    One of the main reasons I went with Netflix was to avoid stupid F***ing advertisements.

    Rates goes up this year at Netflix. It if goes up by $15 or $20 in 2 years I am dropping them. They're turning into CATV service or something other than that.

    U can get Netflix on virgin tivo here in the uk its same as browsing on ur PC or ps3. Watching us stuff on catch ups using proxy's my god does ur content suck for adds. Adverts every 10 mins on a lot of stuff. Catch up over here has an add at the start and maybe in the middle of the program. Or u can just use add blocker plus and watch on ur PC hooked up to TV I try not to do that as I actually want to support the content creators but US TV is ****ed add blocker goes on for anything streamed off us services!
