I started using Netflicks and I love it, however I have a question. How often do they offer new choices of tv shows and movies?
Oh and I am thinking of adding Hulu. Netflicks has one season of a show I like, but Hulu has all three. lol

Honestly, FI and I are disappointed with Netflix and debating getting rid of it. It seems like they only add new shows and movies to Netflix streaming maybe once a month. It takes FOREVER for new releases.

We DID get rid of our netflix.

I have loved it so far, but i can definitely see getting bored with it eventually. There doesn’t seem to be as many shows as I thought, and some are really behind in seasons. I just watched the entire L Word show, which had all 6 seasons, but I started Drop Dead Diva AND The Big C and realized too late that the following seasons were not available, which kind of bites.

@Legallyblondiebride: same here. only reason we keep it is to watch series of shows. its getting pretty boring though. :/

I would say about once a month. I love my Netflix too, but I also haven’t had cable for years so it’s really the only thing my TV has anymore.

New stuff comes on every so often. I don’t watch a lot of TV so every time I turn my netflix on I always manage to find something to watch (TED-talks!!). Couldn’t give you an interval of time though. Sometimes they get the license for a BUNCH of new movies at once & I don’t know when to start. Other times there’s a dry spell but there’s still plenty of stuff on. I’m personally happy with the selection & love netflix!!

netflix was awesome before. now it sucks. we cancelled the dvd section when the price went up and now we only have the streaming and it takes forever for them to update it these days. They used to constantly update their movies and they had a wider range of movies available for streaming but they have gone down hill lately

Netflix doesn’t update often. I am also looking at Hulu plus

Netflix really isn’t worth it if you want to stream newer stuff – they just can’t get the rights to it. I like it for older stuff, they have a lot of TV shows I always wanted to watch but never made it to. I also like getting movies by DVD because I am too forgetful for something like Redbox.
I have Hulu Plus and LOVE LOVE LOVE it. It can stream to your TV through the Wii now, which is great, and they have an incredible selection of new TV shows. I keep all the shows I watch in my queue and new episodes drop in and are waiting for me.

We have Netflix and Hulu Plus. IMHO it really is worth it to have both of them. Yes I am catching up on old shows with Netflix, but Hulu gives me the more current season/shows

@Earlybride: They update whenever they can or as often as their contracts with the distributors will allow. You can get Glee streaming in whole seasons, but you can get their volume discs (chunks of episodes) on disc. We have dropped Netflix in lieu of Hulu Plus because not only do you get back episodes of a show, you get the current episodes as well. We didn’t have cable so we were spending $19 a month on Netflix, plus $30ish on movie rentals and having to wait massive chunks of time (a week of or more) for new episodes of shows we liked to appear on Hulu.
We’re going to add Netflix again when “Arrested Development” comes back.

I use both Netflix and Hulu. LOVE Hulu for recent stuff/ keeping up eith some current shows and LOVE Netflix for some of its stuff. I think adding Hulu would be worth it!

@bells: Ditto! In fact we went ahead and put our Netflix account on “hold” and just use Hulu Plus for now. Netflix is great for watching an entire (old/no longer on the air) series or things like that. But as far as new content is concerned it’s few and far between. We use Hulu Plus to catch up on new/currently airing shows. But Neflix is much better than Hulu for movies. It just depends on what you want to watch.
Update: At some point we may put Hulu on hold and re-active Netflix until we run out of new things on Netflix. They’re not expensive but I can’t reason having both at the same time in addition to paying for cable.

we use netflix and its good for a lot of older TV shows but kills me every time i want to watch a movie. nothing to choose from. we looked into getting hulu plus and streaming but we were under the impression that a lot of the content was available online only, not through streaming (to our roku). am i wrong?? so confused…
