No one I know uses Blockbuster online or otherwise . Netflix is the way to go with much more dvd and online content than BB at much more affordable prices . Even the cheapest Netflix subscription gives access to all online content and you can watch them as many times as you want for no additional charge . When most Netflix online content is in HD , Blockbuster will be out of business . The closing of many BB stores is just the beginning of the end for them .

I love my Netflix streaming movies. I have the $9 a month plan - one movie at a time in my mail, and as many as I want streamed to my HDTV. What I really like is their library of older movies that I haven't seen, or haven't seen in years. :banana:

only reason i ask about BB is because it already had a widget available on my samsung, that and amazon, how do bring a netflix widget to the samsung??

You cannot unless an upgrade to the TV's firmware provides that service.

I actually think using another device (i.e. BD player, media server, etc) instead of the current HDTVs is a better choice for these services since then you have some local storage to increase the buffer, and usually the PQ.
