Xbox live gold is currently 45.99 for 13 months at amazon. Don't forget to add that in when you decide if it's worth it. I'm curious is the accounts have to be in the same name.

They really need to improve the quantity and age of the movies they offer on play it now.

Netflix is working on adding more movies to the service. They put out a statement when the roku box came out that it is the studios holding them back.
Remember, there is nothing you can do to create more problems than keep a multi hundred millionaire from making another buck!

Probably the case. We've got about 20 movies in our queue, mostly fairly recent releases, and only 2 show the "play now" icon, and I think they are both indies.

Very cool. I wouldn't be surprised if Sony (PS3) teams up with Blockbuster for the sake of competition...assuming it would work.
While I doubt this would happen, it would certainly be cool since I already own a PS3 and am currently using Blockbuster (go back and forth between BB and Netflix).
