I had one of these for just my second DVD, the Fountain. I am thinking that I might like a preference between extra shipping time from an alternate facility, or just getting another movie to watch ASAP.
I finally bought the NetFlix bullet and WatchNow was one of the key reasons. There are a ton of movies I want to watch, like Jackass and the Comedians of Comedy, passively and which my wife doesn't care for. It is a great way to see them while I work, without wasting the days to send and return a DVD. I usually just listen in the background or I can always run the S-Video or connect the second monitor. I do wish I didn't need IE (I use the IE Tab extension in FireFox to hide it, however) and that my wife could use it on her Ubuntu box. There was a demo of a Silverlight version of WatchNow, however. That runs on Firefox, and is being ported by Mono to Linux. It is also already on Mac, so all the complainers about that can just wait a while.
