Comments about Amazon Prime that I read a couple days ago said that Canadian version has limited library of titles.

We already subscribe to Netflix. The same comment applies to them when they first opened about the difference in the amount of content available between US and Canada. But I think that situation has improved because we find lots to watch. If we can learn to download only Netflix it'd probably do us just fine.

Don't know about Amazon Prime but there's a 30 day free trial so we'll check it out.

I have a small DVD player that plugs into the UDB ports of my laptop, and works great. The only drawback is no remote. Last trip we just borrowed some DVD's from our daughter, and I bet with other friends and family could arm ourselves for many trips to come.

But I think your thoughts about just downloading from those sites is going to be the future, and DVDs will fade out of use too. It is so nice to have a whole library on one small device.

When we were in Oregon we had WiFi one night, and seeing it was poring rain (which was the norm that trip), we signed into Netflix, same signup as our Canadian account, and watched a couple shows. Quite nice, but you do need WiFi or it would cost an hordes using data.

Longmire for sure but the one we enjoyed most was "Rake". Love that gritty Australian stuff.
