    Hey guys. So today I found out that my copy of powerdvd 13 I brought on ebay was a trial version. Only $10. I should have known better. I'm not about to drop 100 beans for that software. Its not that great. If I were to use a streaming service like Redbox Instant or the others available, it doesn't require any special hardware correct or fees other than renting? I hate it because renting the stream version of a movie cost a lot more than a Redbox blu-ray. I paid a nice bit for this blu ray drive too, but I guess it's time for it to go too.

    Have you tried Netflix or Amazon?

    Netflix has a month free trial, so it's worth giving that a shot.

    Redbox Instant sucks.

    Between Netflix and Amazon Prime, I'm pretty good. I refuse to pay for ads, so I won't use Hulu.

    I am using Netflix and it is doing fine to me. It's worth a penny. :clap:
