play next

I grow weary of having to stop my movie or show, walk down the hall to play the next episode of a kid's show every 20 minutes! Every other gaming console I have experienced plays the next episode except the Wii.

Why can't it load?

So I just got Netflix in my bedroom and I want to watch stuff, but whenever I play a title (Doesn't matter which title) it says: "We're having trouble playing this title right now. Please try again later or select a different title.". Someone please tell me how to fix this, I really want to watch TV and with this happening, I have a big dinosaur TV in my room for nothing. ._.

I CAN'T FIND ANY WORKOUTS!!! There should be a playlist for them! I selected on preferences to get all the workout vids, but none show up on the Wii. There should be a playlist for them just like documentaries, cartoons, action, etc.

Equalize Platforms

We have a Wii, a PS3, a XBox 360, and a Blu Ray and I've found sometimes we have to search all four devices to get a certain movie or show to come up. Why not offer the same content on all platforms? If I search a movie on the PS3 and it says not available, why does it come up on the Wii and XBox? Netflix is ripping off users who use only one streaming platform.

I love it... Why is everyone being a big crybaby about the little things??? People do not appreciate the things that they have in todays world... wow.

We have had netflix for a couple of years now. Sometimes it loads the movie once and will never have to reload when other times like today it loads every few minutes. It's very frustrating when a half hour show takes an hour and a half to watch because of constant reloading.

steaming issues with Wii

I have a strong signal and it will stop playing the movie from Netflix on my Wii. I don't understand the problem. Do I need a booster? Or can I attach a wire to the Wii from my computer to main stream that way?

How I would improve Netflix

The fast forward/ rewind feature, more movies available 4 streaming & more functionality

I'm hard-of-hearing and use subtitles when watching regular dvds. Is it possible for Netflix to add subtitles to the streamed video?
—Guest stan mcswain

I agree to..

Ugh I agree about how difficult it is to find movies on the site to add to the instant queue on the wii. I just wanna be able to search through all the movies available to watch on my wii, so i can add them. Its frustrating.

Searchable Movies

So i can go online and search out any of the over 12000 movies and TV episodes available to stream, however i have to use my computer to access the majority of them. If they were to put in a searching link instead of the up to 75 titles available in each category that would be great. Other than that, i have nothing but nice things to say about Netflix, i even canceled my Cable subscription and now only use Netflix. Granted the streaming options could be better, but if they were, there would be nothing for them to send me in the mail. Where else can you pay $8 a month and watch as much as you want without a single commercial! Screw you TiVo, DVR, OnDemand, and PayPerView, I'm a Netflicker for life!
