I have Netflix, Amazon prime and I'll probably sign up for Hulu.  They have the Stephen King 11.22.63 that I'm dying to see and I've heard good things about their original shows in general.  I have cable but only order the premium channels when they're 1/2 price.  Verizon just gave me HBO free until May 31 for being a loyal customer.  I didn't even know it.

Amazon prime is great because the next episode just starts automatically and I don't have to get up to hit play.

I'm betting that Gin didn't understand a word of desi's gobbly gook, based of course on the fact that I don't understand a word of desi's gobbly gook. tongue

lol no I kinda sorta understood it..... but not really :p

basically, we use Netflix on the Wii or Xbox.
in the console settings, we go to the DNS screen thingy... then type in whatever # is currently being used (we have to google the proper American DNS #) and enter.

for the record - the boy does this. I just tell him to fix it Cool

I don't think it's as big as Netflix but they do have a lot of stuff and some different stuff. I wanted to watch Bosch (based on a book series I love). I got it on sale for $66 for the year (opposed to $99 regularly).

A couple of weeks ago they updated the software for the auto play which is the best. I use a HDMI coverter with my old phone and stream through my tv so I would have to get up ( :O) after every episode to select the next show and now I don't have to. If you have a lap cat you know how valuable that is tongue

yes! it started last Monday but I think they only release 1 epi a week so I'm waiting for all to air so I can use my free trial to binge them and check out what else they have. It's only $7.99/month so its not a big deal but I already have the other 2 so I don't know if I really need another service.

yes. and get free shipping on most things.

I also get emails for a free new release ebook book monthly - at least I think Prime is the reason why

another thing about Amazon is that you can download and watch later without an internet connection

I haven't tried that yet but that would be good for vacation if it doesn't take too long to DL

so do I - that may be my favorite of his

Stephen King's adaptations aren't usually that good but I'm still always compelled to check them out anyway.
