Netflix arrived on our TV

Yesterday I installed the new Roku Netflix setop box. It was truly simple to setup – took not more than 3 minutes. The box comes without manual, just a 6 step fold-out brochure.

Watching movies / TV series really works. The picture quality is a bit compromised but there were no lags or pauses. Well done. I should mention that we have Verizon Fios at home – so I don’t know whether the experiences is as good on a slightly smaller pipe.

Having video on demand with great titles and TV shows available at $0 per view makes sense to me – we do have to pay the Netflix subscription though. As over time the DVD rental market will decline under the pressure from on demand streaming, Netflix is doing the right thing to start exploring this space and locking in its audience that they have built on the DVD-rental model.
