They've got a lot more stuff than before and some new releases only take a month or two to go instant.

You watch on a laptop?

30 Rock is a great show, just not for everyone I guess.

I watch it through my PS3, the set up is fantastic.

I have had it for a few months so I am starting to run out of stuff to watch.

I watched 2 episodes of season 4 last night and this dude started to annoy the fuck out of me

I used to DVR season 1 but kind of lost interest

Broke it in with "Midnight Run" to wash away the sight of "Little Fockers" clips. Well worth it for Netflix customers.


Just linked up my Amazon account as well for Video On Demand (PPV). This thing is fucking great. Not going to help me lose weight though.

I still have no clue.

Although we are all happy rearad likes his new toy, I think we can all admit he's done a pretty shitty job of explaining what it does.

Its pretty much the same thing as watching Netflix through a ps3 or similar set up for people that don't have one of those systems. I'm pretty sure its the same selection for watching instantly

I think that's why I am confused.

I can stream Netflix through my Blu-Ray.

Is this different or does it just stream more than Netflix straight to TV?

Look forward to hearing rearad's answer when he wakes up at 1:30PM.

It's a device for streaming. You hook up to your tv and sync up your netflix, amazon, or whatever other accounts that allow you to stream video to watch them on your tv. For me, I can watch whatever is in my netflix instant queue or whatever I order through Video On Demand (PPV) via my amazon account.

If you already have a PS3 or blu-ray player that streams, then you probably don't need it. However, the Roku has a bunch of channels that aren't available elsewhere.

For $80, it greatly enhances my movie-watching capabilities.

Any other questions?

Ah.



No.


It's just staring at me, begging me to order up a movie...

So how big is the hard disk? Is this something that can replace owning blu-rays, dvds, etc.? Just download the movies and watch and leave them there?
