I can always find something I like on streaming, but I'm not happy to be reduced to one dvd at a time. At some point they'll probably even take that away--they better work on improving both their content as well as their delivery.
I've been a happy customer for a long time, but these growing pains of theirs are expensive and irksome.

I heard that HBO would not be offering their specials right away like they have been over neftlix streaming service. Instead they want to wait a few, dont know if it was weeks or months but, they want to wait a certain amount of time before they allow it to stream.

It makes sense to me though financially. They want more people to pay for HBO and Starz instead of pay for netlix streaming service.

Why would someone pay for HBO when they can spend a fraction of the cost and get the same thing from netflix a few days after its released on HBO/starz

Starz selection of movies is decent to say the least. I prefer HBO or Showtime.

Netflix Streaming Issues
I was watching streaming last night but did not get the error code.
Anyone out there have this happen?
Netflix has responded to this issue and says “no Netflix member is limited to less than two concurrent streams.” Streaming limitation messages were served in error.

It also strips Netflix's streaming service of some of its newer releases from studios such as Disney and Sony.
That's the part I'll miss the most (I have 4 kids). Been with Netflix for almost 10 years and have loved it...starting to get worried.
