I started with a 2 week trial, too. Got with the XBox Live membership. We've been subscribing to Netflix for a year now. We are on the one movie at a time plan. It's nice that you don't have to go out to get a movie, and if you don't have time to watch the one have for several days, no sweat. Also, when there's nothing on the tube you can just fire up the XBox and stream a movie. The wife and son watched the first two episodes of the original Star Trek on it today. That season is only going to be on there for about another week though, for anyone interested.
