A few days ago, I signed up for the free month of Netflix Canada. I did a bit of research and the US Netflix has better movies and tv shows than the Cdn one. Big surprise for us cdns? I don't think so. LOL Anyway, since I can cancel online before the paying month ($7.99)starts, I thought I would give it a try. We have it hooked up through our Wii(wireless) and are so far happy with it. I wish they had more new movies....but it's OK, i guess. I don't think I will keep it though....as once things get back to normal, there won't be as much tv being watched.....annd we have Shaw Direct setellite tv anyway. Just wondering if anyone else out there has tried Netflix Canada or US? PS...is the there a limit on the amount you can watch? My husband days 250, but I thought it was unlimited. Doesn't really matter anyway...we will never get close to watching that many shows and movies anyway. lol Just wondering.

Yes we have used Netflix off and on for several years now. I really have no problem with the service at all. Turn around is pretty quick. Usually we send a movie back and they get it the next day and the next day they have the next movie on our list on our way too us. We have never had any problems with them really, we have sent back movies that were not in great shape and they just replace them without blaming us or anything like that. It is a good service and I think the price is reasonable.

In Canada, Netflix does not send us movies through the mail....we stream it through the internet to our computers, game consoles etc. It is instant and so far, I like it.

I've been a loyal Netflix subscriber for nearly seven years, so take my advice or suggestions only as those coming from a raving Netflix fan. LOL! Anyway, from my experience with Netflix.com (US), they offer unlimited DVD rentals, not just 250. However, you are limited by the number of DVDs you can list in your queue. The queue is the place where you list your favorite DVDs that you want shipped to your home and then Netflix ships the first one off the list, followed by the next one, etc. I've rented thousands upon thousands of DVDs from Netflix over the years and they are the most generous DVD subscription service around. The quality of the DVDs is always high. And, during times when I might have accidentally lose one of the DVDs in the mail, they offer instant forgiveness. Just report the DVD lost in the mail and you won't have to pay. Of course, if you report four dvds lost in a month, they might ask you to call and explain, but that probably won't happen. The US version of netflix offers free streaming movies online. We use that service mostly. But, at one time, we had 8 DVDs coming to the house at one time. Lots of entertainment with Netflix.

In Canada, the streaming is the only choice...which if fine with me. You can watch on your computer....connect them to your tv through a game console(Wii), I phones etc.

I had a bad experience with it, as I signed up with the introductory offer of $9.99 per month, so when I was going to renew and keep it I was going to be billed $30 per month. I called and they said it was $9.99 the first month but thereafter I would have to pay $30. I figured if they explained that in the beginning maybe I would not have felt it to be scamming me later. So I gave up on it, it was however a couple years ago, and maybe one day I will take a look again.

I have not tried netflix (USA). I know one person who does subscribe to it and they like it as well. We've thought about trying it but thought if we were rural it might be the way to go. But we are not and there's a store with a RedBox about a mile away and they charge $1 a night. Otherwise we watch movies on sites like Krackle and Hulu though they are not always "A" rated movies still cheaper than renting, buying, or a cable bill.

I have been with Netflix(US)since soon after they started out. I love it! The customer service is great. They didn't have it at first but do now. And it used to take afew days to get the movies but now it a days turn over. I can find every movie I look for including some abscure movies. But not ones that came out 4 minutes ago. Hehe I get a continual two movies, as many as I can watch in a month's time.
