in the wake of the Netflix pricing outcry I heard a bunch of namedrops of other services on Twitter and got curious. I HATE
the netflix apps on both iPhone and iPad. They are slow, crash a lot, hide user reviews (which I really like to see, esp when evaluating kids movies on suitability). I find Netflix' streaming selection not great and like everybody else I keep drinking the Kool Aid that it will improve soon :) I really don't mind the pricing, wanted to kill the dvd service component anyway, but very much dislike their app quality and the selection.
The hottest candidate from this discussion for me is Amazon Prime streaming, I wasn't aware of that and will check it out. We have Amazon Mom, which gives you Prime for free.
