writes "I have been collecting VHS, DVDs, and now Blu-rays since the late nineties. These films on my shelf are my pride and joy and am pleased when people compliment me on the quality of my collection. My wife registered a Netflix account several months ago and I have been hesitant to use it. I do not pirate movies nor do I have a media server. The other night, I broke down and watched an HD film streaming through Netflix directly to my Ethernet-enabled TV. I was very impressed with the experience. My questions for Slashdot: Is it time for me to stop spending $20-$25 on new releases and buy/rent/stream them online?"
