Still given for BestBuy customers. Buy online they email you the code. Buy in-store, they ask you for your email and email you the code.

Netflix

Yes, I can confirm that the Netflix code (printed on the receipt from Best Buy) works. I never had Netflix prior to this, so it was a brand new subscription (I realized later that I should have done the free one month from Netflix then added the three months later).

For those that REALLY want one - selling on ebay for about $70 with shipping, lots listed - auction and buy it now.

I'm not going to pay $70 for it, got one on back order at Amazon.com, my credit card already works there and I'm off over the border next week and will see if I can pick one up.

Same here. Bestbuy still shows them as out of stock even online. Google shows shipping in 2-3 weeks but doesn't seem to want to take a Canadian credit card. So I ordered a couple on Amazon.com (which takes my Canadian credit card just fine) and now I'll just wait.

The bestbuy website provides an address for Canadians to use, no need to make anything up.

When I placed the order on bb.com there was no option to change the country for the billing address to a Canadian one with a post code.

I lucked out - happend to stumble across one by accident when strolling in a Best Buy. They only had 1 left from a shipment they said they got last night.

Might cancel my Amazon order now as I have one to play with and if I want more I can order them in the future when they're back in stock and possibly available in Canada too.

Picked mine up from a BB in Burlington today, still got one of back order with Amazon and will probably keep the order as I can see me wanting to have 2 at least.

It works well when showing people things on your laptop for example. Can display just a browser tab in chrome or the entire desktop. Not quite sure about Netflix yet - so far I'd rather use my Roku.

I think the way to think of it is like this: the Roku, AppleTV, etc are devices. They have remote controls, interfaces, updates, etc. This isn't really a device, in that way. You can't really control it directly. Instead it's just secondary screen for the devices you already have.
