Agree on the audio, although I hope that's something they will be fixing soon. Also agree with the strange selection of TV shows, and the StarzPlay titles are always 16:9, regardless of OAR which is kindof annoying. I wish they'd just do their own encodes (or get them from a source which could maintain the OAR).
As for the selection of movies, I have no problems. Titles in my DVD queue are becoming available in my instant queue faster than (or as fast as) I can watch them, and I have hovered around 60 titles available for a couple months now.
I really have no problem with the PQ for most titles. Some of the older stuff is a mixed bag, but I am pretty happy with it for the most part.
Regardless, my basic rules regarding the instant service is:
- If it's available on Blu-Ray, I have that shipped to me.
- If it's not on Blu-Ray, but is an action or special effects movie (where PQ and AQ matter to me), I'll have the DVD shipped to me.
- If neither of the above are true, then I'll watch it on the instant service
As such, I end up watching mostly documentaries, dramas, foreign movies, and comedies with the Instant Service....but that still leaves me around 60 movies currently in my Instant Queue.
That setup works for me and I'm more than happy with the service.
