    I've never tried Netflix, but I have Huluplus. It's okay but honestly I don't watch it very much. When i first got it, it was mainly because it had a lot of old Japanese movies that I wanted to watch, but since making my way through most of those, it doesn't seem like Hulu adds new ones very often. I have enjoyed watching some shows though. It's only 9 bucks a month so for now I'm content to keep it, but in the long term I might drop it. The ads are really annoying. Especially because it will be the same four or five again and again.

    My Comcast bill just rose to $191/month. Tomorrow I'm downgrading to Comcast Internet Plus, which includes basic and HBO for $66/month. Also, we will be subscribing to Netflix $9/month, HuluPlus $8/month, MLB.TV $25/month, and NFL Audio Pass $30/year, and buying a Roku 3. Including $25/month for landline I will be cutting costs from $191 per month to $110 per month and being able to watch every baseball game I want and listen to every football game that isn't televised.

    For some reason I remembered this thread and went back to find my post in it. Heh.

    We finally reached our patience limit on over-the-air antenna TV (yes free, yes HD) that comes in perfectly when it comes in, but freezes and pixelates too often (at our house, anyway), and the limited channels. We also got tired of the seemingly stalled out selection on Netflix streaming. Yes, it's only $8 a month, but we reached a point where we'd run out of stuff to watch. We did benefit from having Netflix for a few years (such as watching all of Breaking Bad and some movies that we missed and forgot about), but it got to a point where we realized we were either not watching or just watching stuff because it was there; it had even gotten that way for our kids. And with Netflix streaming, you almost have to go in with an open mind... you rarely succeed in finding something that you actively search for. So after years away from paying for TV service, we now have U-verse (and love it). Cancelled Netflix the same day we put away the antennas. :p

    Yes, this is almost a year later, but even though I kind of understood a little bit of this already, this explanation is very helpful, and made things a lot clearer.

    NETFLIX BUYING MILLARWORLD OPENS THE DOOR TO A NEW COMIC CINEMATIC UNIVERSE

    I really happy about this news because I have been a big fan of Millar's word and I've been really looking forward to a live action adaptation of Nemesis, which is a story of a Batman type of character being a bad guy. Superior is pretty much a mashup of Shazam and Superman and probably Millar's most heartfelt story. Supercrooks is a great "Oceans 11" type of story. I have no doubt that Netflix will adapt these stories.
