So when did THIS start?? I get to the end of any streamed movie or TV show (I am watching on a PS3) and Netflix has to butt in and window the credits while showing links to next episodes for TV or other "films I might like" for movies. To be fair, you can click to the windowed credits and jump back to the film full screen but WHY should we have to do that... this kind of on-screen garbage is the reason I stopped watching movies on cable. SHOW THE WHOLE MOVIE AS IT WAS INTENDED TO BE SEEN. How hard is that???
I haven't encountered that yet (I stream through my laptop), but that would piss me off. I fully agree with you.
I have seen that happen with the last two movies I watched.
I find it RUDE and very disruptive. The equivalent of someone snatching a book from my hands as I am finishing the last chapter.
Even worse: as I was watching the movie "Evelyn" last night, and it happened TOO EARLY, before the credits roll actually started, as some still text was giving background information about the true story that the movie was based on. I had to go back to the movie "window" to bring it back in full screen and rewind it to see what I had missed.
I want to be able to control WHEN I stop watching my movies.
Do you also use a PS3 to stream, or some other device?
I'm only talking about streaming on the PS3. I have Netflix installed on other devices but haven't streamed anything on them lately. This just happened for the first time and got me so irked I fled to the unfocused rage forum :)
I understand that. I was asking nlmike what he uses.
I only use the PS3.

Then do that. Problem solved. Next...
Unacceptable. Let them get away with this and next they'll start popping up ads during the film. "Did you like the explosion you just saw? Add Lethal Weapon II to your queue now!"
What do you mean "let" them get away with it. How are you preventing them from doing it now?
Yes, I figured that out. But WTF? How about paying to see a movie and then seeing the whole movie? Netflix is indeed becoming too good to be true.
I got the same thing. I called Netflix and spoke to a supervisor and he was no help. I think Netflix may be selling out and turning into TV or Cable. I foresee commercials that we have to pay for, like cable.
Do you remember what exactly the supervisor told you? Literally nothing or just something you didn't want to hear? Are we sure this isn't a device-specific thing?
