If I stop something, they don't even let me go back to watching it! Seriously. If I try to go back to watching something or watch it a second time, it will play for 8 seconds and freeze up.

I have tried on multiple devices and it happens across devices.

It's not my internet ... I've had Netflix freeze up and then switch over to Amazon and watch the same thing just fine.

The resume feature works flawlessly across my Apple TV, iPad and PS3 Netflix apps. So if it's not your internet, it must be your devices. The apps give me the choice to resume play or start from the beginning.

Two BluRay players (a Samsung and a Magnavox), an iPad, an XBOX360, and multiple Kindles. Same result on all.

I've never had that issue on my Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 or Roku 3.

I've never had that problem. I am always able to resume. I have used a Samsung BluRay, Sharp smart TV, Rokus (HD, 2, and 3), D-Link streaming device, Galaxy 7, and multiple PCs. I can start on any one of them and resume on another.

Have you checked your Netflix settings to see if you have disabled this feature? If that's not the case, I don't know what to tell you.

Damnit I just bought Nymphomaniac!! Oh well, having a hard copy is probably good since it's not going to stay on Netflix forever.

Are Netflix streaming the fully uncut version? I must admit, it's gutsy on their part if they are.

According to the Netflix time, it's the cut version.

BTW, for those with VPN services, Netflix debuted this week in six European countries: Germany, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria and Luxembourg. My VPN provider has all 6 countries available

Are there any sites that catalog what is available in each country? If not, maybe we should start a Netflix Around the World thread where we can point out notable additions in different countries we monitor.

They have a filter that you can narrow down your results based on the regions.

Ubuntu Linux users no longer need to employ arcane workarounds to watch Netflix on their computers.

Instead, they can just head to Netflix’s website through Google’s Chrome browser to start streaming. Netflix is supported in Chrome 37, which runs on up-to-date Ubuntu installations of 12.04 LTS, 14.04 LTS or later.

Well, this is a huge get:

Netflix sees HBO’s standalone service, raises it Friends episodes
By Katie Rife @futureschlock Oct 15, 2014 12:51 PM

Refusing to be intimidated by HBO’s announcement of a standalone streaming service, Netflix has escalated the streaming conflict into an all-out war. Shortly after the HBO news hit the Internet this morning, Netflix sent out a press release trumpeting its acquisition of “all 10 seasons, 236 episodes and 83 hours” of Friends. “Could this BE any better?,” the press release asks, looking around expectantly with a big grin smeared across its face.

Sure, HBO has dragons, and John Oliver, and all the movies you kind of wanted to see last fall but couldn’t be bothered to go to the theater for, and depressing original documentaries about how fucked up the world is. But are these shows really your Friends? Do they know you like Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Phoebe, and Joey do? Will they be there for you when the rain starts to fall? Will they care enough to ask, “Are you still watching Friends?,” after you fall asleep on the couch, a half-eaten Tombstone pizza resting on your chest? Netflix thinks you already know the answer.

The complete series of Friends will be available for streaming on Netflix beginning January 1, 2015.

Is Netflix still the future? The "freshness" of Netflix's catalog is wearing thin. If it weren't for playing it in the background while working, I'd consider cancelling. But I like to flip between music and Netflix.

I still think that "streaming" is great. Even when paying Amazon to "rent" a few movies a week, you're still at $100-or-so per month. And you have access to thousands of films.

Right now, Netflix, Hulu and Amazon, together, can be used to create one really nice on-demand library of titles. Each has it's own quality issues. But I've never been too privy on that perfect presentation. And it's far cheaper than building a Blu-Ray collection that's going to be obsolete in a few years.

Since getting rid of my physical collection, I miss "commentaries" more than anything else.

That reminds me of the feature I'd like the most to be added to Netflix: a sort of shuffling jukebox. Say you can load up a separate queue from your main one with different TV seasons of different shows and it will shuffle episodes around. I don't know how much call there'd be for it or how tough it'd be to implement, but it'd be great for background noise with a little variety.

(Yeah, I miss my go-to background noise channel - TBS - since cutting the cord. Now it's old sitcoms on ME TV.)

It's one thing Hulu does right - randomly linking episodes together, makes it like watching TV.
