Arrow Netflix Has More Subs Than Cable TV

"The cable industry’s top operators (Comcast, Time Warner, Charter, etc.) ended the first quarter (March 31) with about 48.6 million combined subs, according to Leichtman Research Group. That’s nearly 5% lower than Netflix’s reported domestic streaming sub count of 50.8 million."

We could save more and enjoy more with Netflix. I rely it for entertainment purposes and already cut my cable.

I enjoy Netflix more. It's cheaper and more entertaining. I even cut my cable already because it's less useful for me.

Not really...I have 2 free Netflix accounts that were given to me because of promotions.

I have never used either.

Default NetFlix Audio

Are Netflix movies broadcast in DD, 5.1? From my TV, I have an optical cable going into my Denon AV to send sound to my 5 speakers.

My concern is, I don't want to watch a movie and not have DD sound.

Is there someone that can fill me in? When looking at the movie titles and description, it doesn't say if in DD or any type of sound. I don't want to subscribe and not have DD.

I answered my own question, I went into Roku settings and changed the audio setting to Dolby/DTS. The movies I have watched on Roku, the sound is DD Surround to all 5 speakers. I would suspect that Netflix movies..etc would be in DD too.

I really like having ROKU as there are free movies with some other streamers with free movies. Other free content too and downloading from our U-Verse internet, is FAST with the 45Mbps avg speed.

I'm not surprised. The PQ blows Cable and Satellite out of the water. I love that Netflix is now putting most of their own content in 4K, HDR 10 and Dolby Vision. Even stuff that just has the HD logo, not 4K or HDR blows my Comcast feed away. It's way less compressed.
