And it's all kinds of awesome. Been streaming Futurama over 3G all afternoon.

This is definitely earning a spot on my first app page.

I would think they shouldn't have to if more people use the streaming rather than shipping movies. I stream almost exclusively. I only got the 1 at a time plan to have unlimited streaming.

Re: NetFlix "Watch Now / Watch Instantly" - Recommendations Thread

Saw the list of the nearly 1,000 new titles hitting the service in September. Blogged up some recommendations. Thought it might fit well here.

Netflix has picked up a number of new contracts recently for their streaming service, and as a result, over 1,000 new titles are being added to the service in September. Mostly Paramount and MGM catalog titles, the list (found here) looks like several of my DVD shelves in digital form. In addition to some high profile favorites like the Godfather, Star Trek and Indiana Jones franchises, here's what you should consider checking out.

New MST3K Titles
* Eegah
* The Killer Shrews
* The Wild World of Batwoman
* The Phantom Planet

Movies Made Better With Rifftrax
* Battlefield Earth
* Aeon Flux
* Over the Top
* Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Pure Cheese
* The Babysitter - This is an absolutely mind-numbing flick where everyone on the planet fantasizes about underage Alicia Silverstone, including the family dog. Yes, you read that right.
* Eye of the Tiger - Yes it's a totally absurd action flick starring Gary Busey. But it's also a fantastic piece of entertainment.
* Showgirls - It is as bad as you've heard, but oh so worth it.
* Youngblood
* Solarbabies
* Lambada
* Thrashin'
* Brenda Starr
* The Apple
* Steven Seagal: Lawman

Underrated Gems and Cult Classics
* Chasing Sleep - A little thriller no one has ever heard of starring Jeff Daniels. One of the best movies of the 2000s.
* Clifford - I might be the only person who actually liked this Martin Short-Charles Grodin comedy.
* Final - Under the radar sci-fi thriller starring Denis Leary.
* The 'Burbs - Tom Hanks' best comedy. Seriously.
* The Mini-Skirt Mob - I watched a LOT of biker movies recently. This was the only one remotely decent.
* Black Rain - No one ever talks about this Michael Douglas-Andy Garcia flick anymore, which is a shame because it seems to hold up well. Great soundtrack too.
* The Negotiator - Another true gem. Samuel L. Jackson and Kevin Spacey. Love this movie.
* Dead Again - Might be Branagh's best film. Just don't look at the DVD cover that spoils the damn ending.
* Nick of Time - 24 before there was 24.
* Dream Lover - Madchen Amick and James Spader in a romance thriller. Solid with a great score.
* Miracle Mile - Another great movie no one has ever seen. Anthony Edwards picks up a random phone and is told that the nuclear missiles are on their way.
* Hard Eight - Despite director Paul Thomas Anderson's insistence that this movie should be called Sidney, Hard Eight is a better title for his first film. It's pretty solid, except for one major plot point late in the film that makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. None. I mean, I seriously cannot figure out what one character was thinking.
* Top Secret!
* UHF
* Event Horizon
* The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai
* Miami Blues
* Bob Roberts

Hot Lesbian Action (if you don't have access to porn like me circa 1994)
* Bar Girls

Eric Roberts FTW
* Love, Cheat & Steal - This one isn't even on DVD. A tight, made for cable, 90s thriller co-starring John Lithgow and Madchen Amick.
* Runaway Train
* Star 80

Godzilla! et al.
* Godzilla's Revenge
* The Terror of Mechagodzilla
* Ghidorah: The Three Headed Monster
* Rodan
* War of the Gargantuas

And Netflix Streaming just got even more awesome. The Godfather series, Indiana Jones, and even Friday the 13th and Child's Play for some cheese factor. They even added 'The Universe' TV series, which I had been thinking about buying. No need for that now!

An awesome amount of catalogue titles posted today. I added a few to my queue. Whether or not I have time to watch most of them is another story.

Is it possible for you to watch instantly from 2 different devices at the same time? For example, Say I'm watching Family Guy on my pc while my brother is watching Up on his Wii Netflix?

I've heard people say it's related to your plan. If you have the 1 DVD out plan you can stream to one device whereas the 2 DVD plan allows for 2 streams -- simultaneously, if needed.

Netflix pretty much only adds catalogue titles to their Instant Watch, especially for TV shows. Recently they just added some Warner TV titles of already cancelled shows like Nip/Tuck and Terminator The Sarah Connor Chronicles. I believe Grey's Anatomy season 6 will be coming out shortly. They have some catalogue ABC TV titles as well.

How hard is it to make sure the episode descriptions and titles actually matchup with what you're watching? I've been watching Reno 911! and the episode descriptions have been off almost every single time.

I had this happen today watching Family Guy and Charles in Charge season 3.

On Netflix can you stream Disney movies and WB Archive burn on demand releases?

There are some Pixar movies streaming. None of the Warner Archive films as far as I know. MGM has dumped pretty much their entire Midnight Movies catalog in there, including a few never on American DVD.

I was surprised to find "Experiment in Terror" available for streaming (and in HD) since it has been out of print on DVD for quite a while.
