anyone heard anything about Hulu plus?

That is a good point. I used to watch the channel all the time, but lately i have been too busy. On the food network website, they have a lot of videos i watch at work sometimes.

but yeah you are right, i still want that channel back. :/

Deepak,

Not sure about the hulu plus. Netflix has been great so far. I like that if your streaming a show you don't have the commercial interruptions. Hulu still does that. Netflix does has some food network shows you just have to look for them. They need more Alton Brown.

Were not missing Direct TV at all, only watching maybe 3 channels, paying for HDTV and not receiving what were paying for isn't enough to keep us as customers. They make it easy to change, but not to cancel.

Munky.

Do you ever feel like you have too many options? Sometimes when Im on netflix, i never know what to watch.

Recently I started to watch nip/tuck and that should last for awhile. Not a good show to watch while eating anything though

Nip / Tuck? Ohhh my!! No not a good thing to watch while eating chicken. Skinless anyone? what's injected under that skin?.. Silicone chick..LOL!!

I did notice that netflix's options are many. They did a great job putting together other shows you might like into categories. Checked out Hulu yesterday they just don't have the selection that net offers.

Thismuch closer to finally having a complete set of CI bake ware.
