I'm with you. Netflix would be what, $108 per year?
Not much, sure, but I instead watch any movie I plan to watch On-Demand from my cable company.

Given that I was only turning Netflix on once every 3 months or so, and that it never had any movies I wanted to see, and I no longer have time to sit through entire seasons of TV shows, it was averaging out to about $54 per movie. Maybe $36 or $27, but I was probably watching something "just because," not because I wanted to see it.

On-Demand is $5.99 per movie and I only use it when I want to see the movie.

Yeah... I guess I'm just the opposite.

Since I despise commercials, I absolutely refuse to PAY for commercials... I don't care about whether stuff is the most current... and I don't care if I see brand new (first season) shows, right away. So I'm 100% Netflix, with a Blu-Ray and DvD collection. I've been unplugged from broadcast TV since 2007 (When the first Roku Devices came out for Netflix), and haven't missed it one single bit. I use the web for news and some shows that I can't get on Netflix. My Bill went from $70 a month to $10 a month, and there are no commercials, and I watch when *I* want to watch... not on a broadcaster's schedule. If I want to see a game... I'll go hit a local sports bar and have a few beers with some co-workers, and stimulate the local economy a little.

Obviously that is not for everyone... but since I game and surf more than I watch TV... it is more than plenty for me, and the wife likes it that way too.
