I live in the back-of-beyond and thus have to have satellite internet. This was subsidised by the Scottish government but because of this I didn't get a choice on what package I could get.

So I'm stuck with very fast internet but a ridiculous 4Gb monthly limit. So I can only stream shows occasionally, and then they must be low quality.

netflix does streaming/downloading [or "watch instantly"] but the bulk of the service is DVDs delivered via mail. So as long as you get post [and I suppose as long as netflix is available in your area] you can get the service. You might not get it as quickly as most people [1-2 days], but it's quite affordable and has a pretty great selection.
