Re: Netflix down a little
Me too! I started watching Netflix when I wanted to watch the whole Office series. After that, however, I barely used it. I definitely think it's more geared towards watching shows rather than movies. In my opinion.

As I am working away assessing the aftermath of #Brexit (and needless to say it is a shock), Mandela is playing on the background on yes, Netflix :)      The World is waking up to a different World on all fronts folks.

Re: Netflix down a little
I got hooked on Netflix when I didn't want to wait to get episodes of "Lost" on DVD, so liked their streaming option. I rarely watch it now though - and almost always for TV series or original content. Aside from documentaries, I don't remember the last time I watched an actual movie on there!

Re: Netflix down a little
@mpouraryan did you give up Amazon's services when you adopted Netflix, or do you subscribe to both?

Re: Netflix down a little
I may be the "exception" to the rule--I have had Amazon..and I finally decided to check out NetFlix--besides the "dual screen" and some of the original content, there is not much of a difference--Netflix has to innovate even further to stay relevant.

Re: Netflix down a little
@faryl - As someone who frequently downloads Amazon content - and obviously signal is a factor - Amazon downloading is really quick. And ridiculously convenient. I always struggled with keeping something on my phone to entertain my kids when we were in grocery stores. While some stores have good WiFi, others are dead zones. Now that I can download, I just keep a few of my kids favorite shows downloaded on my phone, and now I never have to worry about where I am. I know I can always offer them something to watch without killing my data with streaming, or worrying about a weak signal. It's FANTASTIC!

@Adi thanks for that. It sounds like they are doing a lot of things right in terms of giving customers what they want.

Re: Only the beginning
Didn't YouTube try to enter this space as well? It's interesting to see who's successful. Amazon's infrastructure makes it such a logical offering, it seemed almost more of a "we have nothing to lose" venture that's done really well. I'm kind of surprised Apple hasn't tried to step up iTunes offerings with some sort of monthly plan for streaming video.
