About 6 or so years ago, I had a Netflix subscription. I only used it during college to make copies of the Hercules: The Legendary Journeys for my friends and I. We were on a campy tv show kick.

Yesterday, however, I heard about the release of the Netflix iPhone app. Now, I’ve been watching from a distance all the things that Netflix has been doing to improve its services, instant queue, streaming to multimedia devices, all of that stuff. But, I came home from work yesterday and decided it might be worth my while to try it out for a few months at the 8.99$ price, for the instant streaming.

My conclusions thus far: freaking awesome. I think I came back to Netflix at a good time. When they first released their instant streaming capabilities, I know they didn’t have too many titles available to stream. Now, of course, with the passage of time they have tons of stuff available. I’ve already consumed some Jim Gaffigan, Tornado Valley, some Shark Week stuff, Star Trek: First contact, and I am currently watching Doctor Who (Chris Eccleston).

There is something to be said about instant availability of a lot of media. It makes you want to just sample and try all of it. I am loving streaming to my Xbox 360, especially the programming in HD. It’s just gorgeous even with streaming on my TV.

If you’ve been on the fence about Netflix, but have wanted to try out the instant streaming stuff, they have their free one month trial deal still going on. Since I was a returning customer, I only get two weeks. But, seeing as how satisfied I already am, I think I can justify a measly $8.99 a month now.
