Torrents suck, Katz ftw.

This actually puts Netflix ahead of BitTorrent services, which goes to show the solution to piracy is to compete with it -- any sensible person will tell you the experience on Netflix is just easier and better than pirating.
It indeed is, hard to beat for $10 a month.

$8 in Canada. I feel like I'm stealing kind of, but somehow I'm not.

They said they're working on a cheaper streaming-only option for Americans, though.

It is easier and faster to stream over netflix than it is to download over torrent. At least with netflix, you can quickly find the movie and start playing it immediately. With torrent, you have to wait for the whole thing to download before you can play.

Yep, that's definitely a major plus.
I would support them/creators either way, though a lot of other people probably wouldn't, the cheap slags.

Yeah, Netflix's streaming service is great. I actually share my account with like 5 different friends who all use it constantly haha.

See, I don't have a problem paying for movies/music. However, living in Australia, it's either:

A: Incredibly expensive
B: Not available.

If this sort of thing launched in Australia, I would certainly sign up immediately. Until then though, I'll have to make do with torrents.

Well, it's not like you're not allowed to do that or anything. They prevent you from abusing it by limiting you to six different devices, and only so many devices can be on it at the same time, depending on your subscription type.

It would be the same if I were to rent a disc from them and invite friends over to watch it with me.

[link name=fury]/members/fury/" class="mention[/link], I see, didn't know about the limit -- that's good. I guess they're comfortable with that then.

It's not the same as renting a disc, though...this is infinitely more easy to share, especially so often. It's not like you'd rent thousands of discs all the time and let your friends over to watch whatever they wanted whenever.
