2.99 to watch crappy films Video On Demand (VOD) style? And such a limited to collection at that. This is the reason why sites such as www.hulu.com will always have an advantage over GreenCine's. At least all their videos are for free and some of them are even good. GC members should get VOD for free, not pay 2.99 and the movies that sit in our queues for months before being shipped out should be uploaded to the internet. Then that way we have an alternative to the long wait period.

Thanks for the suggestion and patience while our VOD system is on hold. When we come back we'll have more on demand movies to chose from so hopefully you'll think a little better of our selection then!

My worry is just the opposite -- that as VOD continues to gain in popularity, the DVD format (including Blu-ray) will gradually be phased out, and we'll end up with much less choice rather than more, with obscure little films and older titles disappearing from any availability at all. Nothing to do specifically with GreenCine; it will be industry-wide.

If GreenCine could support the $99 Roku player, we would no longer be tied to our PCs to watch VOD titles. Also, GC could use it to offer a "movie of the week" or maybe its own movie channel.

I share that emotion! I just read tonight about a new LG line of HDTV's that will be compatible with Netflix's VOD streaming. You plug your TV into your boardband connection. Of course, everything will be nice and locked up and you may store it for a bit but that space will have a limit and you will not be able to loan it to a friend without loaning your Big Flat Screen to them!

The content nazi gotta me love it. Smells like Divx again to me.

That's one thing that's great about the tiny Roku box. That and the fact that you don't pay for each movie you watch, so there's no need to loan the video to a friend--just send them a link to the movie's page on Netflix.

So, is VOD still not an option on GC, or am I missing the location of this feature?
