Why didn’t someone tell me? I’ve being doing this TV thing all wrong!
I am a girl who pays a lot for cable TV. So much that I am embarrassed to tell you how much my cable bill is. *Hangs head in shame. So when I was asked if I wanted to try out a subscription to Netflix I thought, meh, okay. but honestly, I didn’t expect much. I mean, I already have every TV station known to man, how much more could Netflix really have to offer?
I was in for a shock! Netflix is a system that allows you to watch Movies and TV Shows online by streaming right to your TV via Xbox, Wii, PS3 & many other devices. The kicker, it is only $7.99 a month! (and you can often find a one month free trial to see if you really like it)
For the true TV lover Netflix is more then a little bit fun, it is more then kind of okay, it is way more than meh. Netflix will change the way you watch TV! For the cost of renting just one movie on Rogers on Demand you can have an entire month’s worth of Netflix’s services on any number of devices.
After an easy set up, and a low subscription fee you are ready to go. You immediately have access to thousands of movies and TV shows including some shows that are only available on Netflix! Have you heard of “Orange Is The New Black”? I had heard of it, but didn’t know much about it until this weekend, now I know everything! Hubby and I watched the entire season in three days! Not only was the show amazing, so is the Netflix service. Easy to cue up, simple to pause or rewind, and Netflix tells you which episodes you have already watched so there is no questions which show or episode to watch next! This made it easy to tear through our favourite new show!
Another unique feature to Netflix: The Top Picks for Stephanie! (or you!)
When you sign up for Netflix, it asks you to choose 5 titles from those shown on the screen. I picked the titles that would most appeal to my Hubby and I. As a result Netflix “learned” what I/we liked. Amazing! If we like we can set up separate profiles for different members of the family. As we continue to watch, Netflix will continue to adjust their picks. Astounding.
I also love how Netflix is broken down into genres. Thrillers, Romantic Comedies, TV Dramas, New Releases, Horror, Kids programming, etc. are all split up making it easy to hone in on the kind of programming you feel like watching.
We are very busy people, and truth be told, right now, TV is a big source of our entertainment. I am truly happier then I should be to have been introduced to Netflix. If I am going to spend some time in front of the set, it’s going to be watching something fabulous!
Now, thanks to Netflix, and once again due to my FIVE Year Celebration, I have the great fun of giving away one six month subscription AND a PS3 to one reader of How To Survive Life In The Suburbs! Total value of this package is approximately $250.00!
