      Confirmed to be working on PS3 however, audio defaults to Spanish and some titles do not have the options to change to English.

      Latest titles may not be available to our region also.

      5.1 English native audio streams appear to not be available either.

      Subtitles are manditory in Spanish/other non English

      HD/High works fine on a Flow 24 meg connection.


      It looks like we've been carded as a Spanish speaking country again.

      Not for a videophile but ok for the average person that does not care.

      After you select a movie you should see an option saying Subtitles and Language.

      Select that and choose the english stream.

      This is not available for all movies though.

      It would seem that Netflix did not do their research

      sorry to burst the bubble...starz is ending it's contract with netflix
      http://money.cnn.com/2011/09/01/technology/netflix_starz/index.htm

      "NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Netflix's streaming content catalog is about to take a big hit: Starz said late Thursday that it has ended contract renewal negotiations and will pull its movies and TV shows from Netflix early next year.
      Netflix stock fell almost 9%, to $212.39 per share, in early trading Friday morning following Starz' announcement.
      Netflix tried to downplay the effect the cancelled contract will have on its streaming catalog."

      Netflix also raised their rates effective September 1st. I cancelled my netflix account because, besides the starz movies, the streaming selection was pretty crappy, sometimes with horrible quality. I switched back to blockbuster. No streaming movies, but cheaper

      selections seem a bit dated 2-3 years old with exception of made for TV movies which have already been on TV, but then I suppose this would replace movie channels on cable or possibly cable alltogether great if you have bandwidth to spare and not using it to illegally download newer movies or software, play games online, do work, etc

      With respect to their bandwidth or the fact that both Blink and FLOW are both also television providers? I don't think bandwidth is much of a problem anymore and I don't really see Netflix competing with the television providers. Netflix is a subscription movie service while I think the vast majority of customers really also want access to premiering television series, news outlets and talk shows which services like Netflix fall short on.
      The patience of this member has run thin on the anarchists, the despisers of progress, the bearers of prejudice that run unimpeded on this forum.
      End.
