    Default Anyone have Netflix or Hulu Plus?

    Signed up for the Getflix free trial and was wondering if anyone used either Netflix or Hulu Plus and if they are worth it, what the ********* is like etc.

    We have both and love it! Getflix is good because you get all the different netflix versions (each country has some different content etc). I think we canceled foxtel after getting this.

    The ********* is pretty much instant for us, but we have good internet You'll need to have a fairly big plan if you plan on watching it often.

    We use it on the Apple TV (changed the setting to American).

    Eta, since we got it, about 5 other people we know have signed up!

    I was just looking at a Roku 3 and signing up for Netflix but I need to investigate more. It'll be better watching shows on the TV than the computer. I'm interested to read what others think too.

    Great, that's good to know. If you don't mind me asking have you had any problems paying with an Aussie credit card? I've read that sometimes it won't work. I have an unlimited plan so ********* is no problem.

    I use a HDMI cable from my laptop to the tv so I can watch anything on the tv.

    Nope, haven't had any problems

    I prefer Netflix because Hulu has ads, so if the same show is on both I will always watch it on netflix.
