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.

I disagree. As much as I would like to see them make subtitles available, I don't think they have any moral obligation to do so, nor should be required to do so by any government entity. They should only do so if it enhances value for their shareholders.

Personally, I would find their streaming service more useful if they would allow customers to enable subtitles.

I meant offer us a option. I am not saying we should force everybody to have subtitles on everything.

I know you are talking about an option. All I was saying is Netflix should not be legally forced to offer that option. Netflix should continue to have the OPTION of offering the option.

Nothing new or recent. Another nagative is that you cannot fast forward through the movie. However it does 'remember' where you left off that last time you opened the movie.

Sign up for a free unless you are afraid of giving out your credit card numbers.

I know hulu.com. They are pretty sweet. I go on that quite often.

I just think they should be legally forced to offer us option because it will cost them money to be able to offer us the option. I am pretty sure they will not do it, they will just want to save $$$ as all companies do. Being legally forced makes them and others aware of how big this issue is for deaf/hoh people. Just my opinion.

They stream just fine, but first it will check your bandwidth and adjust the quality accordingly so that it won't run out of buffer space and have that problem. It pretty much loads right up and plays, but skipping around in the timeline will take a little longer than a DVD.

The only downside is that if you have really high-end equipment, the compression will be more pronounced.

No, what it does is increase the costs for EVERYONE for the benefit of a small segment of the customers.

How would you feel if subtitles were an option, but to get subtitles for a movie, there was a $5/movie fee? If you said anything along the lines of "against it" or "wouldn't like it" - then that's just proof you want everyone else to pay the costs for your benefit.

It works well, provided you have good internet connection. Most of the time my stuff comes in at full quality and in HD. if a few of us are running our PC's on the internet though, it'll slow down a bit.

takes about 30 seconds to load and buffer enough for you to watch the movie uniterrupted.
