    Thumbs up Just What NZ Needs....Netflix!

    We get it here in the US....I go online and order a DVD from Netflix, and in about 2 business days, I get it in the mail to keep as long as I want for a single $9.95 USD montly fee.

    That's fine and I like the service..they even pay the postage both ways and include a handy mailer to make it thru the post office with no damages.

    Now..the NEW service coming out right about now....

    Simple...a computer-NOT looking video interface with your TV set and pretty much instant downloading of any movie in their library.

    You can read about it here...but the interest in this TV-download is to keep it a non-geek application for those type of people whose VCRs are still blinking "12:00" into eternity and they don't interface with this new-fangled stuff.

    Here's the link...don't drool on it.

    I got this outta a different post as I could not send youse guys the link to which I subscribe...I think....

    Yeah...I guess it's kinda a universal thing...but do youse guys get multiple mail deliveries like England?

    I hear-tell that they can send out a grocery order in the early post and have it delivered the same day by a later post.

    Yes but the NZ one start at NZ$18.00 for single movie rental / time where as Netflix starts at NZ$6.12 for single movie rental / time. I would subscribe to Netflix but not the money hungry NZ ones..

    NZ do pay more for some thing, that are cheaper in the US, but obviously we are a far smaller market. Dell computers, however who are a global company, charge a lot more to their NZ customers, than they do for the same product in the USA, even with our exchange rate being so high.
