I'm not on facebook :dance: and I got the free trial when Netflix first launched...I clicked on the link that said "register with email" or something like thatPaul Hobbs said:If you sign up with a facebook login the there is a free trial offer.
I was talking about what i thought about the service myself,maybe you need to read my disclaimer Joe!!!!!. :wall:Joe Cox said:Presumptious bit of Netflix defending from Mr. SonyCentre! Wonder what affect it will have on Sony's own Video Unlimited service...
Netflix claim they have thousands of films,which they have - just over two thousand as I recall.It might sound a lot,but it isn't.In fact,five thousand isn't that many when you spread it out over the twenty year period their stuff seemed to cover especially as it includes TV series and tries to cover everything from blockbuster to indie to world.I'm not saying we'd seen everything they have to offer, just that we'd already seen everything we wanted to see that they had to offer.Surely,this kind of online/on demand thing needs either a fair ammount of relatively new product or a massive back catalogue.Netflix doesn't seem to have either.I guess it's okay if you haven't got a pvr and can't skip through the ads but hanker to see all those films from the last twenty years that they show on commercial TV or for one reason or another you've missed an early series of a show,but I suspect most people will have watched everything they want to see within a couple of months.Isn't that why FilmFour became a free to air channel and TCM is always bundled in with other channels?It's a good idea,just a crap product.Paul Hobbs said:I was pretty glowing about Netflix at first, but I expected the content to change over time. I had it for two months and watched everything I wanted to (don't watch much tv so it took a while to work though breaking bad etc). But then I ran out of stuff to watch so I canceled it.
The thing that really pissed me off, I canceled it a week in to my billing period and they cut the service off instantly. They said If I wanted to keep the remaining 3 ish weeks I would have to cancel it in three weeks. I canceled there and then because I knew I would forget.
