Net Flix came to Canada

I'm just wondering how you guys in the "states" as we Canucks  like to call you like it ... if you have it. 

It was magic for me.  In two minutes I was watching movies.  We never  rent movies, nor do we go to the movies...so I was blown away. 

I can only watch on my computers right now because it requires Xbox or Wii to stream it in the TV...but I will worry about that once we decide if we want to keep it.

I have a month of free Net Flix to watch...and then will make my decision to keep it at 7.95 a month.  That is cheap. And there are sooooooooooo many.....

What say you?

We just seem to have too much going on for movies, so we've never done the Netflix subscription. Can't beat that price, though, considering what movies cost these days!

I've been a member of Netflix for years and wouldn't be without it. I stream it through my Wii for the TV in the basement, but prior to getting a Wii I bought something called a Roku box for the TV upstairs. We have Dishnetwork but even that is a dirth when it comes to anything worth watching. We LOVE it.

If we want to watch a movie, we get it from Redbox. They have stations around, like ATM's (cash machines). You probably don't have this stuff in Canada. But, it cost like a $1.00 a night. We like that. Maybe you should search redbox.com. But, I know you are loving your nexflix. That is a GREAT deal !! :)

We just have a basic system...mostly news...etc. and I can never get to see a movie unless it's about 30 years old. We are just in the process of renegotiating a new contract. The basic like we have now is 35.00/mo. and if I want movies it's another 25.00/mo. So I think I will take the basic plus use Netflix for 7.95. I will give it a month and we shall see. thanks for the input.

I just get the dvd from the rental place when I have time to watch a movie. Have you seen "Unstoppable" yet? It's awesome!!

I've had Netflix for years and just bought the Roku box so I can watch on TV. I have basic cable and it seems there is never anything on.

I haven't been to the movies or rented them in years. Netflix has many choices and I love it...

Paxie, I checked so far I don't think we can get that in Canada...what are we? chopped liver? But I'm loving NetFlix.
