My Netflix Player is here. Now what?

I've received my Netflix Roku today! Just as they say, it was a breeze to set up. The hardest part is deciding what to watch first!

I also received two Netflix DVDs in the mail.

What I should do is watch and return my DVDs before using the Netflix Player to watch movies instantly. Oh, if only I could call in sick tomorrow!

I'll never be able to cancel Netflix. Never.

My Netflix player is coming!!

I'm so excited, I can hardly stand it!! I just ordered a Netflix Player from Roku! I can't wait for it to arrive. The second I learned about it on Hacking Netflix, I had to have one!! I might never watch a DVD again. This little box will allow me to watch Netflix instantly on my regular TV, via my home WiFi Internet connection. I won't be tied to my computer any more. I have 56 movies in my Watch Instantly queue, but I'll be adding more soon.

This means it won't matter if I have a Mac or a PC, I'll be able to Watch Now without my computer at all!

Wow, this signals the end of an era for me. No more cable TV, no more broadcast TV, no more DVR, no more DVDs. Well, maybe not yet. There are still 444 movies in my queue that are available only on DVD.

I will let you know how it works.

One month free trial cards from Netflix

I received four one month free trial cards by mail from Netflix, with priority codes.

For each of you that uses one of these codes, I'll get a bonus disc. For each activated card, I'll see a "Bonus Disc" button appear in my queue for each new member.

If you received these in the mail, feel free to post your codes in the comments. Maybe you'll get bonus discs too.

I have to share my promo codes this way, because all my real-life friends and family are already Netflix members!

If you've never joined before, click on Netflix Tell A Friend and enter one of the following codes. If these codes don't work, check the comments for more.


This offer ends June 15, 2008.

One month free Netflix

For new members only. Try this link. Expires 06/15/08.

I got it in an email. This time, there's no promo code or coupon code, just a button to click in the email. I've tried to extract what I think is the relevant information from the URL. Let me know in the comments if it doesn't work. When I click it, it redirects me to my home page, since I'm already a member. You might have to delete your Netflix cookie to see it.
