My parents have a streaming Netflix account and I "piggyback" on theirs. Not long after they started, my dad asked me if I knew how to delete the most recently watched movies. I asked him for his ipad to see if I could figure it out. It turns out that my dad likes watching more adult-oriented movies that have sexy women on the cover, and he didn't want my mom to be bugging him about it. I tried for a while and could never figure out how to get the most recently watched movies to disappear off the list.

So several weeks ago, I was having dinner at my parents home. After dinner, we were talking about Netflix and my mom made a joke about me watching a lot of "sexy movies" because she saw them on the recently watched list. (fwiw, I have never watched a sexy movie on Netflix) I looked at my dad and he was giving me an embarrassed smile, so I took the bullet for him by making a joke about "I watch those kinds of movies because of the great dialog". As I was leaving their house, my dad quietly told me, "Thanks." I told him, "Hey, I'm married too so I understand." It was kind of a cool bonding moment.

log_jammin: My issue is that Amazon Prime is about to lose all the MST3K episodes.

They'll get them back in the not-too-distant future.

The solution is obvious.

Someone needs to create a Meta-Streaming website. One website that you subscribe to and it offers you access to all the other streaming channels. They could offer bundles of channels, and maybe even have great introductory offers to get you to sign up...then jack up your rate by 393%.

Then, instead of tying up the broadband infrastructure, they could develop their own distribution network-say based on coax or satellite broadcasts.

TuteTibiImperes: I'd be OK with an increase in cost if it meant having access to everything, and quicker access to new release stuff.

You're the reason why networks keep nad-squeezing the cable companies for more money every year, all our cable bills are going up, and there is nothing on but "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Child".

frostus: frostus: Not really. I said movies I want to watch. I could care less about your queue.

Couldn't care less. Stupid work makes typos appear on my keyboard.

Makes you appear to be an asshole too, but something tells me that has nothing to do with work.

Netflix still gets my $8 a month, I will make every effort to legally obtain a service that should be available for a reasonable price.  Even if that service doest exist.

As for loss of movies, oh no....whatever shall normal people out there do without movies available to stream legally....

frostus: It's not like their streaming selection is all that great to start with.

As someone who has watched all of Blackadder and Futurama and most of Cheers and The Office (UK) through Netflix streaming, I declare you to be talking out of your ass.

A little warning would have been nice. The list of movies isn't coming up. Going to bed anyway. Dicks.
