My understanding is that Netflix only has domestic rights to allow streaming of movies. It's not because Netflix is being mean, they just can't show them.

Right, the Pay-Per-View on demand market is already covered pretty well. Since I've gotten this box, I haven't watched all that many actual movies via the box, I've used the mail service for that. But I have watched a lot of TV (some shows that I haven't seen in ages, and some I have never heard bef...

Now if it was exploding monster trucks... then I might watch. 8) Seriously though, I'd like the content to expand, and some of the content doesn't interest me, but there is plenty of content that I enjoy quite a bit. The author of this CNET article wants Netflix to pursue the exact same model as App...

I've been a catching up on old episodes of Quincy. A little dated at times, but still fun. I've also been watching Emergency, it's old, and the characters are pretty stiff, but it's still not bad. I've discovered Coupling - I didn't think I'd like it, but it's great. I like to catch up on episodes o...

I can't imagine that anyone could show any actual harm at not being able to add more than 500 titles, so I can't imagine a lawsuit going anywhere. But adding a footnote that says "*Up to 500" would be a good idea.

I've had mine for close to a week now, very happy with it. Sprung for the deluxe cable package, $20 for an HDMI cable, a component cable and a digital audio cable is a good deal. I only signed up for Netflix because of this box. I chose the 1 DVD at a time package, as I primarily plan on using viewi...

I signed up for Netflix because of the Roku box. After I heard about it, I signed up for the Netflix trial, and watched a few things on my computer, and decided to order the Roku box. The box is very inobtrusive. It sits nicely beside my VCR, taking up space that would otherwise be wasted. I signed ...
