Netflix Movie Fans

After buying the wonderful Sony 350 player, i began receiving Blu-Ray titles from Netflix. Today, i canceled my blu-ray subscription. Of the four titles we received, all were unplayable at some point during the movie and one disk was cracked. i'm not impressed with NetFlix.

yeah , they are a pretty crappy company ! they treat their discs like shit and then actually try to send them to us
oop shit this isnt what we're supposed to do with our netflix blu-rays?? my bad!

The firmware update was the first task we completed after purchase. Disk problems were random and happened at different points during the movies. Some disks were dirty and the problems slightly abated after washing. however, problems still persisted.
Have not had a single Blu-ray title that wouldn't play yet.
I am using BluRay from netfilix for last one year, never had any problem!
I was wondering where does the bad discs go, now I know!
Just started getting Blu-Ray a few weeks ago. With my Samsung player, I've never had a problem.
i have had a Sony Blu-ray player since last April. I average one DVD or Blu-ray disc a day from netflix or BB. I have never had a disc that would not play or would get stuck or skip due to a scratch or fingerprint. One time the player froze while I was watching that Showtime series "Brotherhood". Nothing would work. I unpluged the player at the back and that corrected the problem. It reminded me of a computer crash. It had nothing to due with the disc.
Interesting solution. i'll give it a try.
Yeah, I've had a few BDs that froze up the player before even loading and I had to unplug the player to reset it. Most of them worked on the second try, except for a copy of Sunshine which wouldn't load no matter how long I left it in. I got a replacement and that one worked fine.
Out of about a dozen BR discs that I've gotten, three were also screwed up at some point in the movie. :(
Never had a problem with any slowly received blu-ray discs.

This is a real, widespread problem. First noted two years ago -- use google, you'll find the blogs etc. No sign that Netflix has acknowledged the extent of the issue. I had no problems at first with blu-ray discs, but then -- of the last four "Lost" series discs I've gotten from Netflix, three had visible cracks at the edge and either wouldn't play or had at least a couple of chapters that stopped cold. With movies that circulate less often, e.g., "Frozen River" or "Tell No One," no problem. They hadn't gone thru the mail as many times. I've downgraded my netflix subscription to 3 discs, no blu-ray. I love blu-ray quality but I'm not going to endure the frustration of getting a disc in the mail only to discover it's unplayable. Netflix needs to change their shipping method for these discs.
