I just dumped the 1 DVD + BD unlimited and went with just the unlimited streaming. I’m constantly watching steaming anime series which just works so much better for me than waiting on disks, disks not being available at all, or ripping them to my computer. I’ll put the savings toward my high speed internet connection since it not only serves more purposes but also lets me watch streaming in HD which makes a huge difference on my big screen.

I may reinstate the disc rental from time-to-time once enough new BD movies come out I want to see or for game rentals since they day that they’re going to be doing that to, though I will look around for less expensive options for both.

The sooner we cancel our DVD rental plans, the sooner everything will be available on streaming. At least, that's how it works in Ideal Land.

I won't consider any streaming until the audio is improved.

We ditched the DVD+streaming and went with streaming only.

Just curious.


I ditched them altogether. My family was watching less and less DVDs and we decided after the price increase that we could just use the occasional pay per view on U-verse if we got the urge.

We don't have internet at home, so I was happy to save money by switching to 3 DVD + Blu-ray without streaming.

Same here, audio has to be improved before I get streaming again, or prices have to drop for places like VUDU. Also, my internet connection is a tad too slow, during peak hours.

Yeah, I knew that'd get your attention.

You can come to my house and use my FiOS. Maybe.
