I just signed up with blockbuster movie Pass and cancelled my Netflix streaming(auctually put on hold).I have a question about Block buster ,is there an easier way to find movies to watch Instantly,rather than having to stroll through 3000 titles to find what you would like to watch.

Common complaint, I'm betting in time it will be improved. Remember this is very new and was implemented quite quickly. Not really an excuse but an explanation.

I agree with the others in saying that the interface leaves a lot to be desired (and that is probably being too kind). However, you can narrow down by genre, HD/SD, release year, and a few other choices I believe...I'm not at the TV right now to double check them all, but that does make it easier, although still less than ideal. So for example, if you wanted to watch an HD Horror movie since it's nearly Halloween, you can select that and narrow it down quite a bit.

You are correct sir. never understood this complaint. seems pretty straight forward and simple to me and my wife.

The interface of the website is terrible. I couldnt even find anything to stream, well the 3.99 rental streamings were pretty easy to locate. The service is very young so hopefully they improve its useability. In its current form its a mess and is a big turn off to use.

Please, no disrespect meant, but have you ever seen NetFlix's Menu? It's much, much more user friendly.

ah, i see my confusion. i was refering to the receiver based menu stuff. haven't used the online yet. it's blocked at work, and i'm only home for a few hours a day so not much time to surf web.

I've actually kept the netflix streaming for now. My son uses it at college quite a bit. Hopefully Dish can get the menu more like that of Netflix. In its current form I find it almost unusable.

I just narrow things down using the filtering options (genre/HD/SD/Rating, etc). Makes it pretty easy. Granted, it could be a lot better, and hopefully it will be, but it's not like it's utterly useless as it is presently...
