Was your old provider Time Warner? I have the basic Spectrum Time Warner dvr now and it's not great but it's perfectly serviceable; I suspect Verizon would probably be comparable

Sheer speculation with regard to ODAAT: unlike just about anyone else in the game, the global audience is what matters to Netflix. So “not enough people” could mean “not enough people outside the U.S.”

Skyped in to my friend 's J-school class at Northwestern. During a discussion of being a critic, it emerges that 1 of the 15 students has seen "Chinatown." Occurs to me later that "Chinatown" is exactly as old to them as "King Kong" was to 19-year-old me.

Ha! So that "Turn Up Charlie" review I was going to get cracking on may have to wait, since this is now the only option.

I think we'd be fools if we didn't assume that every network and service and p.r. agency doesn't routinely, on a daily basis, monitor who's watched what

Yes! There's a difference between their right to monitor their digital screeners, which I guess I don't dispute, and the common sense involved in keeping it to themselves.

I've had the direct acknowledgement several times, from different people, whose names I won't mention.

You've never received the "Hey, I saw you watched XXX, what did you think?" email from a publicist?

Right. Of course they could always track screener viewing, as can all the providers. But they would have to make an effort to track your personal viewing, and you could take steps to disguise your personal account.

Sure, or through credit cards. But (extrapolating from my limited tech knowledge) the change they've instituted -- asking critics to identify their personal Netflix accounts, which would then become the home for screeners -- would hugely increase the ease and temptation.
