Legality isn't determined by whether or not there are ads. Of course the site is going to look for a way to make money. If they aren't charging viewers, they're going to have ads.

But the legality is determined by whether or not they are paying the licensing rights for the movies.

I'm very surprised that it's more popular than prime. As for naming 3-5 good movies that they have on prime, I just glanced at their catalog, and could name 5. Whiplash, Titanic, Catch Me If You Can, Saving Private Ryan, Gattaca, etc.
Those movies weren't Amazon original movies. They were produced by other companies. Are we talking movies that are offered on each site or Netflix original and Amazon Prime original movies?

Just got the email - Netflix is raising it's rates $3 to $15.99. I'm not sure it's worth it for that - damn near everytime i search for a movie or show it's not available streaming. They have a few things worth watching at any one time and a whole lot of crap.

Oh I thought we were talking about what movies to watch in general.

Netflix occasionally gets a good movie, but their bread and butter seems to be their in-house TV shows these days.

I watch the stuff I want to at the theater for $10 in a capacity I can't do at home. If I want to rewatch a movie a few times, I'll invest in the 4K BR. I wait on other things to hit the discount bin.

It seems hard to have one source for recent movies these days (if ever). It's only getting more fragmented.

It also makes their name inaccurate Net'flix', since flicks means movies, but they put their best efforts in TV shows, and not their flicks.

That's deliberate on the part of the content producers (who are trying to force you to subscribe to their exclusive streaming platforms).

Consumers want a single "subscription library" where they can find everything. That's exactly what the content producers don't want, because it might lower the prices they can charge. Unfortunately it's not possible to build a "streaming library" the way a DVD/Blu-Ray library can be created, as streaming doesn't involve any physical media. if the content producer refuses to sell streaming rights or refuses to renew them with a particular service, the service has no choice but to yank the film or TV show from their streaming catalog.
