I have noticed that most tv shows/movies are not actually "Current" so to say. What I mean by that is the show called "Storm chasers" only goes to as far s 2011, when they already have out stuff from 2013. But it isn't on netflix.... I am confused.

It's part of their licensing and distribution terms. They negotiate for certain seasons and movies, but can't always get the latest and greatest. That is, without raising prices. I wish Netflix offered a premium membership and more content.

Netflix can be hit or miss. Shows like House of Cards really make a subscription worthwhile. If you pay the DVD option you get all the streaming and the choice of current movies and TV shows

Yup, totally agree. We did let our Netflix DVD option run out a while back when they first jacked up the price to have both services. We've lived without the DVDs for the most part. But....I can't say that we have saved any money by doing so, since we tend to put more money in that evil Red Box located out our local Wally World!

I still use Netflix DVD for rentals, been thinking about switching to Red Box for some time but haven't for the very reason you just mentioned!

Now if you have the netflix part its self for 7.99 a month. Do they add more money just to add the DVD rentals as well? How does that work?

Yes they charge more if you add on the DVD rental part. I just use the streaming but there are some shows that are only offered on the DVD exchange and I do miss watching them. Maybe soon I can afford to add it so I can access it all.

They can only show so much due to the agreements they have with the individual show creators and networks. Some may let them show thing sup till last year and other may only go until 2011-2012. It all depends on what each network has for their guidelines. If a network offers current shows through their own systems and website then they do not want people to be able to get it somewhere else, so they are not going to release it to Netflix. - See more at: http://www.dtvusaforum.com/internet-tv/55052-netflix-tv-shows-movies.html#sthash.0SVKmvCJ.dpuf

Oh that makes sense. But I figured out if you watch the storm chasers show, they actually have a website on the side of there vehicle they use. I think its reese's but not sure. All I remember about the guy is he seems very very high strung and that joel came back in the season 2011 after leaving the year before. But my husband has bookmarked the page just to make sure he sees all the live feeds for when they go back on storm chasing again.
