    Yea, I don't watch enough movies to use Netflix. It's more of a waste of my money. Good for some people though. I've been thinking of trying it again because my boyfriend likes to watch movies. I'd watch more if it was with someone. But I do have an xbox 360 that I could get movies to.

    IMO, Netflix on game consoles is the greatest thing since sliced bread. I've got 6 kids and they love it. Plus it's a bunch cheaper than paying for cable where I'm only going to watch a few channels anyways. Plus with the new deal they signed with disney, I'm pretty much paying $10 a month for the disney channel, which is what would be watched 90% of the time anyways.

    You have to have a Netflix subscription first. Then, if you have a Wii you request the Wii disc from Netflix that will install the crappo needed. Then, when you put movies in your instant queue on Netflix, it will show up on your Wii.

    You don't need a cd anymore. You can just download the netflix channel. Which is nice for us, since the kids kept tearing up my cd.
