Love for Vudu, but Netflix has me wondering

    Re: Love for Vudu, but Netflix has me wondering

    Originally posted by mebby View Post
    Since I have an HD Tivo I decided I would try out the free 2 week Netflix trial to see how I liked the instant streaming thing. Before I start, I will say this - I don't necessarily care if I get the ONE perfect box for serving all my needs. To me, this is what a good universal remote is for. I can VERY easily switch activities with my Harmony 890 remote so having one box or 10 boxes to serve my entertainment needs is not a factor for me.

    My overall takewarey so far is that it's a good supplement for Vudu. So far I've mainly used it to watch TV shows but I have added a few movies in there that were on my Vudu wishlist. Ironically I started watching one movie on Vudu and never got to finish it so now I can finish it on Netflix.

    I think I'll keep the service. BUT...

    It in no way is up to par with Vudu in terms of quality, and I mean this in several areas. Picture quality - not even close... but the interface is a big step down as well. On top of that you need to feed your "watch instantly" queue via computer. If I could simply browse the database with my remote it would be much better.

    But another area that I'm finding quite useful is that you can sort based on community ratings - something not yet available on Vudu.

    Another negative for Netflix through my Tivo - the interface can be slow (just like all aspects of the Tivo interface).

    A positive for Netflix - I found a 4 hour mofia movie that I'd NEVER rent on Vudu b/c I couldn't make myself sit and watch a movie that long in one sitting. I can turn this into a TV mini-series with Netflix and watch it over a week or more if I want to. In other words I feel like I have more freedom with the content.

    The TV content through Netflix is quite good as well. Vudu needs to bring more to the table here.

    I know I'm rambling, but all in all - it's a decent service and a solid supplement to Vudu but Vudu will still remain my primary source.

    I agree. I also have Tivo HD. Just upgraded from my old reg unit. Cable cards coming on Friday. I also have a harmony 880 so I can switch from one thing to another with ease. Not sure how much I will use Netflix on the Tivo because we tend to have movie nights and do finish a movie in one night.
    Now since Tivo has Netflix and will soon have Blockbuster, they should look into hooking up with VUDU. I have used Amazon Unbox through Tivo and like it, but Vudu wins hands down every time. They have everyone beat when it comes to quality. I hope they can stay in the game for a long time.
    I first got Tivo back in 2000 and many were saying it wouldn't last. I think they will be around for a long time too. I do think if Tivo and Vudu got together we would have one smokin box. We could then have VuTivo or TiVudu. Wouldn't that be cool?
