Looks like Playstation has joined up with netflix which is kind of an interesting move
I'm not entirely sure how it works because Ive never used netflix at all but this is what I see so far.
Considering the cost of digital cable/satellite and local dvd rentals this could actually be a nice cheap setup for those who watch alot of movies/TV and already own a ps3. Could possibly save enough money to pay for the console itself overtime.
We all are paying for internet anyways so additional cost to stream is 0.. Streaming your TV shows to your TV would be nice instead of waiting for it to come on at whatever time. You could possibly cut your cable bill down to nothing
I do this using torrents for free anyways
but still it would be nice to watch em on my tv without any hassle like burning, transfering to the ps3, or hooking up my pc to the tv.
If your renting more then 2-3 dvd's a month locally well the price of netflix seems to be fairly cheap so you could save money again by streaming them. With the added bonus of being able to get the rental dvd in the mail if what you want to watch is not being streamed ^^ Again I torrent for free
Looks like this can be done with a pc also but most people don't want to wire a pc to there tv for this as it is kinda problematic, Buying a capable video card/long cables to run from pc to tv, Not to mention keeping the pc near the tv or having to run these cables somewhere. Cost of a card/cables well might as well up the ante and get a gaming console to boot. And really it could pay for the console if you quit paying for digital cable so free ps3 anyone? Also selling capable blue ray players which like ps3 would work also.
Is it just me or am I missing the catch here? Cutting a 100$ digital cable bill down to about 10$ seems to good to be true? lol hell even dropping to full basic cable would save some.
No live sports? Big deal, I don't watch em
Someone please tell me where the catch is? A setup like that if it holds true could be good enough to pull me off torrent's as far as movies/tv go, Ive gotten so used to the convenience of being able to watch whatever I want on torrents that even 100% full digital cable is crap.
Just thought I would share and get input
