Netflix streaming is total crap tonight no surprise. Watching Alias earlier on the PS4 played good until it dropped but did ramp up and this was 7 PM EST. Going back to Amazon Instant on the Fire TV perfect streaming. Then trying to watch Generator Rex on the Roku 3 looked like mud I could not get to play in there "great" eyeIO HD just there "terrible" VC-1 SD crap. This is after restarting and rewinding the stream about 5 times. Then for the heck of it I tried the ATV3 and it started out instantly in HD but I said I bet you it is going to drop down to there "terrible" VC-1 SD crap and it did half way took nearly a freaking minute to ramp up then it went back to HD most likely only 720p. Screw this I am going back to Amazon Instant on my Fire TV.
I wasted freaking nearly a grand of my money trying to find the perfect Netflix streamer but every freaking device craps out under congestion except for selling the house and moving to cablefreakingvison territory which is total bull crap that I should not have to do. It is not my ISP or speeds. I can stream Amazon, YouTube, Hulu Plus, Watch Disney Live, Vevo, Audio Addict, TuneIn Radio and every thing else out there perfect 24/7 except for Notfix.
Okay rant over I calmed down. Back to Amazon I go.
