How many of you have subscribed to Netflix? Do you download movies that you haven’t seen in years, TV shows that have long been taken off the air, or the most current movies you can find? I don’t know about you, but I have become pretty fond of the services Netflix offers. For the reasonable price of $7.99 a month, you can watch unlimited movies and TV shows. That seems pretty impressive. One part that I really enjoy is the option to cancel or suspend your account at any time. We tend to suspend our account in the summer as we don’t watch much TV. This is also when a lot of kids movies come out too so we tend to go to those in the local theaters. However you look at it, Netflix seems to be a win, win situation for those who enjoy their TV or movie time. Or are you someone who is annoyed with the instant access and the wading through of the thousands of options Netflix offers? If you are, maybe you’ll enjoy it better once they separate their site into separate movie and TV tabs. This re-design is being tested and might soon be available to all.
If you do subscribe to this service, what do you use to view them – your PS3, Wii, Xbox, PC, Mac, iPad, Apple TV, Smart TV, Blu ray player, Smart Phones, or some other device connected to the internet? It seems the instant access possibilities are quite endless. Looking at the convenience of it all and the $7.99 per month price tag, there’s good reason that Netflix is doing well.
Someday I hope to quit saying this, but I am amazed at the capabilities we have in this day and age. Can you imagine back in the 1980’s if we could’ve downloaded movies and TV shows on our Atari’s? What a thought! We thought the VCR was an amazing invention. Being able to watch a TV show some other time than when it was actually on – how great was that! So what is next for our instant access culture? Are you one that dreams of the days when we have virtual movie theaters in our own homes so that we would never have to leave for even that? Or are you the type that still wants to get out and mingle with the people at the rental stores and movie theaters?
