Netflix Instant-access Binge Viewing


Dallas Oyinatumba | REVIEWER

Oh Great! It’s Thursday night. You’ve got piles of homework to do, soccer practice to attend and your to-die-for TV show to watch at 8:00, but unfortunately you missed it and your DVR is broken. Lucky for you, Netflix is here to save the day.

With Netflix for $7.99 a month you can stream movies and your favorite TV show anywhere and anytime as long as you have Internet access. If you’re not sure about the service, they offer a one month free trial. After that ends, you’re free to cancel at any time.The service is convenient and very inexpensive.  One month of unlimited streaming is equivalent to a 4 piece chicken strip combo at Chick-Fil-a plus tax.

When you first login to your Netflix account, you’ll notice there are thousands of titles (movies and tv shows) to choose from which will instantly excite you; until you’ve looked through all the titles and learned that they have every title but the one you’re looking for. Most ongoing television shows are rarely updated, so you’ll be waiting for a while before you catch that missed episode.

The best feature Netflix has is the similar titles function. Once you’ve finished a TV series, Netflix brings up a bar with titles similar to the one you just watched. I’ve used this function more than once and it’s never failed to find a title that hits the nail on the head completely. If you plan on sharing your account with multiple people, the service allows you to make sub-accounts. With sub-accounts each person can program Netflix to bring up titles that might interest them.

With summer right around the corner, I recommend this service to any one looking for a new TV obsession over the long break. Overall, Netflix is a great service and I give it 4.5 popcorn bowls out of 5.
