I think they need to take the 'Netflix Inside' approach embed the ability to stream HD movies directly inside HDTVs or other settop boxes/360s/ps3/wii/hddvd players. I personally don't want to spend a dime on a stupid settop box.

Another vote for a Mac client before a separate box.

When complaining about the list of quality movies, this is actually the studios' fault, as they long ago made long-term output deals with the cable movie channels that limit their ability to explore VOD options with those titles. These output deals start to expire in 2009 and 2010, in general. At that time, the flood of titles will include the things that make your mouth water. But this is the state of affairs and a big hindrance.

Ever hear of Unbox on Amazon.com? Works with PCs AND Tivos connected to broadband. They have a decent catalog and you can buy or rent.
Maybe when they get up to HD w/ 5.1 I'll get an HD Tivo, but this works for now and it does NOT require any continuing fees (other than the $12.95 for Tivo service itself) I prefer to pay as I go, rather than install another leak in my bank account. Go to tivo.com to get the current details. (No, I don't work for them)

@ Willie Lum Lum,

In regard to their online Watch Instantly catalog, I'm not "blaming" poor movie choices on Netflix per se - I know the studios have to give permission to Netflix, as well. But regardless of the reasons why the selection stinks, it is what it is. And what I believe about the STB, the movie selection, and it's success, still stands.

They're going to have to make the hardware excellent and they're going to have to offer great movies, otherwise, people won't be interested.

And no, I won't buy one the second it comes out. I'm not fickle and impulsive. I say what I mean and mean what I say, and I stick by it. Besides, I already outlined what it would take for me to buy one, and apart from that, I'll just stick with the DVD's.

Ha!

Mac fanboys. Apple will not exactly endorse a Mac version when it's still trying to hock Apple TV. If apple offered a subscription service and allowed me to run ATV without a computer - Done. Same goes for Netflix - assuming they both offer solid content. I'd love to get an old fashioned antenna for my HDTV to watch the small amount of sporting events I watch and ditch the cable companies forever.

I think this is great. There was a comment about about all the crap movies that are offered. I disagree. They are not main stream, but they are all the movies in the middle of the store that are not rented much. There are a ton of great movies on demand. No, not the brand new ones, but many of the greats! I'm very excited, and even more excited that it's coming around 200. One guy said 150 would be his top, well I think the extra 50 would be worth it. LG is a good responsible company that is know, now, for quality. The first launch should be pretty sweet. Consecutive companies will be awesome.

Go NetFlix!

If you're in uncomfortable position and have no cash to go out from that point, you will have to take the mortgage loans. Just because it would help you definitely. I take student loan every single year and feel great just because of it.
