    What do you pay for a DVD on average?

    Re: Movie Rentals

    Don't have cable but I like to stream movies to my computer. Have a 23" Wide screen HD monitor with 7.1 surround.

    I like the mail to me DVD's for the TV.

    So Netflix covers it all for one low price.

    The best part is I don't have to wait for new movies to come to satellite or cable.

    I hooked a 12 foot long S-cable from my computer to my 50" big screen LCD TV to watch Netflix Watch Instantly.. My computer has high quality sound so I use it for the sound. Works great.
    Netflix is great. And cheap. It comes to less than a buck a movie.

    No ability for VGA (sometimes laptops did not have VGA connection ports)? If I were you, I would go that route if possible from your computer.

    I don't watch that many movies, but the girlfriend uses Netflix and she seems to like it.

    The S cable works just fine and results in DVD quality picture off streaming Netflix.
