Back in December I decided that I wanted to sign up for Netflix. I went to the Netflix site, checked out the packages, and decided to go with the free trial of Netflix. We’ve been hooked ever since and wish that we had signed up for Netflix sooner. I know, I know, who hasn’t at least tried Netflix?
After our free month trial ended, we decided to go with the $9.99 monthly package that allows unlimited streaming and one DVD out at a time. How that works is you can watch unlimited amounts of movies and tv shows from Netflix.com and also if you have a Roku Streaming Player
or Wii. We have a Nintendo Wii, so we hooked ours up where we can watch the Netflix from the Wii. The packages start as low as $4.99 (which allows one DVD per month but no streaming) all the way up to $27.99 a month, which includes four DVDs out at a time plus unlimited streaming. We’ve found that the one DVD out at a time plus unlimited streaming has worked pretty well for us.
After our Netflix free trial was over, we were hooked. We decided it was well worth the $9.99 a month to pay for the Netflix subscription. We figure that Netflix actually saves us money each month! We don’t go out to spend money watching new movies, we’ve always got something to do if we are bored, and it makes for great movie date nights at home! In fact, we got hooked on the series Dexter and spent many nights watching an episode. We’ve now finished all five seasons and are trying to find a new television series to watch.
I guess I was pretty reluctant at first to sign up for Netflix because that’s one more expense each month that we’d have to pay for. We already have cable, so I figured we probably wouldn’t watch the Netflix too much. It turns out that we actually watch the Netflix more than cable tv anymore, and when we watch cable tv it’s strange because we actually have to watch commercials! It’s nice watching things on Netflix because you don’t have to watch the commercials.
Another feature about Netflix that I like is that I can watch all kinds of old movies that I haven’t seen in years without having to buy them. For instance, I have seen many different Disney movies available that can be sent as a DVD. When you have a DVD out, you can keep it for as long as you want but you can’t get another DVD until you return the original one. Netflix is really fast for shipping out the next DVDs, and we’ve found out that when we mail our DVDs back in, we’ll have the next one in about two days. That’s fast! It’s especially nice when you’re waiting on the next DVD in a tv series.
Overall, I’m super happy we signed up for a free trial of Netflix because we ended up being loyal customers! If you haven’t tried Netflix yet, you should.
