netflix in the uk
show user profile  STRAT
just a quick question or 2 for those who've subscribed to netflix in the uk -

1) what kind of UK content do you get right now? is it like watching 'bbc iplayer' or 'dave'? if not, what is it like?

2) what range of movies do you get, and how new are they?

3) are you impressed so far or has it still a way to come?

i'm certainly not into any american tv shows. none. so i'd be interested to know what UK value it offers me that my current sky system doesnt.

look on the bleedin' website. they list what they've got.

nothing "company" about that.

@anyone using it - just in case strat's right - is there anything else they don't show potential customers.

there's a one month free trial anyhow.

here, a link, just 4 u : click 4 their sh1t

i've obviously looked on the web site. i can see the content like the next man. perhaps my question aren't worded correctly.

there's usually a lot more to using a service than the website's schpeal.

Quality has been much better for me than Lovefilm/iPlayer/etc. so far, though - I grabbed a free trial and finally watched through Breaking Bad.

But yeah, not a huge amount of stuff yet - mostly films from before 2009 and some random 'classics'. Dunno how it compares to your full sky package, i really don't watch tv usually.

I wasn't that impressed really, but neither was I taken aback by any of the other "on demand" services like 4OD, ITV player, BBC iPlayer, Lovefilm or Mubi (the worst of them all?). I've got all of them on my PS3, but I rarely use any of them.

I for one can say with confidence that Lovefilm is a waste of money, leave it alone. You might get the odd, slightly interesting film, but most of them are the obvious films that everybody has seen (except people that haven't owned a TV since they were born), and other movies that never touched the silver screen and went straight to DVD (or VHS LOL). The ONLY redeeming feature about Lovefilm (and not redeeming enough to pay for it), is that you can catch the odd Japanese/Chinese/Korean movie if your lucky, and some of them are great, like Battle Royale, Ichi the Killer, Thirst, a whole bunch of Yakuza/Triad movies, and the classic adult manga movies that used to come on Channel 4 about 10 years ago on friday nights.

I think the UK has some great TV, ESPECIALLY its documentaries and comedies. Stuff like Red Dwarf (worldwide following, cult classic), The Young Ones (ditto), The IT crowd (pretty f*cking funny), Darkplace (intentionally SO bad, its funny). Documentaries like BBC Horizon, Jim Al Khalili's stuff, Ross Kemp on Gangs, Macintyres "expose" documentaries etc. I find a lot of modern US TV pretty naff too (much like UK lol), but some of it is great, like the X-files and.... oh wait, thats it. Nah theres a lot more than that really lol.

Oh wait, this thread was about Netflix HAHA.
