    Love these lists. Would be cool to know if anything is new on Amazon Prime for free streaming (have a separate list? Or maybe you’ve done this and I’m not paying attention).

    Certainly not overwhelmed by the “newly” available choices. Terminator? What are they thinking?

    70% of the available streaming movie content is terrible. Unless they can start getting some better movies, the Blu ray will be around for a while. An Amazon Prime list would be great.

      Thanks David – We’ll look into getting Amazon Prime included in the list.

    As a footnote to Mad Men: As a result of the Lionsgate Home Entertainment deal, not only is Season One available, but *all* four seasons of Mad Men are available on Netflix. They might be classified under Season 1, but when you click on it you will see all 52 episodes (or so.) Love it!

  • Larry Davis

    Would love to watch something on Hulu. . . If only it didn’t crash or hang the box all the time. I should just be patient, I’ve only been waiting for a fix since October. At least users of the new models get updates for the constant crashing.

    • http://roku.com Douglas

      Larry, sorry to hear Hulu crashes on you. Obviously, that’s not something we like to see. Have you tried contacting support? http://suppport.roku.com, sometimes there are causes outside of the player that can wreak havoc on streaming.

      • Larry Davis

        I’ve been in contact numerous times since November with Jon and Shawn. Roku keeps promising a fix yet has never delivered. And Roku keeps blaming Hulu. But Hulu uses APIs made available by Roku. The new models have received 3 or 4 updates because they were terribly unstable. Yet my box still doesn’t work and doesn’t get updates as the focus is on the new models.

        And it’s not something outside the player. Just admit you have a buggy product and fix it.

        Hulu + works great on XDS. My Netflix online hours are coming down considerably.
