RE: Why is Netflix so shit?!
Yeah I totally agree.
We had netflix for a month here for free. Though I live in Canada and it has noticeably less quality stuff than the american version.
It was quite the effort to find things worth watching. That included tv shows and not just movies. though I have seen a lot of movies and unless they are amazing I am not huge into rewatching things.
After about a week and a half of dredging the depths of content me and the wife only ever turned it on so that our kid could watch Caillou whenever she wanted.

The kids programming was really the big improvement we found, and not because there was a lot available, because there really wasn't, but because it was on demand. Anyone with kids will tell you how valuable it is to have your kids favorite shows on tap whenever you want them.

Not overly thrilled with Netflix myself. While it has some television series that I like such as Cake Boss, Whose Wedding Is It Anyway, and a couple others...the only thing that is remotely redeeming in regard of Netflix is the children's favorites which are great to have seeing as kids always have their favorites.
Then....only two of my child's favorites are really on there as Netflix does not believe in Scooby Doo.

I use Netflix and Hulu on my PS3 and I'm cool with it. I only use the streaming version but it's has its up and downs. Netflix doesn't have as many title selections as Hulu but Netflix is ALOT more reliable when it comes to streaming. Hulu sucks at streaming and has ads :/

Netflix has Family Guy and Bones, so I'm set Smile

Hulu huh? Think I have seen some of my anime selection through Hulu....adds always interrupt about midway. It is annoying ....but bear with it.

I tend to watch documentaries on it. Otherwise I don't use it much.

RE: Why is Netflix so shit?!
I use the heck out of mine! I was surprised to find how good the mobile version works. Having netflix on my phone is really nice when I'm stuck out on the road. I like the tv shows. No commercials are awesome too. Haven't tried Hulu for mobile yet...? I hardly even watch cable anymore when I'm home. I do like to watch documentaries. Are there any good ones to look out for on netflix?

RE: Why is Netflix so shit?!
I killed my satellite TV in favor of Netflix. The American Netflix has a decent selection, but none of the really new and popular movies and not all of the best TV shows. It depends on what they're able to get the licenses to. The TV and movie companies are loath to make it easier for Netflix to make their titles available without being able to sell individual DVDs or digital downloads, and that won't happen in Netflix's buffet-style setup. They make Netflix pay huge amounts for the best titles.

But I like Netflix for its TV shows, BBC TV shows, foreign flicks, documentaries, and whatever other movies I can find worth watching. There is no where else that I've found in the US that you can have such easy access to movies and TV shows that aren't made in the US. But if you're looking to catch the best blockbuster movies and the newest episodes of TV shows, Netflix will disappoint.

Other than that- there's Sidereel, TVDuck, and a host of other sites out there that link to hosted content, which is sometimes less than honest. Wink
