 I am currently loking into using both of these video service providers as part of our schooling andI am in need of some opinions....

  Does anyone use them and how well does it work for you?  Do you stream or do you have equipment that lets you watch some other way?

How do you work both of them into your day?  Do you use one for the daytime and one for the night time?

 We get Netflix but we don't use the streaming because our Internet is not consistent & we have to buffer a lot. I have Amazon Prime & we get free instant watch shows with that. I have a friend that used Blockbuster & hated it so we never tried it!

 Do you mom's use it just for school or do you use it for watching whenever?

 We use the netflix mostly for movies for entertainment. We get 3 DVDs out at a time & it was supposed to be 1 for the kids, 1 for hubby & me (for our date night in our room) & 1 for educational use but it hasn't worked out that way!

The Amazon Prime we don't use much because it really doesn't have a lot of what we like on it for free.

We also have Satellite with a DVR & we us it for educational stuff all the time. My kids love to watch shows on science, history, nature, home improvement & cooking.

 We have Netflix streaming through our dvd player.  We really like it.

 Yes, we aren't the kind of people that watch a movie over & over so there really is no reason to buy them & my kids love watching movies so it is nice to have a variety at our disposal.

we stream nextflix thru out wii and like it. i have alwasy like nextflix.. used to get the discs delivered and just switched to streaming.. not as many movies available that way but still  love netflix.. i also have a blockbuster account.. there was a 30 day trial so i thougth i would check it out but use it for games for the wii.. its ok.. they take much longer to ship then netflix did so we are waiting longer in between games.. and then most of the ones we want aren't available.. it says there is a wait for them so i am not sure if i will keep it past the trial... 

will most likely switch to www.gamefly.com for the games but will def keep netflix.. we love it... :)
