thus immediately explaining the low uptake of Linux for general use.
The Netflix app is not available on my expensive Samsung so-called Smart TV although Lovefilm is.
But, since I ignore the Smart part of the TV and use my laptop - wired or wireless - as the Netflix client, it is not a serious issue.
Netflix also works perfectly on me and my sons' WinPhones.
As for never having stuff except old crap, well, old is not always crap. If you didn't see Breaking Bad when it was transmitted, use the free month to binge the lot.
Series like 24, Sons of Anarchy, Prison Break etc. are not considered crap my many either. You can also just watch Fawlty Towers and enjoy again and again - it really is much cheaper than buying box sets.
I started watching Modern Family after finishing Breaking Bad and having rather too much time available - also not bad.
And finally, Netflix made the rather good remake (although difficult to beat the original) House of Cards - definitely worth watching. I hear that Orange is the new black is good too.
They also have a reasonable amount of movies although I think Lovefilm Instant has the larger selection. I see almost everything using an unlimited subscription at Cineworld so movies on TV matter less to me.
To the person wondering why someone has two competing services... They each have different movies, if you wanted Kick-Ass, you might get Lovefilm but then you might not get Shooter or something that ends up on Netflix.
These services are the last line before telly and subsequently much cheaper than Sky movies or any other PAYG system (unless you watch hardly anything of course).
