I am seriously considering dumping netflix and moving to HuluPlus, My most favorite show Stargate SG1 is going off their list in precisely 9 days, and my other favorite show Stargate Atlantis is already gone. I am growing tired of the "lame" movie choices and what they have to offer, once in a while there is a movie like Transformers being uploaded but it is very rare, there are basically no good movies for kids, I am no longer a kid but I do enjoy those very old Disney movies and stuff from the 90's.

If you have Huluplus - does the service have a lot to offer? can I watch stargate sg1 and atlantis there? are there good relatively new movies? how often do they actually upload new stuff? and most importantly - would you or have you ever considered switching to netflix? and also as far as reality is concerned are there many "cop" reality shows such as "rookies" "the first 48" and "cops"?

I've used it on a free trail, and didn't bother to renew the subscription. Netflix seems to have a better selection, and doesn't trash shows that often.

The thing that is really killing me about netflix is that they dumped SG Atlantis and will dump SG1. but if what you say is true then i have no other choice but to stay with netflix

BTW

what about amazon prime? is it any good?

Netflix actually still has SG Atlantis loaded, just not view-able. The rights owners of SG Atlantis are having a "dispute" with Netflix on how much a view gets them paid. SG1 is actually owned by a different group, hence no disruption.

I expect that this will run like the Starz Media dispute did a year ago. Stuff disappearing all over, people screaming, cats and dogs living together, and then it all just shows back up.

Well I hope you are correct and it will get back up.. otherwise if amazon gets their app running on the newer SAMSUNG TVs so that it supports my TV i will check them out and see what they have to offer..

thanks for all the help
