    I reserved a movie on blu-ray online, went to pick it up at a kiosk, and was charged instead of a credit being used (the box was checked for use credits and I have 4) for this beta trial thing. Does it take time to be applied or does it not count for blu-rays?

    You can upgrade to Blu-Rays, $9 a month. But they charge the full $9 when you upgrade, not the $1 difference.

    Yeah the beta free trial is only for DVD's, but like the above poster said there is a Blu-Ray option after the free trial for $9/mo.

    Their streaming titles are very limited right now...maybe 8000 titles. Right now it's chock full of older movies and B-titles.

    Hopefully they get more agreements with the studios.

    Yeah it sucks. It's not like blu-ray is new or just a couple years old. Playstation 3 was released in 2006...format war ended in 2008. It is now 2013. They could have at least offered 1 free blu-ray rental out of the beta trial. :D

    Does anyone know where there is a list of the streaming titles to view before subscribing?

    It all about $$$$$$$$$, just like CDs were going to reduce the cost of records because they can be mass produced.
