Netflix can now be viewed on Wii, PS3 and XBox 360. And, I'm guessing PC

I'll check it out for the free month sometime to see what the fuss is about. Hope my bandwidth can handle it

That it does. :D Saw a few episodes of Breaking Bad and Gurren Lagann yesterday. It's supposedly not as good as Netflix USA but it sure is better than RTÉ or most of the other Irish & British freeview stations. Heck it's got Arrested Development & Army of Darkness on it, I don't need much else (It could do with Evil Dead 2 and more John Carpenter films IMO).

So I guess the connection isn't too bad down your direction?

Not forgetting they're the ones who are bringing Arrested Development back. If they were to bring Firefly back as well, I would definitely join. :)

They are!!! :o

Yeah got a pretty decent connection with Permanet. The streaming stopped twice during Breaking Bad due to buffering but it was fine today while watching Young Guns.

Funny watching the film, there's this scene in the middle of it where the main characters take Peyote and start tripping out and Charlie Sheen is the only one who refuses to take the drugs. :lol:

Ha! I have to laugh at the fact you've watched so much on it and it's only available a couple days. Guess you're trying to get through everything in the month. :)

By bringing AD back, you mean reruns?
I got the boxset of that for Christmas and engorged myself over a weekend. :pop:

Been hearing about Netflix for ages from the Americans. Be interesting to see how this works out.

Will be interesting to see what figures it gets when back, considering how much people have called for it to return. Just hope they haven't gotten lazy over the years.

Can anyone tell me if Check season 2 is on Netflix? It pisses me off that they don't list their series without logging in. :twisted:

Check?? Or is it Chuck season 2? If you mean the latter then no. I do know it's an episode or two into the season on one of Channel 5's other channels.
