Another dumb move by Netflix.

Damn, I just signed up and they're already throwing customer service out the window. This seems like a REALLY stupid move to me. Why force your customers to use their PC when you're doing everything you can to get them using Netflix on their TVs, Blu-Ray players, game consoles, etc.?

Not well thought out at all.

On the positive side of Netflix news:
They're getting the libraries from three more studios.
Adding more ABC shows. This is only cool because I'll watch the seasons of Scrubs I missed when I stopped watching. ABC, for me, is all about their Wednesday night lineup. I can't name any ABC shows that air on other days.

I was using that queue as a bookmark system to remind myself of things I stumbled upon but wanted to watch later.

I guess I could just keep a notebook next to the TV remote and write things down..............

Ditto.

When Netflix streams everything, we can make this a relevant question, until then DVDs are necessary. I went on last night looking for something to put in front of my kids for a few minutes and the first three shows I looked up were all unavailable for streaming.

My kid discovered Scooby Doo movies, and loves them.  Once you watch a few kid movies, tons more get recommended.

Netflix for $8/month is so awesome.

I just saw their email about the outage. Because I'm still in the free trial phase they extended it by a day.

I can't fault their customer service on this issue.

You guys actually search for movies on your BR players and Xbox's?

I always just use the laptop. Otherwise it would take forever.

Why would it take forever? My capable devices connect just as fast as my desktop or laptop.

Plus, they have search features that are pretty easy to use.

Yeah, it doesn't take that long to search on the PS3.  Just as fast as texting on a phone, basically.

I don't use anything but the PC due to lack of keyboard on other devices.  I'm at my PC too much for it to matter to me that they are making this change.

Yeah, lack of keyboard was my main thought. No big deal for me, either.

The change is the instant queue, not the search function.  I hope they still implement some sort of bookmarking system.

Found something I don't like about Netflix and it's pretty major: they censor content.

Archer season 1, episode 5 has a line where one of the gay hit men says "i said let's hire a couple of cracked out mexicans (or puerto ricans)" and they bleeped out the nationality.

This comment is on the DVD set which is the only other place I've watched the show.

Makes me wonder what else they're censoring.

All Star Treks ever coming in July.

I have never seen DS9 or Enterprise in their entirety; I may do that now.  Heard DS9 got really good in it's last few season, and Enterprise very good in its last season.

Maybe... but not definitely...

Venture Brothers are censored on TV, but then the DVD's are not censored.

Netflix MAY by just airing what was on TV, and not the DVD versions........ which does seem a little odd considering their business model...... but it doesn't necessarily mean Netflix is censoring.  FX just may have given them the censored versions for streaming, which DOES actually make a little sense, because then there is still some value to be had from buying the DVD's.

Awesome trek news.

Sound reasoning on the censorship thing. I might write them and ask.

As for the former, that's pretty much the dual of my opinion on the series.  As for the latter, it's got a fucking theme song popularized by Rod Stewart.

That's weird.  I could have sworn you could already do that.  I can't believe that we haven't had a conflict yet.  Three family members here watch stuff all day long independent of each other.  Hard to believe we haven't had any overlap yet.
