First off, I like Netflix a lot. However, like most real companies, with customers and stuff like that, they can be slow to add fairly simple features. The feature I have in mind is pre-fetching. It’s not that hard to implement. Yes, I understand they a larger user base than 1 person, and they also have a large list of titles to sort through, but I don’t care.
It’s a simple feature, and you aren’t building the wheel — there are sites and 3rd party libs that help make this easier. Anyway, they finally have it, and it’s a big help. Still, this shouldn’t take that long… By the way, the depicted movie, MST3K: I Accuse my Parents, is pure genius.
