I'm loving streaming Netflix!

Do you have a Netflix account?  We've had an account for awhile but had recently been frustrated because we never seemed to have the movie on hand we really wanted to watch.  About a month ago we decided to try out the streaming movies through the (built-in) Wi-Fi on our Nintendo Wii, then we also tried using the built-in WiFi on the PS3.  For those who just have the older versions of the Xbox 360, you can buy the wireless WiFi card, it's just not built in the same way as with the Wii and the PS3.  The brand new Xbox does have built-in WiFi.  And yup, you guessed it, you can even stream on to the Apple iPad!

It was super easy to set up, we just had to order the special DVD from Netflix (at least a couple days before you plan on using it so that it has time to arrive in your mail).  The disk itself is free and only takes a couple minutes to set up, you certainly don't have to be tech-savvy to do it.  The menus are easy to navigate and the only drawback that I see is that there aren't nearly as many movies available to stream as watch by mail, but the selection is still impressive and the video quality is fantastic.

But we've certainly been enjoying it and I get a good laugh in every time I log in to the Netflix account and all my recommendations are filled with old school Super Mario cartoons (the kids love watching them on streaming Netflix).  

Have you tried streaming Netflix?

*This is a totally uncompensated/unrequested/un-pitched review.  Just me raving about things I think are awesome...

Our family just signed up on Netflix last a week and so far we are loving it:) Right now Netflix is offering a 1 month free trial.
