Mark Malkoff's Netflix Challenge

(YouTube link)

Since you pay for Netflix by the month, how low can you bring the price-per-movie down by watching as many as you can? Mark Malkoff tried to find out, by devoting a month to the experiment. I don't see how he did it, because I couldn't find anywhere near that many movies I'd care to watch. There's a list of the films he saw at My Damn Channel. Link -Thanks, Mark!

I love Netflix's Instant selection. It's gotten me into a lot more subtitled movies that I wouldn't have chosen if I had to piece meal titles through the mail. Also, if a movie is bad, I stop watching and move to the next with zero guilt/remorse.

I've very very rarely gotten that error message marcus and my husband and I watch the instant contant almost every day (mostly cable tv shows since we don't have cable). Usually the times when it stops playing is b/c our internet is going wonky for whatever reason.
Anywho, love Netflix! Just wish they would get even more cable tv shows on there :D

Trust me, I know what it's like to be throttled by Netflix back when I rented DVDs through the mail.

I've been streaming for almost a year - and besides occasional sloppy resolution issues, I've very rarely been shut out. I'm guessing it may be your Internet Provider.

The content selection is mid-level - but 8 bucks a month? You can't beat that, especially when cable companies charge $60 for the "basic" package, and force you to watch commercials. Netflix is a great deal.

But how many times did he get the error message about a problem downloading this content (but try again later)? On our network, it pops up about half of the time. I figured they use it to restrict usage to a certain number of movies or shows per day.
