So was wondering what's your go to for getting movies, new releases to old classics?
Your cable/internet provider, Netflix, Red Box, or???
I'll never be one to watch a movie or program on my computer or phone, TV only. Please clue me in on the best options for that.

Amazon instant video on demand as well. I love the option of renting a new release from the comfort of my couch. I have Netflix as well although it works fine for me. Did you try contacting Netflix to see if the glitch was on their end?

They have ebooks you can download while being comfy at home as well.

Hey, you're in Boston. Somerville Theater is $6 and they have beer on tap and the crowd is great and you've got the Museum of Bad Art in the basement. Why stay home?ejvyas wrote:Following preference:
1. Public Library - I put it on hold as soon as I see the ratings and hear good things about the movie. My library is affiliated to 36 public libraries around and they get movies as soon as they are on DVD/ BD.
2. Redbox - I have loads of free codes available + get 1-2 free per month from their SMS
3. Theatre - Sometimes I go to the theatre (1st show in the morning $6)
