No Netflix for me, I guess...

From what I've been reading you can only watch videos by streaming, not some kind of download. Problem is, I don't have home internet. Wouldn't make much sense for me to pay a monthly fee to be able to watch videos only in places with wifi - which does not include my home.

I'm gonna have to wait till I get internet at home. But before that I'll have to get a better PC, as I'm not even sure the relic I have now can handle internet. Seriously, that thing is a fossil. Put it this way: just a couple years ago I upgraded it... to XP.

He said he doesn't have any Internet access at home period, not that he lacks broadband.

You uh... you do realize that other places exist which do have internet, right? >_>

I started a couple days ago, before we knew it was coming today. Clearly I had no use for Netflix before this, so I wouldn't have known.

...And I hope you're not getting on my case for not already knowing this. It's not like this is one of those topics where I ask something I could have easily found out by looking on my own for 5 seconds. I did find out on my own - I just didn't magically always know.

I didn't assume you knew. That's why I asked. Internet makes people always think the worst of a comment....
