  3. How far ahead does Netflix stream?
Was thinking of starting an episode of a TV show my home connection, pausing it and then watching it at work. On 360 Netlfix I've lost my connection halfway through a show and was able to finish it without ever reestablishing the connection. Anyone have any idea if this will work on 3DS netflix?

Your current progress syncs with the server so it should be the exact moment you stopped or within a couple minutes.

Not what I meant, My job doesn't have Wifi, so I want to start it at home, let it stream the episode onto my 3DS and then watch it at work.

Yep. The server and the 3DS are in sync. I have paused it, went to do something, and started right back where I left off.

He can't connect to the server if his work doesn't have wifi.

I'm not sure it works that way. I think its more of a live stream, and doesn't cache like what I think you are talking about.

Basically, TC is asking if he can load the whole video at home, then play it back without reconnecting to WiFi.

PS:
TC, you still didn't fix your sig...

Yes, I understand that now, but I don't think it works that way. You need either a huge amount of memory for that to happen, or a hard drive.
