[Discuss] [Slightly OT] Streaming video services?

I use Netflix quite a lot.  For a while, I was just getting the DVD's
without the streaming, and I did miss the streaming.  Obviously, there
are problems:

    They're missing things (even on the DVD side) that they should have.

    They aren't ever going to give you current TV shows.

    You can't stream on Linux.  (I have a Blu-Ray player that has a
    netflix app, so that's how I do it.)

But I use it anyway, and miss it when I don't have it.   In general, it
doesn't look like the competition would replace it, although Amazon
streaming does have some things that Netflix doesn't, and will probably
improve fairly fast.

His idea of rehearsals was to hear one reading and say, 'Perfect,
let's go out for a beer'.
