    I'm considering the Amazon service, but not sure...Netflix is pretty solid, and I'll absolutely be keeping that.

    I don't use a video service - don't watch movies/tv on the tablet, but do USE/HAVE videos (found on YouTube or home produced). Smooth playing is important when I do view/show them.

    I just watch sports highlights from whoever has them. The Coby already has a Youtube player, but needed Flash for the others.

    I used to stream netflix on the xbox and the computers, but when the price hiking and splitting of their mailer service came about we revolted and dropped them.

    Somewhat and Netflix. I have to say though that YouTube and flash videos cannot be underestimated here. That is probably the majority of my time in the tablet (no not pronz)

    There have been multiple times I needed flash for my local sports, etc. My Ipad won't do it. So, I'm in the market for an android. Just beginning my research.
