  • Yes they are. They don't have nearly as much mivies to stream as Netflix. But I am glad that someone is giving them some competition.

  • Go to and click where it says Activate a Device. Follow the instructions to download it onto your computer or phone or whatever. Once it is installed, open it up and follow the instructions in the download wizard. It is a pay per view thing tho, they don't have the online streaming like Netflix.
    And they probably won't either, because of their stores. If everyone could just instantly stream the new releases, why would they bother coming into the stores?
    I work for them, so you can see why I don't want them to do streaming. It would kill the business and then I would have no job.
