    Favorite media content provider?

    Just wondering about what others out there use. Right now, I'm to broke to justify a premium subscription to anything, but I got a feeling going with one of the online services way cheaper than getting cable or satellite..

    I have netflix and it keeps me pretty occupied. I sometimes complain about their selection, but for $8 a month it's great. For me if there's just one show they have that I still want to watch it's worth it. They have the full runs of some good shows.. and I'm Dutch, so spending money isn't my forte, even if it is under $10. I tried just using the free sites like hulu for awhile and comcast on demand, but their content that is actually tolerable is few and far between. And of course to have on demand you already need comcast cable. I'm sure you could get your tv/movie fix by random free sites, but it's just so much easier having all of them in one place, being able to have a queue, having the site save your place if you stop the movie, etc.

    The library here is full of foreign films and weird stuff after the early birds show up and take all of the good stuff right when it shows up first thing in the morning. My wife used to go all the time, but she would always hit her limit of 3 feature films a week... but it was all weird. Sometimes it's good weird, sometimes... just weird. I mean, a subtitled Chinese movie about a rural wife suing a man for kicking her husband in the crotch, and traveling to the big city and going through all sorts of hoops to do so?

    We're Redbox people now... when we can get away with watching a movie.

    It's on life support- the Dish Network execs just haven't given the word to pull the plug yet, as they are still harvesting the organs that they wanted.

    The Blockbuster Express kiosks aren't part of the deal, as they are owned by NCR and are franchised operations. Betcha NCR would've never licensed the name if they knew Blockbuster was going belly up.

    Side note: I'm friends on fb with my former boss (the one that was with Blockbuster in some capacity for like 17 years and got nada severance). Recent status update stated that some job matching service/site 'matched' her to positions available at the last 3 remaining retail stores in the area and she sarcastically questioned why the Company was having a hard time filling those positions in our weak job market.
