We've recently decided to discontinue our satellite services. We were only watching tv maybe 2 days a week and hour here and there. The bill was always a $100.00 no matter what. I just can't see paying that kind of money for " Family Packages" and then to be disgusted by the commercials. Sometimes it comes down to too much info..
Netflix is offering a free 30 day trial. We tried it. They have an incredible selection of movies and tv shows. Whatever you decide to have put on a DVD does get to you the next day. The only setback to quing a movie or show to DVD is 10 minutes of commercials for other shows you might be interested in. Other then that the DVD'S are high quality, clearly marked and labeled with the listed show. When your done with it. Return it. They send you the next DVD that you have qued. You can cancel or remove anything that you have selected at anytime.
We now have it streaming throughout the house. It's fast, no delays like youtube or the major networks have with stalling. You can pause and resume later if you want. It saves your place. We signed up for a small package. It's more then enough for a family of 4 to use, but it's only $26.00 a month.
Once you've signed up for the trial the selection that they offer gets larger. Searching for a particular show or movie helps. They will if you rate the shows customize the selections to suit you. Not a bad deal at all.
