    About bloody time too. Although the service is a bit poo now, so it's a bit too late in that respect.




    To get the US Netflix, you have to change your DNS to a US based one.
    These sites offer that service: [link=http://tunlr.net/">Tunlr (FREE), Unblock-Us., UnoDNS and

    It's taken long enough. Lovefilm have a bit of a monopoly now so good to get a fresh face in the market.

    Why's it poo now?
  • Deleted user 24 October 2011 13:23:37
    Hmm there could be a chance Breaking Bad S3 and S4 will be on it.

    I'd love to switch to a streaming only service if they offered tonnes of films/tv shows for a good monthly price.

    And why is Netflix so bad?
  • Deleted user 24 October 2011 13:28:36
    If this works seamlessly through the Xbox dashboard, and I can stream TV shows and movies for a reasonable monthly membership fee - then great.

    If I have to jump through hoops, and they limit it or otherwise gimp it (compared to the US version), which btw I fully expect them to do (seeing as how all US companies love to gimp their UK/Irl services just for fun) - then they can fuck off...

    I just wanna watch Breaking Bad Season 4 (or any other thing I want), when it airs in the US, on Netflix on the 360 at home in Irl, without any stupid fucking headaches. Seems reasonable, but I don't hold much hope.

    Breaking Bad is on the US one, no telling what scraps we'll be left with.

    They doubled the price of the subscription recently.

    This is only for online streaming though, right? They're not competing for DVDs through the post with Lovefilm?

    They do DVDs in the US, so I don't know.

    DVDs are pointless anyway.

    In Ireland, that would hardly be considered "competeing" anyway as the service is shite.

    A streaming service if it has it's shit together would be brilliant.

    They wont do current TV shows here as the channels will have the rights for them for a while.

    Yea, but some shows aren't even on TV here, would be cool if they were to make them available.

    Potential extra revenue stream for those less popular shows without the worry of it not fitting our market.

    Most decent show sare on one of the satellite channels, if there not they are't worth showing let alone bloody renting.
  • Deleted user 24 October 2011 14:06:44
    Is Breaking Bad even on TV in the UK/Ireland? I know Mad Men got picked up, and The Wire did after about 6 years of being on in the US. But I don't think anyone's got BB yet.

    I'd say what'll happen is it'll get picked up and then Netflix won't have the right to show it.

    They did a massive backpeddle on that, it's back to how it was again now.

    I think either FX or Five US have it, certainly seen it advertised around the 'lesser' channels.

    Thought Breaking Bad was on FX (run by Murdoch)

    Don't hold out hope for this to be any good. Most streaming rights are held by Sky over here. It's why LoveFilm has a poor selection of films to stream online

    If it's not HD they can get fucked anyway - the Love Film stuff seems to be DivX quality, which is bollocks.

    Only S1 of BB was on FX. Don't think S2-4 are due to be shown over here or even released on DVD

    Yeah, I can imagine the TV channels and providers have pretty much most of the good stuff making it rubbish. Who signs these exclusive deals, if they were all open to other providers, they would make much more money. TV execs still don't get it.

    What does that have to do with anything?

    And don't forget Sky have all the HBO rights for Anytime+, which will surely count for any kind of digital distribution, which narrows content availability....

    Just because they're on sky it doesn't really mean squat.

    It was an exclusive deal for Sky Atlantic and Anytime+ though, unless Murdoch's lawyers agreed an exclusivity agreement that you could drive a cart horse through.
