FYI: I checked a list of channels available using a Roku and the number of channels available or at least listed was 257.

Streaming to my computer is working ok. But when I try to set up my XBox 360 it still tells me that this is only available in the 50 states and DC. Has anyone been able to enter the activation code for a Netflix device like the xbox?

I tried connecting using our Wii and received the message only valid in the 50 states. Now streaming on my laptop and connected to the TV. I was pleasantly surprised that the first 5 movies we watched we had no problems. Now, it seems to be locked up with a "loading" message and nothing's happening. No doubt weather related.

I have a ROKU. Netflix is currently still not allowing us to activate 3rd party devices in the USVI.
I called them, and the representative I spoke to was not aware that Netflix has recently started instant streaming for computers in the VI. He said this may be a "glitch" and would notify the engineers. Hopefully there this is just a slight delay for allowing 3rd party devices. For now I'll just hook up my laptop to my TV with HDMI.

At least I can cancel my witopia account for now!

I called customer service and they manually activated my xbox 360. It is working great, watching a movie now.

Well I don't know ROKU (it's a steep learning curve) but the streaming deal is way cool.

Its a little box that connects to your TV and the Internet and it comes with a remote. Allowing you to watch content from the internet on your TV

your xbox 360 streams from Netflix? How? We cannot get ours activated. The Netflix app opens on the xbox and says we need to activate it online using the code, but when we go online to activate, the netflix website claims we cannot use the xbox in the islands. ??

help!

Did you all see that starting Sept. 1 they are gong to start charging extra for using both DVD AND Streaming - or you can pay less for just one or the other?

There had to be a catch.
