  1. I took the free two week trail. You can add season one of Man From Uncle. At the moment they offer around 140 movies, TV Movies, and series. The prints are gorgeous. The picture for series such as Jericho and Hawaiian Eye is certainly better than what I watched on my 1960s TV set.

    If they continue to add shows I will be happy to pay the $9.99 a month.

  2. Blech. First you have to use a credit card for the trial. Second the PC streaming requires Silverlight. Even Netflix is updating their system to use HTML5 considering Microsoft Silverlight make Flash seems like a breath of fresh air.
