    I don't download movies because there are not any really worth going through all that trouble for. This protection scheme will not help Big Content. Only changing their business model will help them survive.

    I am fine paying Netflix $8.95 a month. If I time it correctly and watch the movie the day I get it and return it the next day in the mail, I can get 2 movies a week. Pretty good deal if you ask me.

    Not sure how they can check the torrent to a spreadsheet. They can't actually be checking the file name itself.

    Netflix is what I also use. It's still a great deal even after being dissed by Warner Brothers. That is a sad state of affairs. If they want you to buy the movie instead of renting then they need to work on their pricing first. I hate paying for a bad movie, which I have done more then once, and that's why I like to rent first. If it's really good I'll buy it. (used or at a discount)

    Several friends of mine have cut the cable and dish, they use Netflix online to view their movies, also sites like Hulu.

    $8.99 a month is a bargain.

    I have netflix as well and have 0 complaints with it, only thing i wish was that the ENTIRE library could be availble for instant streaming, i dont know, something with me waiting for a movie bugs me. Yes we get the weekly dvds in the mail but i atcually prefer the live streaming, now if netflix would just post their entire library to streaming id be completely sold.
