I agree. More selection of movies is needed. But this would drive up the price per month.

I wouldn't mind paying $20 a month if they added 500 more movies. More of every category.


Also, I noticed the tracker is limiting the selection as well. It analyse your watched films and gives you similar movies. I used to see more movies before in the menu. I want to see all the movies and not just what they believe I will watch based on my history.
I hate the current menu format. I like the previous better.

I think the problem is, is that they have to negotiate distribution rights for all the content. It's the same reason why the XBOX Marketplace's content is subpar in Canada than to the US. The US was the bigger market, so the negotiated the rights in the USA first.

now netflix has to figure who has the rights, keep the costs under control, and negotiate with those that hold the rights in Canada. I get the feeling its more difficult in Canada, as netflix isn't the only online distributer to have subpar canadian offerings. I assume netflix will keep working at it, and will get better with time.

also take into account that it might not be worth the money to get the same content for canada when we're 1/10th the size of the US market....

I would just give it more time. They will gradually add more titles every day. Of course, if the adoption rate was higher in Canada, they would probably be added faster. They should work out some kind of agreement with Rogers, etc.. so that their service isn't capped due to bandwidth concerns.
