I also enjoyed IP Man, IP Man 2 is more action but lacks the storyline of IP Man.

Im a big fan of netflix; great time waster and is constantly improving the content.

I do however agree that movie wise its 1 out of 10 that are decent but 8 bucks a month is less then i spend on milk, and I get no entertainment value from milk.

I'm still hemming and hawing. I'm not impressed with what's available so far, but it seems to be a great deal. Eight bucks a month, as mentioned above, is cheap for some decent entertainment.

I'm a documentary whore and they have a great selection of docs.

No new movies? That's okay...these are the movies I've always wanted to see, but didn't want to waste my $6.00 at Blockbuster renting.

I opened the link on my iPhone, and got the US list.

Predator, Crash (the sexy one), Beastmaster (TV), Spawn, Blade, Office Space... lots of good older stuff on there now. Added some newer stuff like Bobby and The Illusionist lately as well.

I have an American account but am in Canada now and Xbox won't let you change your address on your system. When I try to sign up, it sends me to netflix.ca where they tell me that I must live in Canada to subscribe.

I created a Canadian profile but because it isn't a GOLD account, I can't join there either. No way am I buying another gold account to try out Netflix.

Is there a way to fix this or am I hooped?

Hmmm, I didn't try that but it seems others are saying xbox won't change it on the phone either.

At the bottom of the Canadian page when you get directed to Netflix.ca there is a little link for the US site.

I am not sure if this is the case on the XBOX but it is there on my regular internet browser.

When i tried to switch my xbox account from US to Canada I was told flat out no that it cannot be done and I would need to create a new Live account.

It was pretty ridiculous that they don't (or at least didn't) support this.

I am about to end my trial month of netflix. I think I will keep it a couple more months and see if I am watching it as much as I am now. The option to set a laptop or my wife's iphone to a show for the kids, if I am unwilling to surrender the TV, is nice. Once

It really chews up bandwidth though, I wonder if Shaw will bitch.

I'm sure that they'll keep an eye on it, but any action probably won't be due to bandwidth. It'll be to protect their own services (on demand, and cable TV itself) because people are becoming less reliant on traditional cable as everything goes internet based. Bandwidth will be given as a reason why they need to restrict/slow/etc. Netflix, which isn't completely baseless, but it is more about preserving their traditional services.

Shaw has typically been more flexible than Rogers, for example, when it comes to bandwidth. Rogers announced new bandwidth caps the day that Netflix was released in Canada, which kind of shows how they feel about the whole thing.

Tricky situation when the cable company is the internet company too.

Speaking of bandwidth, is there a way to gauge your bandwidth use with Shaw? I'm an occasional user of bandwidth-intensive things, but I'm not downloading gigs 24/7. It would just be interesting to see my usage.

"Up" is on Netflix. Pretty early to be released there.

There is a way to find it out, on the website, but I had to call and get it activated.

I tripled my normal bandwidth usage with adding netflix last month, and it bumped me just above my limit

Just out of curiosity, what happened when you went over? A polite warning, or something a little more?
