    I quit Netflix because they doubled the bill here in the US. I have AOD, which is better IMHO.

    I watched Inside Job a few days. Great documentary about the Financial crisis of the last few years.

    It's a terrific film, you can't help but feel furious watching at the insane levels of greed which caused it.

    I have to say the docs are worth the 8 bucks on their own. Last two I watched were Brother's Keeper and Winter Soldier. Solid.

    Lots of direct-to-video "sequels". Titanic 2 immediately comes to mind.

    Yeah, my wife just signed us up on Friday for NetFlix. The content is better than I thought it would be. Good selection of both movies and TV shows, although it still is missing most brand new releases, but what can you expect for like $10 per month.

    The 1981 one about the National Guard fighting the locals? Or one of the other three listed in IMDB that I'd never heard of?

    I can tell you that Netflix looks a lot better on Bell versus Rogers.

    Rogers "We upgraded our capacity for Netflix traffic right after this survey." LOL!

    To be honest, I've never had streaming issues with Netflix via Rogers. But, they certainly got owned by Bell in that survey.

    Yeah...Rogers also made some excuses, blaming Netflix for some of the problem: http://www.cbc.ca/news/technology/rogers-explains-why-it-came-last-in-netflix-rankings-1.2644363

    Rogers has always been the worst for throttling.
