Does anyone here use hulu or netflicks instead of cable?

@rosborne979,
I'm sure it's on the Roku.

Sometimes I forget the account is in my name, and Wally does some late night watching.

I'll see where it says "Picks for Chai" and see movies like "College Girl Zombie Weekend" and wonder, "when did I watch something like that?"

netflix neck
May 26, 2014
Occurs in one's neck when binge-watching shows on a laptop set on an angle between you and another for four to fourteen hours. Involves stiffness in upper back, but is justified by TV-induced elation.

My lady and I woke up with killer Netflix neck after Orange is the New Black came out.

Having just entered the 21st Century by purchasing an iphone AND a Smart TV Sony Bravia in the same month, I now find myself staring at them and wondering if I am making full use of such gadgets.

Facetime is great on the phone, now we have offspring on the other side of the world, and being able to check emails whilst on the toilet in outer Mongolia is very handy, but it's the TV that seems to flummox me at the moment.

Sony instructions turned out to be non instructions as it just told me to press certain buttons on the remote so's to "discover" everything via the big screen, but that seems to be totally lacking in basic info as well.

So.....I'm having to find all this stuff out myself, through word of mouth with friends and, hopefully, tips and ideas via the wondrous people here on A2K.

To start, I will read up on this netflix thread and see if it's worth investigating further.
In the meantime, if any of you are accomplished Netflix (or other) users, would you mind awfully giving some sort of review here, now you know all the whys and wherefores?

Many thanks
A. Luddite.

I just bought an iPhone 2 days ago, and those are the exact words I used to a friend I texted on this new fangeled device.

I am still in awe that when you double tap the space bar while typing a text, you get a period.

I am announcing all these amazing discoveries to my Stp-dtr as I go along. She's like "yes yes dear, isn't that nice"

@chai2,
Ha! On Sunday, we had some facetime (however that works.....I think it's through whatsapp) with our son, who was sitting in the park near to his digs in Sydney.
He looked tanned and fit, and the birdsong surrounding him sounded ever so exotic, so much exoticness in fact that he had to shout to be heard above it all. Parrots and parakeets are all fine and dandy but they don't half make a din.
My old Nan, who was a mill girl in industrial Northern England when she was a lass, would have called me a "dafft aypurth" if I told her that I could talk face to face (for free or thereabouts) to someone on the other side of the world.

This afternoon I have been rigging up the sound bar and boom box (ooh! Get me!) on the contraption in the corner, and have just fitted the thing with a youtube app.
My first play was "here comes the sun" by the Beatles. Of course, I had to try out the volume. Bloody hell, it nearly took the windows out.

Perfect sound though. I'm a bit overawed by it all.

Tomorrow we try a blu ray 3D DVD, and at that point I may have an unintentional orgasm.

The wonders of modern science, eh?

@chai2,
Has anyone here watched the documentary Paul Williams: Still Alive?

Like many people, I very much appreciate Williams and his song writing talent.

In my opinion, Paul Kessler made it unbearable to watch.

I seriously wonder is Kessler is autistic. He was so out of touch Williams it was embarrassing.

For instance, watch minute 11:30 to 12:30.

UNbelieveable.



Kessler would also drop himself like a rock into the middle of private conversations Williams was having with his wife and agent. Conversation would stop, everyone looking at the camera Kessler was holding, as if to say "You really think you're going to record this?" Then, to cover up, extremely awkard meaningless conversation would ensue.

I watch network and basic cable shows on Hulu (on a one-day delay), PBS shows on the PBS website, and catch up on other cable shows on Netflix when the full seasons become available on disc (e.g. Mad Men). Works great if you don't mind a little delayed gratification.

I couldn't have said it better myself. Oh wait, I did:

When DSL finally became available in my hood I immediately bailed out of Dish Network. Always hated subsidizing all those ESPN channels I never watch.

Handwriting is on the wall for cable and Dish if they don't offer a la carte programming. There is a pile of set top boxes going back every time I go into the local UPS place.
