I was a netflix customer and will be again once the World Series is over but I don't find the streaming to be a great viewing experience. I transfered the pic to my big screen via a HDMI cable and the picture still wasn't very good. Its fine for laptops but really suffers when put on the big screen. Is this fixed if you view thru the Wii or thru a Wifi connection on a blu ray player? If not I think people will grow tired of streaming unless pic quality is improved when put up on the big screen.
I tried the same with HBOGO even which is HD vs HDMI cable. When it got scaled to my 27" LCD the picture quality was pretty bad as well as latency. How many of you on football sunday want to do this instead of watching on your big screen. NFLX may have plenty of movies but they dont have live sports and I refuse to go backwards to VCR quality after investing in HD. There will always be a market however for streaming on laptops & game systems for sure.
They said they are heavily into streaming. But that mail order is still available. They want to be known as a streamer more than a mail order company. I also read that streaming is 60% and mail order ='s 40%. SDo still a good amount of mail order going on. Personaly they need to get the streaming down to big screen as you all say. Till then they still need mail order.
I see what you mean though. But like everyone. Protection of ones position whether it be short or long is the main picture.
I have directv as well but they are starting to get awfully expensive with all the little back charges.
I had an issue with the streamed picture also. I fixed it by getting 6Mb from my internet connection provider. I have discussed this with others, and we have concluded 1Mg down is not enough, 3Mg down is ok for Ricu, 6Mg is needed for high def. I use a blue ray player, the WII is not even HD.
I would like to have opinion from the user of streaming video/movies regarding the quality of audio effects - can we enjoy the 5.1 surround sound effects as like watching DVD???
Thank you for response.
I am on free trial and finding same experince as you but I think the quality of picture has more to do with our internet service in how much bandwidth they can or will allow. This is a big problem it seems everyone is ignoring, the fact nflx has no control at the user end as far as quality of picture.
