    How does it work? I see it advertised now as going through the Wii game?

    Yep.. your wii automatically connects to the internet if you have wifi in your house. You just put a special disc in your wii and you can watch all the instant movies you want. LOVE it!

    We're thinking about using it (the kind where they send you dvds in the mail). Has anybody ever had a negative experience?

    I live in the land of dial-up internet. High speed is not an option short
    of Hughes Net and I'm not interested in their contract.

    I do have Direct Tv with a big package. Actually got it for my daughter.
    I don't do much tv.

    Wife and I did use to curl up and watch rented movies, then we got older.
    (and bigger...we can't curl on the same couch these days.) Haven't rented
    a movie in a coon's age.

    Really did enjoy golfing on the Wii. But between the golf and the bowling, I
    hurt myself.

    Yeah.. the instant movies probably wouldn't work with dial-up. But if you do the dvd-in-the-mail thing it's actually pretty quick. If I mail one back on a Monday I'll get the next one on my list on Wednesday. [​IMG]

    we have netflix and I don't care for it we are not going to renew our contract. since we live in the middle of nowhere we have a 5 or six day turn arround on the movies. red box is only a dollar a day we use that more. we just don't watch enough movies to make it worth our while.

    we have been without a tv for a week , the lamp went out. I missed the news and one or two programs but I read a lot.
