I posted back in April that I had my Netflix account put on hold until I decided if I wanted to continue paying for the service. By putting the account on hold, I was still able to continue to have access to the website and my movie queue. I was also able to continue to find new movies but I would not be charged the monthly fee.
I've since decided that I will go ahead and cancel the Netflix account and sign up for Blockbuster Online. I don't go to the movie theater for numerous reasons; mainly, I like to be able to stop the movie when I want and replay a scene if I want to see it again. There are alot of movies out now that I want to watch and it is not cost effective to rent them one-by-one from the video store. Blockbuster Online turned out to be the best choice for me since they offer the option of returning the movies to a store and renting additional movies on the spot for no additional charge. I have a Blockbuster store about two miles from my house so this option works out great. Right now, they are offering 50% off of your first month if you sign up through this link.
I signed up this past weekend so my first set of movies should be arriving today. Hopefully, when I get home tonight, I'll have a couple of movies to watch.
For anyone considering getting rid of cable or satellite, this may just be an excellent alternative for your entertainment.
