Have a Sony smart TV so signed up for Quickflix and used the built in app to stream movies. Worked wonderfully. Quality was very good and there was no pauses for it to buffer on my 10Mbps ADSL connection. I thought sweet! This might be better than the illegal route. However when I go look for recent releases, as in movies that have come out on DVD, they just aren't there.
So I wonder, was I expecting too much? I sort of envisioned Quickflix to be a replacement for the video store but the selection just isn't there.
I have a Netflix account too but for starters it was a pain to set up as in, needed to set up my local DNS to use Unblock-US for the netflix domain, plus get a US paypal account and then finally set up the Netflix membership. The selection is mostly there but the quality is no where near what Quickflix is. Maybe there are better options? But at the end of the day I just went back to piratebay because I can download a 720p movie of my choosing. I really wanted to give the legal route a go but it is really limited.
What do you use? Was I really just expecting too much?
