Netflix expands Internet viewing option The popular online rental service Netflix has lifted the limits on how long subscribers can watch movies and television shows over broadband connections.
The move comes on the eve of Macworld in which Apple is expected to move into the movie rental industry. CEO Steve Jobs has not confirmed the move yet however.

Currently, Netflix has set restrictions on how their users can use the streaming service, based on what service plans they have. For example, if you use the $16.99 USD per month plan customers can watch up to 17 hours of streaming video per month. That restriction is now gone, and users, as long as they have the $9.99-per month or higher plans, can watch unlimited streaming video.

Netflix needs to expand their TV and movie choices for their streaming video service. They are very limited in this regard.

The choices of Movies/TV Shows are indeed very limited. I don't want to watch "I Love Lucy" or John Wayne shooting pigeons. Hopefully the emerging competition will bring improvements.

Netflix always keeps up with their competition and most of the time surpasses them.
