Remember I almost live on it during the winter months on the forums too. I don't do much streaming at all only the occassional download for a youtube type clip for bike related stuff.

Do I have enough internet package or do I have to go higher yet?
I'm one of these guys that if I find a great show to sit and veg into I could watch the entire thing, within reason.
Thanks guys.

Your ISP should be able to tell you your current data usage.

Netflix does a first month free trial. I believe that you can turn off HD streaming also to save bandwidth. Try it and see what the data usage is like.

travisn000 Fringe is a great show.. the wife and I watch it pretty regularly on hulu, but I don't think hulu is available outside of the US.

Current / final season is season 5... I havent' yet seen the finale; it should be available on hulu next week.

As far as Netflix goes, I would guess you might need more than 25 gigs to watch seasons of fringe, but I'm not really sure. I'm basing this my ability to consume almost 6 gigs of youtube on my mobile phone while on vacation for a week at the beginning of the month.

I also have netflix, but don't really use it much (..got a 1 year free subscription with a new LG TV); my boys use it to watch cartoons on the weekends and its great for that, as they don't get the barrage of commercials.. which means i don't get the barrage of "we need to buy.."

At least now you know there is a beginning and an end.

What? It's over? I just got started! Don't tell me how it ends

So OK I'm hooked same thing happened when I discovered Lost. Had to catch up on 5 seasons. I don't know what season Fringe is on currently but it going to take me awhile to get there.

Anybody else like the show?
I liked it from the start - but with my screwy rotating work schedule, I ended up dropping out of it. It's twisted and strange - totally mind bending.

Just as an FYI: The series finale was either last week or two weeks ago. So you'll be able to watch the whole thing, beginning to end.

Hell, maybe I should do the same thing...
