Default Netflix vs Others

I currently have HBO, MAX, Starz..etc. I'm thinking about dropping the movie channels from Att and going with Netflix for more movie selections.

Would Netflix be the best? Opinions please.

Netflix is good, I had Hulu+ for a while, but didn't use it much. Also there is amazon prime which gets you free shipping as well as videos and movies. If you buy a lot from amazon, might be good for you.

After further review and since I am a more current movie watcher, I will stay with all the U-Verse movie channels and their "On Demand."
I guess too, mailing DVD's back and forth, would not fit my program, if had to use.

I might try the Free 30 day Netflix trial.

I thought you were looking for a streaming solution. For current releases I use Redbox. Cheap for one night rental.

For mailed discs, you will not find a better selection than Netflix. I've been with them since 2006 but was too stupid to buy their stock.
Redbox never has anything I want when I want it.

Netflix has never disappointed me.

NetFlix is fine and I subscribe. However, their movies have been around the block a few times (PPV on other sites). If you can justify Amazon Prime (free shipping, etc), they have free (to Prime subscribers) some movies and they also have PPV. IMO, HBO has moved on to original programming along with some of the other so-called movie channels. Yes, they have movies, but those movies have also been around the block.

IMO, HBO is a MUST have because of the original programming. That said, if you add up what a HBO and the other sites cost and devide that number by $6, that would give you an idea as to how many PPV movies you could watch at the net cost of zero compared to what you are paying for your movie packages.
