Someone said :
You don't think torrents had a role to play?

only a small percent would be using torrents

Their dvd by mail is what killed off the video stores.

Now they're getting out of that business model.
Soon to be online only.

Torrents are a bit complicated for the mainstream.

This is going to be a life saver for me if it has all the shows my Mam watches. She can just watch them on her ipad.

We already have DVD by mail services in this country. It hasn't closed xtravision.

So what is different about Netflix's dvd-by-post service?

I can see the advantages of the streaming service.

Sometimes a brand name just builds up. Seems to be what happened with them. I'd say the European model will focus more on online

In fairness the existing mail dvd services are a bit weak sauce and overpriced to boot.

The advantage was one of price.
At the local Blockbuster or other video rental store it was $5 per film, for 3 days, then late fees applied.

Netflix had a flat fee of $11 a month, for 3 movies at a time, as many as you could watch in a month. If you were good at it, you could go through at least 30 films a month, which would set you back $150 at Blockbusters.

On the other hand Netflix may not survive at all.
Major turmoil going on right now.

It's available now.

You can sign-up for a 1 month free trial at the site (requires credit card) and download apps for PS3 / Xbox or just watch on your PC / Smart TV.

What's the catalogue like? Do we get tv shows or just films like on iTunes?

I was going to browse their horror selection, to get an idea what range they had, but it looks like i have to sign up to do that.
Im still pretty happy to download what i want to watch, but occasionally i come across something obscure i want to watch thats not available. I would probably sign up for a site that could offer me even the odd one or two movies i couldnt find elsewhere, but if i can see what they have on offer then its probably not worth my while to sign up.
Seems a bit stupid not to have a catalog available so people can decided if its worth the effort.

Then again the free month sounds ok, although im getting more and more concerned about using my credit card online, even if they are not going to charge anything to it.

Re browsing, saw this on Neogaf

Just discovered you can search on there website without signing up if you want to see what the selection is like.

just go to the browse selection on there website and click any movie in any of the categories... then click on a actor or the director and it will list all the other content they are connected to.

from there you can search and see if your favorite show / movie is on there.

Does it be updated as soon as the show airs?

I wouldn't want to be waiting days / weeks for shows when they're probably available elsewhere almost immediately.

No, most of the US shows only have the first few seasons, unless they're from a few years back.
