Geek Tip: Watch Free Movies With Netflix Online

If you are a movie junkie and want some quick-fix flicks to watch, here's a little tip you may enjoy. Forewarning: you must be a Netflix subscriber, use Windows and have a fast internet connection to reap the benefits of this helpful hint.

Netflix now offers free online movies for all subscribers. There are over 2,000 movies to choose from and more are added everyday. All movies are streamed to your computer and the amount you can watch on your PC depends on your subscription plan. According to Ars Technica, users with the $5.99 plan will get six hours of online viewing each month, while those with the popular $17.99 plan get 18 hours.

I just switched to netflix because was getting way too expensive. The only downside with watching movies is that I can't do so from my Mac. Good thing I still have my PC.

yea! thanx for using my tip... Netflix was so nice they even let you finish the movie you are watching if you run out of time, just make sure you don't close the window and start over.

i can't wait till uplink speeds are high enough on cell phones so that you can watch a movie on your cell phone. picture it. sitting in the DMV, time will go by so fast! then, pause and resume later. oh man i love technology!

Um, yeah. I've tried it on several different computers and it has never managed to work. Someone message me if you've had any luck with it.

i wish they had this in canada. even with the cheapest plan for netflix you get a ton of movie-watching time! ou could watch up to 3 movies in 6 hours...maybe 4 depending on length, plus your regular videos.

I just watched sleepless in seattle, then the first 4 episodes of the office, season 1. I love this feature of Netflix, and i will not move to blockbuster now. who cares about an instore rental when you can watch shiz on your computer at home, without leaving the house?

I watched a movie on Netflix. It's such a cook feature, and makes it even more worth my money. But it did keep stopping and starting again, probably because of my internet connection. I hope they add even more movies you can watch online. I love it.
