    My friend uses netflix, and has nothing but great things to say about it. You can have the movies as long as you like, have jsut about every movie you would want, and they send you an envelope to send the dvd back and the postage is alreayd paid. I'm thinking about signing up for it as well.

    I used netflix for a few months, it's really nice. They have really obscure movies that you couldn't find at regular rental places let alone have even heard about. And for me it only took 1 day to get the old movies back to them and 2 days to get the new movies. I never had any problems, and if you have the means, it's a good deal considering you could clone every DVD they send you. It's like 3 movies out at a time for $19.99 a month or 5 movies out at a time for $24.99 a month. Postage is paid too so all you have to do is throw them in the mail.

    I canceled my account just because I'm trying to save money, but I regret not jacking some of the DVDs and just saying I never received them. I'm curious as to what their policy is on that.

    ^what he said pretty much sums it up. it's a real good deal if you usually rent quite a bit of movies. and i think you're allowed to "lose" one or two dvd's before they cancel your account, but i'm not sure.

    my cuzz worked there.
    he said that the whole
    set up is a cool deal.
    if youre a movie freak,
    or rent movies frequently,
    its cool...saves time/money.
    my cuzz would watch
    the flicks while shipping
    them out, or on his lunch.
    he said they had alot of DVDs.

    my ex girl had netflix and i abused her account frequently. her list of what she wanted to rent was 80% my shit. we would watch movies all the time, so it made sense. it's a great deal if you're kind of a movie nerd.
     
  8. I'm very seriously considering signing up. I don't know if they'll send to PR though.

    i've had nextflix for more than half the year now and i love it.

    we rent movies that we'd never think about in the video store. and its always nice to come home to a new movie.

    its only 20 bucks a month and its sooooo worth it if you're a movie buff.

    one thing that would be really ill, and maybe they have it, but something thats like what is on amazon where you get a book and it shows you other books that you might like. i think i'm gonna have to sign up as soon as i get moved into my new crib.

    i think they do! based upon what you rent, once you rent on movie for instance. you rent it and on the bottom they will have three movies that you'll like as well.

    also if you keep rating other movies (you can do that), based on what you rate, they'll keep recommending movies to you.

    They also have a huge selection of foreign films, documentaries, and television programs.


    Edit: They do have that recommendation system, you guys are right.

    How are they about new releases?

    Can you get something the day/day after it comes out?
