    What's everyone's opinion > I Re-downloaded the app on my roku and there seems to be quite a bit more streaming TV and Movies and quite a bit of stuff is HD where the MOD program only offers it in DVD Format, so anyone who has it care to comment if it's worth the $10 bucks a month yet?

    I've been a paying member since they launched the iPad app and used it so much that I bought a Roku as well to play it on my projector in HD. I watch at least 2-3 movies a week on it.

    I took advantage of the free trial, so far I like it. I'd love to see CBS and other start up a streaming service I'd gladly pay for the ability to stream their movie and tv catalog. They could make some profit on stuff to unprofitable to release on disk

    I tried it last year about this time but quickly found that many shows that ran for multiple seasons didn't have the whole run available. For instance, Superman only had two seasons available for streaming.

    I would like the archive to be integrated with their download electronic sell thru. A buy now button on the service next to the film would be wonderful.

    I recently watched The Show by Tod Browning on WAS and enjoyed it tremendously. Even the movies that aren't in HD look and sound great. Between Warner Archive, Amazon Prime and Netflix Streaming, I don't need cable at all. I put up a small leaf antenna for broadcast and I'm set.

    I think they are getting much better.
    I have been with them from the start.
    And they are adding more all the time.
    And keep in mind. They are not going to re-new over 500 Movies & TV shows that they have been letting NetFlix have.
    So over time, NetFlix will lose them.
    And Warner will have them online.
    Really for $10.00 a month. You can't go wrong..
    I am going to keep them...

    I am considering this, but it doesn't seem like you can get HD on your computer or ps3.

    Any comments from people now about whether they like this service? Do they get new movies monthly?

    Thanks, Ben

    Ben,

    Try a Roku 3.Going to your TV with a HDMI Cable. I like Warner Archives.They are great for the Old TV shows & Movies.
    Also CBS has CBS all access. CBS All Access .Com
