Interesting tidbit about the Roku. I will check into that this evening.

Another one I ran into with all this searching around is free fitness videos on Roku. This is another one I haven't really added any of the channels to check it out, but if you have Roku, there appears to be a bunch there for free? We have Netflix streaming, Roku, Prime video, CBS all access, and I'm starting to wonder what the heck we need with Comcast anyway?

@NITEMAN3D No worries! Hopefully, Netflix and Hulu and other streaming services will hop on the fitness bandwagon and include fitness videos some day soon. I have seen some of the Amazon streaming ones. They seem to have a good variety.

You folks are correct. When I do it via Comcast remote request, it's taking me to a screen that says 258 matches, but when I actually click on them it's something called Fit Fusion which is not coming from Netflix. When I just log into Netflix on the computer I find little as well (some bodybuilding stuff). Sorry for the misguidance.

After a little exploration, that Fit Fusion is a Jillian Michaels thing that gives away one or two videos and then all the rest are for purchase or on-demand subscription only and has nothing to do with Netflix, even though I said: "on Netflix". So typical of Comcast. If they can't gouge you from one direction, they try another. When their on-demand first started, almost everything was free and now almost nothing is. The good news for me is that I found a lot of stuff online for free that I didn't know was there. Most sites probably offer to sell you something related to the videos, but the videos do appear to stream for free.

@NITEMAN3D Hmmmm....I still haven't found fitness vidoes on the Netflix streaming site after searching with a variety of key words. Maybe it's just for the DVD part, where they send you DVDs?

@CYBERBEET551 Yeah,the fitness extras in the Leslie Sansone DVDs are sometimes overly happy. It is obnoxious but oh well.

Thanks to all of the suggestions, I found her on Amazon. I am a Prime member, so you can rent or buy her "DVD", but it really just streams on tv - which is just what I'm looking for!
I rented "Leslie Sansone: Walk To The HITS Party Songs", as I like to dance (to the oldies).
A comment: This Leslie Sansone: Walk To The HITS Party Songs, is fast paced and if you're not coordinated like me, is a bit difficult to follow.
Also, what's with all the over enthusiastic people behind her and what are they smiling about - ugh! I don't find exercise THAT much fun, so I found it to be a bit annoying lol.
Maybe because it is 9:30pm and I should be shutting down.
Will try again tomorrow. Good Night and Keep dancing :)

The Comcast part won't make any difference in your Netflix content, it just makes it easier. You should be able to search for "exercise videos" or "fitness videos" and come up with some for sure. I wanted to thank you, folks, for making me check out my sources because I found a bunch of Yoga videos that I didn't know were there when I was looking for this. I'm getting old and creaky and need some good stretching routines which Yoga is famous for. Spark on!

Thanks Niteman. I don't have Comcast cable, just plain old Netflix. I'll check it out out.

MLAN613, I have a Comcast voice remote with Netflix enabled and when I say "fitness videos on Netflix" it comes back with 258 results. I knew they were there because I've done several. There are even more on Prime and even more than that on YouTube.

I know that HULU and Netlix don't have any fitness videos streaming. I am hoping it's just a matter of time until they do. I am actually surprised they haven't added a fitness section yet.

Yes, some on Amazon for sale, but I don't know about Prime Video. Many, many on YouTube and if you go beyond the SparkPeople videos it probably runs well into the thousands. There are fitness videos on Netflix, but I don't know if there are any from SparkPeople. Most everything on Comcast on demand is pay per view now. Although I think I read that Spark TV is going away, I think it also said that the in house videos will still be available here as well. Hulu I don't know about.
