    Default This or That: DVDs or Streaming Movies?

    I've been watching Netflix movies and TV shows streamed to my TV lately - actually for a year since I decided to not renew my cable!! Problem is, I'm only using Netflix (whatever comes with the flat rate) and Amazon Prime Videos (comes free with my Prime membership)- so I'm letting them control my viewing options LOL I don't buy or rent DVDs anymore. Right now, I'm too lazy to even figure out how to use the DVD player.

    What's cool about Netflix and Prime is that I can watch all those old movies from the 70s and 80s that I never thought I'd see again

    You mean you're watching "Saturday Night Fever" and "Pretty in Pink", and "The Breakfast Club" ??

    I have cable TV w/out the movie channels. It's overpriced, IMO. But, i got snagged into a 2year "deal" which includes wireless, DVR and phone. I don't own a DVD player at this time.

    I just re-activated my Netflix account but I can't do the streaming only cause it's so limited. I have cable to with the movie channels and I have the DVR because I have to record my shows and watch at my convenience. I MUST FFWD thru commercials...the worst is when I forget and catch myself sitting through the commercials or trying to FFWD and realize I'm watching it live...OY VEY!!!


    Cheerio mates!

    I watch Netflix mainly on my tablet. I love using earbuds, I can actually hear!! I just watched seasons 1-6 of Doctor Who in the past 6 weeks (can anyone say addict?) Lol. We do get DVDs too to watch movies together. We also have a Roku for the toddlers room, kids shows are endless on Netflix!!! Even the old ones that are not on anymore.

    I watch Netflix and the Amazon Prime videos on my Roku. There are some other channels on there as well, but I forget that I have added them. When I had cable, I only watched USA and SciFi/SyFy LOL So I figured I didn't need it.

    I discovered the show LOST on NetFlix, I never watched when it was on TV....I'm glad I didnt because I would have spent about 6 years of my life trying to see what that black smoke was and what the secret of the island was....... but on NetFlix I only spent one month of my life finding out

    If you liked Lost (I did it the same way, only the finalseason I watched on TV) you should check out Supernatural on Netflix!

    Me neither - I have NetFlix, which I think is about USD 8,00 / month

    Herman is enough entertainment for us at night and I'm at work during the day
