Last year there deliver service in Sacramento,Ca distribution centers was very poor. This just temperate 45% increase, I own subscribe once a year if that (unlimited 8 plan) and share the cost with my two neighbors. Only 10 of then are worth watching per year and if that.

"McCarthy credited the movie streaming feature of his company for the profits increase."

A big win for Microsoft Silverlight - the technology this is built upon.

Netflix is great. People need entertainment at a good price during tough times. And their 8.99/month package allowing 1 DVD at a time and unlimited online viewing is awesome. To hell with Blockbuster and their $5 rentals. I drop it off in the mailbox without having to walk 6 blocks and back to the nearest Blockbuster.

I've been averaging 2 DVD's only per month though with my viewing tardiness.

Let's see them buy decent servers for HD content streaming now.
Servers aren't the issue, bandwidth is. Top rate currently is 2.2Mbps from netflix. I find the quality is superior to that offered from Amazon unbox but not as good as say ABC's player.

Not quite. Silverlight is an option for watch it now, but you have to opt in to use it.

For Vista Media Center users there's a couple of excellent plug ins that let you do watch it now from with VMC.

Netflix gives me what I've always wanted at price I can afford.

I was a 3/mth (varied cost @ $17-$21) customer for years, then went to 1/mth+Roku ($8!) and never looked back. It's perfect for big screen CRT.
