It's a bit like visiting xtravision online, on a friday in January 10 minutes before closing.
By the way, some strange definitions on films in the preference section. I was just asked "Do you often watch period dramas such as 'Dirty Dancing'".

Call me old fashioned but I'd be happy to pay a subscription fee and wait a little than rather than illegally downloading, which is pretty close to theft.

Hummm people do debate that though.

The reality is that if you have a free service with less restrictions and more content than a pay service the free service is likely to be favoured. Netflix need to be of excellent quality and reliability and have a far better range of films than they currently have in order to get off the ground. They should also be thinking of the competition they may soon be facing from apple.

What, whether it's theft? Taking something without paying and/or the consent of the owner is theft, no?

While there's no doubt that it's theft, entertainment companies would have to be very naive to think that people don't see file sharing etc as wrong as stealing a DVD from tesco. For the sake of their own profits, they need to offer a product that's better than the free one. Personally I think Netflix have got the price right in Ireland, but the product isn't up to scratch just yet.

No I am not speaking from a legal perspective. But from a moral one. I think of it as theft but I enjoy listening to the alternative opinions I have heard and read.

I think the (big corporate) moral arguments are very weak. It could apply to stealing lots of things

Oh I wouldn't even spit on that one. I love big corporations. My favourites are Coca-Cola and Tesco. I love stealing the former from the latter. Thats a joke by the way.

What moral arguments are there in favour of it?

I'm not judging anybody - I used to visit the pirate bay myself.I think you should call a spade a spade though.

BACKTRACK alert... maybe the word moral was the wrong word but I don't know if I can think of a more appropriate word atm.

One interesting one, at least on the surface concerned the access to culture.

Yea, breaking bad for example is only up to season 2. AFAIK they finished season 4 already.

Anybody know what the delay is for new shows/films in the US? Can we expect it to reach that sort of standard here?

They have the first 3 seasons of Breaking Bad.

Netflix's competitor over here isn't xtravision - it's Sky Movies. And basically Sky have bought all the first transmission rights to loads of stuff, so Netflix can't compete for new movies. But for older movies, it can offer a comparable selection for a lot less.

Similarly, it's main tv show competitor over here is Sky Atlantic, which has the exclusive rights on HBO content.

One argument is that it's a victimless crime.

Meh Fringe is heavily pirated. Probably won't be renewed. 150 odd crew.... most not paid brilliantly.
