I use Vudu. It's like having a Redbox in your living room. Netflix streaming is really only good for television shows and Indy films.

There is a reason why Netflix is having financial problems: you can watch (or download) just about every movie now online. Just type in whichever movie you want to watch and then browse through the links until you find it available--for free--online. If you are really intent on paying for movies, you can usually rent via your cable provider, then watch the film on your t.v.

Why does that sound like a senior citizen with premature ejaculation problems?

I think you are pretending to not know what I am talking about just so you can be rude.

I haven't looked into it but Blockbuster is now advertising, comparing their service to Netflix.

Their claim to fame is that they have a B&M store to boot.

Nope. I really DON'T know what you are talking about. Netflix is still streaming and DVD by mail, so you have presented at least two choices there, then you don't say what genres you like, so you leave us to guess whether you prefer comedy, drama, romance, horror, science fiction, foreign, art, new releases, tv shows, etc.

When I ask a question, I try not to leave it open ended, and if I have asked one and been told that it needs to be more precise, I respond. When someone refuses to do that or ignores responses, I find that rude. So, since you want something better than Netflix, there is a new energy company that just had a good show at the IPO. May I suggest that? Finding a rising stock is pretty hard these days.
