Netflix Informative - Not Bad For The Price!
My wife and I never have time for movies any more. Between work and the kids we just find enough time to eat, sleep and sometimes get dressed.
Our thing is we love shows. We like movies, TV shows, documentaries. You name it. We finally bit the bullet and got Netflix. I think we pay like $9.99/month or something like that.
So far I have been pleasantly surprised by how well the service works. For our priced package we can have unlimited movies per month, but you can only have one in your possession at a time. You can go online and fill up your "queue" and the movies just show up in your mailbox. Once you are done you drop it back in the provided envelope and drop it back in your mailbox. A few days later whatever movie is next in your queue arrives. You keep them as long as you like. You just won't get another movie until you return that one.
Beyond the DVDs, also included in the price is access to watch movies and shows online through your computer (or in our case, we use our iPad or iPhone). Not all movies are available to watch online, but they have a decent selection. New stuff seems to only be mail-order disc, but they have a pretty decent catalog of older movies & shows. We can pull up a cartoon for our kids at anytime/anywhere. It lets you stream up to 2 movies/shows at one time, so sometimes I will be watching something downstairs and my wife will have a show on with the kids upstairs. It also remembers where you left off in a movie if you leave or close it down. Next time you pull up the Netflix app on your iPad you can just start up where you left off. Pretty cool.
If you spend any amount of money at brick and mortar movie rental shops I would recommend looking into Netflix. Saves you so many last minute trips to return a late movie. You only need to walk out to your mailbox. =)
