    With that Netflix player do you have to pay a monthly fee to keep getting movies? or do you just pay the $99 to buy it and have free movies forever after that? That thing looks pretty cool.

    CHEAPER ALTERNATIVE:

    I have a laptop (HP Pavillion DV9220US) with HDMI in/output so I don't have to buy the box :D I call it crApple TV since it is windows based.

    Although if I didn't have this computer I'd more than likely be buying the box along with you.

    That's not a bad deal at all. Can you get HD moves through that service?

    I lucked out he was at my door at 8.45 Am, no stalking this time.

    I have been using macs many years, but had a bad Air, so switched to a PC for a sort 8 months, was going to wait and get a new release butreally happy i didnt wait, after the free back to school offer and selling the ipod, I paid 699.00for the low end macbook, even sent it to my NH addy to avoid taxs, just bought 2G of ram for 22 bucks on ebay and I am set.

    We do the $8.99 a month plan. I love having movies delivered to our door.

    The "instant view" for movies is great if you like documentaries or a Columbo movie you missed. Otherwise it is slim pickings!

    I think it's delusional to say that it is free. You do pay and like most everything in life there is a cost associated. I believe Netflix stated several years ago that it would run at break-even in order to accumulate as much market-share as possible against the like of Blockbuster and others.

    And my point is that no one can say that what is available to view instantly is new or prime time. You get the occasional new title but it is few and far between. I just hope Netflix will increase the quality of the titles they offer because right now it is lacking.

    And didn't you pay $99 for your Roku? Doesn't sound free to me. But if it works for you...Awesome!

    Its free to me as I never watch the free ones i get on the computer, I have a 42" in the living room so why watch it on a 13" I laugh at those who do.

    I got the box free, so I am happy but would pay twice as much :)
    I never could see why anyone would would prefer a 13" screen to a tv, unless you are traveling or a student.

    I just ordered a mouse carrying case that folds into a mouse pad made by Belkin. I should get it Monday. I love getting new things.
