    Yay, I guess. I don't use Netflix much though since I can just "find" movies on the internet.

    Yes! I can't wait. Finally, a good streaming movie service up here in the North!

    It's Netflix in general.
    The service is coming here.

    DVD's don't matter too me. Streaming is much better. I have a decent enough connection (10Mbps).

    That's still Netflix.
    The only difference is the DVD part won't be here.

    Upon second thought, this would be useless.
    The caps we get here in Canada would prevent us from seeing a lot of movies.

    Indeed; the bandwidth limits most Canadian ISPs (the most widely-used Sympatico plans are 2GB or 25GB respectively, I think) makes this useless.

    Also, too little too late, IMO. Either they launch things like this in the US and Canada simultaneously, or most Canadians could care less. I still prefer Blu-Ray or DVD personally, and there are two rental stores pretty nearby which I can walk to that, between the two of them, have virtually every movie from every country and every decdade that's ever been made available on DVD.

    Netflix can GTFO.
