    Apple also has a ridiculous pricing scheme.

    I'm going with Netflix they had the greatest movie of all time for instant watch: Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus.

    Yeah I'll be making a final decision and support Netflix on this one in terms on quality and variation. New or not.

    My issue with iTunes "rentals" is that they are just that RENTALS....I don't want to be charged per movie or tv show!! Charge me a monthly subscription fee and i'm in...i never rent movies or shows from iTunes it's a rip off! You can rent movies for $1 a day now....COME ON MAN hahaha!

    Exactly. Launch a subscription and I'm in. With all of the "cloud" talk now a days Apple should be set up for this.

    Apple looks like is taking the Blockbuster plan. You pay for each and every rental...

    i love netflix, i watch 2 or 3 shows a day, that would cost so much on itunes, the streaming is the best part in my opinion, but it sucks that its older shows, nothing current
    You don't like the iPad because you don't have one!

    I watch a ton of episodes on NetFlix. Just signed up, not sure why I waited so long. So I got Hulu+ for new stuff and Netflix for other. Canceled cable because those two items are still cheaper than cable.
