Does Netflix Really Work?

Watching movies is a favorite pastime and stress-reliever. This is the hobby that Netflix capitalizes on. Netflix offers mail-based or streaming rental of DVD for homes that promises to be compatible with any entertainment device. At a fixed monthly rate, Netflix claims that subscribers can start watching any movies as well as TV shows of their own choice through live streaming devices such as PCs, laptops and the likes online. There is said to be around 700 devices that can actually use Netflix to watch their choice of both old and recent movies at any given time and place. Netflix also features compatibility with gaming devices such as Xbox360 or Playstation 3 in order to function as an online streaming device. Users can choose to get just the DVD by mail service, just the instant streaming movie service, or both.

Yes - Love it for years

My daughter introduced me to Netflix many years ago. Not only can you catch up on some series current on TV, it’s been great source of entertainment for my grandchildren along with educational content as well. I love the selection it offers, as well as timely new releases. I love it as an addition to my current TV channels.

Yes - Very Good Value

For $7.99 each month, I get more and better selections than from the satellite subscription that costs me $90 a month!

We use the streaming service rather than the DVD-by-mail service. At first, I was dubious about how the quality would be on our 42″ HD TV. Fortunately, the quality is GRAND as good as Direct and DISH high-def broadcasts and we have NO complaints. Yes, there are occasional (rare, really) glitches in the streaming, but even regular TV broadcasts have those from time to time. We stream via our wi-fi capable DVD player, but can always fall back on our laptop with a HDMI cable if we need to. Both methods work equally well.

We love the fact that NetFlix offers MANY old (and often obscure) movies, some of them have turned out to be real treasures! Also, it’s great to be able to pick up a previously missed TV series (i.e. “Law & Order” or “All Creatures Great & Small” for instance) and watch every episode from every season at our leisure. It is a wonderful way to catch up, or just see them all again! NetFlix is FANTASTIC for finding something interesting & entertaining to watch on nights when DISH hasn’t got squat (which is more often than not). If it weren’t for TCM and our local network channels, I would dump DISH completely and go with NetFlix completely.

I highly recommend NetFlix streaming service. It’s the best buy around for entertainment!

Netflix has so many movies to choose from. Any genre and also includes TV classics. I answered a few questions regarding my taste in movies and TV, and based on those answers they give me their suggestions. The search engine is simple to use and makes it easy to find the movie titles you want. I also appreciate that I can change the order of which movie comes. They also keep track how long a movie will take to arrive, so you never have to wonder when it will arrive in the mail. I am completely addicted to Netflix and hope everyone gets the chance to have it.

I love Netflix. I can watch old tv sitcoms that were a favorite of mine but that I missed episodes on because I couldn’t watch it when it was on. Not all of it is available so you may have to pay to rent the CDs out. It was better before when they charged $9.99 to rent videos out and see movies online but then they separated the service and now have a separate charge for each service. I can understand that though and have now just opted to stay with watching movies online. Great service! Beats Blockbuster any day!
