I would like to see instant service include dvd and blu ray extra features like making of and deleted scenes then we can do away with discs altogether. After all you main selling point is the alternative film viewing option from renting discs or buying them. Lets face it we get them for the extra features otherwise we would make the effort to see the film in the cinema.
If this change is made then I really see Netflix becoming a household name for the future of home film entertainment provided they can increase new content volume and retain licenses.
Oh yes for Japanese anime fans I am sure I am not alone in wishing that Japanese audio option with English subtitles was made available. I know its a separate license but if its not possible then I will go back to buying dvds or waiting for box sets while streaming content from other websites.
I've been a netflix subscriber until recently and I've found that the selection has become stale in the past year or so.
Some of the newer streaming sites have managed to get current network TV content, mainstream movies and also manage to get new releases much more quickly. Unfortunately that is not the case with Netflix. If I want a new movie, I have to put it on my list to have it sent to me... I can't stream it. '
In addition, streaming on Netflix has been choppy recently. Many times, I've been disconnected from the service mid movie and had to restart. You might think be tempted to say "Check your Internet Connection".. but I've not had issues with other streaming services such as Hulu, Voodoo or internet streaming on my computer and Smart TV.
Overall, I give it a 3 - because there are some shows I do enjoy such as a good 10 hour marathon session of law and order... but outside of older shows, there isn't much available.
I hope this review helps Netflix get a better sense of what customers are looking for. The concept is good.. but without current and requested content... it's just a good concept gone wrong.
Well... Netflix used to be great. That was back a few years ago. Nowadays with more (and cheaper) competition like Amazon Prime or iTunes ... it's pretty hard to justify shelling out $9 / month for their streaming service when they rarely update the content and their PS3 software is pretty poor, forgets passwords and crashes...
Serier skal ses på TV, og så længe at jeg skal bruge en extender (Xbox 360, PS3 eller computer), så går den sku ikke.
Udbuddet og kvaliteten er god, men så længe den ikke kan tilgås fra Smart TV fra 2011 , så skal jeg ikke bruge det. Skuffende...
f.eks. serien "The Walking Dead" er der kun 1 sæson af, selvom der findes 2.
og f.eks. serien "Firefly" ikke i HD selvom den kan købes på Blu-ray og det hele.
Og serien Fringe er der kun 2 sæsoner af selvom der er lavet 5 sæsoner og 4 afsnit
DET ER IKKE GODT NOK men jeg ville med glæde betale for det hvis det var ordenligt opdateret med de nyeste titler. og i HD!!
Til at starte med var jeg skeptisk, da jeg syntes at der relativt få titler i forhold til prisen, og gav da kun 3 stjerner. Men nu hvor jeg har brugt tjenesten et stykke tid, har jeg fundet ud af at tjeneste fortjener en stjerne mere!
Jeg bruger tjenesten hver dag. Det er fedt at man selv kan bestemme hvad man vil se hvornår. Mega fedt at tjenesten virker via PS3 og at man derfor ikke skal have computeren tændt for at bruge tjenesten. Jeg syntes dog stadig at der mangler flere og nyere titler
Netflix er en god og ret genial service. Dog er indholdet lidt skrabet i Danmark, men det kommer nok, bare giv dem tid :) eks. Klovn: The Movie findes på det amerikanske men ikke på det danske.
Og så er den første måned gratis ;-)

Jeg fik tilbud om at blive kunde hos Netflix og første mdr var GRATIS, skulle lige skrive mine detaljer og ok, så kom betalingssiden frem og selv om der står med småt de IKKE vil trække penge på kortet før efter den første mdr. som er gratis, så kunne jeg ikke oprette mig FORDI der INGEN penge var på mit betalingskort, men hvorfor skulle der også være det når den første mdr. er GRATIS ??
Og der er intet galt med mit kort, der er bare ikke 79 kr på som de ville prøve at trække, og man kan jo altid tænke hvad så hvis jeg ikke vil være kunde, hvor svært er det at få sine penge tilbage, jeg ved systemet hos bankerne kan tage op til en mdr før beløbet er frit.
Dette er en "rigtig" gode måde at starte et firma op på ved at lyve.
Det er en ommer Netflix, i kan ikke skrive i IKKE vil trække men så prøver i alligevel...!!!
Her er citat fra netflix egen betalingside ved oprettelse:

The service Netflix provide is great - the site is easy to navigate, the movies stream really fast and the price is great. The only downside is that the range of title available is pretty small. You can work through all the good stuff pretty quickly, unlike Lovefilm which has pretty much everything ever released. A lot of Netflix content are TV shows from Channel 4 (such as the Inbetweeners and Shameless) which are available to watch for free on Channel 4's steaming site, so not sure why you would need a paid for account on Netflix to watch them.
This is an awesome service. They have really every tv show you can think of, a bit thinner supply of movies though. But to be able to choose any tv show and look at almost any episode of it instantly is really great. And this for 7$ a month! That's the price to rent two movies normally, but with Netflix you have unlimited numbers of rentals for this price. They have also got a really good iPad app. Highly recommended!

As a person who relies on subtitles Netflix does have some subtitled movies unlike lovefilm.
Only two stars because some of their tv series episodes are missing the subtitles ..I was mad as hell cos I actually paid for a month.
Tv series was Roswell the last few eps of each season don't have subtitles!
Not recommended if you rely on subtitles.
I am currently on my free trial and because of our terrible tv reception I find Netflix very convenient to watch via my laptop.
Some great series on it but my main criticism is the lack of newer releases. But see how it goes for the rest of my trial.
Når man har fået oprettet en konto så virker det fint, men udvalget er som dvd kasserne i Kvickly og hvem gider overhovedet bruge tid på de gamle dårlige film. Desværre havde jeg ikke læst på trustpilot først så nu skal jeg bare huske at afmelde servicen før jeg få en regning
Clean, pleasant web site, but most of us these days want to watch our Netflix through our TV. Due to Netflix reliance on Microsoft Silverlight, virtually nothing except your computer will play it. Support on all the common things like Plex, XBMC, Boxee etc just seems to be lacking. So close and yet so far!
I've used Netflix mostly for the TV shows. I've watched a few Films using the service, not the best range but they are suitable for the price. I don't see a lot of new content appearing either. Use the free trial to see if the content is what you're looking for.
Before they hiked up their prices, they were great. We had 1 DVD at a time with unlimited rentals and unlimited streaming for $10 per month and we were happy. Suddenly, it went up to $16 per month for this same service. We now only have the streaming. The streaming is nice and decently priced at $8 per month unlimited. It is very good for kids stuff, t.v. shows and documentaries but the movie selection is pretty limited.
I good price for an on demand service. A reasonable selection of older content but probably too late to market to dislodge sky/ bbc iplayer and lovefilm. Hope it does well in the uk market as its a very well executed idea bit it is unfortunately too late for the uk market to make a big impact.
Som dansker havde jeg i starten svært ved at få armene ned overfor Netflix. Udvalget er plausibelt. Ikke de nyeste premierefilm eller nyeste sæsoner i diverse serier.
Jeg er stadig vild med tjenesten, især på baggrund af prisen som er yderst fair.

I was initially skeptical about using Netflix,despite recommendations from friends and family.
It was very easy to sign up and start my free 30 day trial.There are lots of choice in different categories,from cartoons and comedies to thrillers and everything in between. Placing movies in the queue is very easy and can be changed at any time.
I no longer receive the DVDs in the post i stream via my PS3 and its great most things are in HD quality and for 5.99 a month its a bargain .
Highly reccomend to any film / TV series fans 10/10 !!
There were NO movies that were on the 'available' lists of selections for our XBox 360 that interested myself or my children while we were paying for this service. My daughter could not even order "Twilight" or "Eclipse" even though the movies had been out for years with a message saying 'DVD' rental ONLY. Most of the selection seemed to come from 5 years or older or be straight to DVD releases. VERY VERY disappointed and feel ripped off, as I had high expectations for Netflix based on the commercials and what the website promised. NEVER AGAIN will I fall for such misleading advertising, and such a waste of money.
I have been using Netflix for about a year, primarily using the streaming option with a Wii, and I have been thrilled. There are occasional service issues, but they do not impact viewing significantly. No more so than a commercial.
My only real complaint has the been the user interface, which they changed in July. I switched to using Watch.io for browsing new titles, but still have the Netflix service and now I'm happy.
We've been Netflix subscribers at my household for years now, and never have we been let down. Even long before "Watch Instantly", a feature allowing you to view certain movies immediately at your computer or other home media device, Netflix was the greatest with an incredibly large selection of DVDs, delivered FAST to your door.
One great thing about Netflix in the early days was the complete lack of LATE FEES, which no one had dared try before. With Netflix, you can keep a DVD as long as you want. The deal is, you can only keep a certain number of DVDs with you at once, so if you want to see more, you gotta send 'em back.
However, since they added the Watch Instantly feature, Netflix has become even greater. You can watch a good selection of movies and TV shows instantly on your computer or other web-enabled media device (like a PS3, Wii, or Apple TV). The selection is limited to what the studios and copyright holders allow, but there is plenty to keep you entertained.
Lately there has been a lot of negative talk about Netflix's rates increasing. I don't want to go into this too much here, but the truth is that Netflix is being pressured by studios and copyright holders to pay them more money. For Netflix to stay around, they have to charge more to keep up with greedy studio executives. And even still, they're asking for the right to stream more and more movies through the Watch Instantly program. Don't hate on Netflix for doing everything they can to try and help you have the best entertainment experience possible.
And trust me, there's no better place to go for movies and TV than Netflix.
We love netflix, it's so convenient, not having to drive to the video store, and the catalog is so much larger - every tiime we went to blockbuster, it takes 45 minutes of slowwwwly walkingggg arounnnnddd the place - but with Netflix we can easily choose all the favorites and create like a calendar of movies. And another pain with blockbuster was the merchandizing at the counter - geez they even sell those silly band things, 80 types of candy, t-shirts, breath mints...whatever they can make a buck on. This is not a rant against blockbuster, but I am really happy with netflix. thank you.
Can not believe the sucess rate I have had with NETFLIX. For better than a year we have been receiving 1 to 3 DVD's per week; exactly as promised.
Had one bad DVD and they sent another the next day.
Their catgories, ratings and Q make the visit to the site a pleasure.
This is also a great place to use to research most (not all) movies.
