Netflix is a streaming giant and a leader in TV and video streaming service, largely replacing cable for many subscribers around the world. It offers a large selection of television shows and movies, with a library exceeding 20,000 feature items. Netflix is continuing to expand its library of award winning original content.
Netflix has over 3,600 movies and 800 TV series available for viewing for their subscribers. Netflix users can access their entire range of shows with unlimited streaming and can have multiple users streaming at any given time. Netflix's original series (such as "Orange is the New Black", "Stranger Things", "Black Mirror", "House of Cards", or "Bojack Horseman") attract even more customers to choose Netflix as their streaming platform. Netflix tends to upload an entire season of a show at once instead of episode by episode. This is attractive for those who would prefer to binge-watch instead of waiting between episodes.
Netflix has managed to maintain relatively reasonable monthly prices. As of May 2019, its most basic monthly price is $8.99. Netflix also offers standard, premium, and family packages. These packages, which cost a few more dollars a month, provide better streaming quality and the availability to stream on multiple screens at once. This is great for families or friends who would like to share their account between multiple people.
Netflix also offers a free, month-long trial which allows potential subscribers full access to their services.
Subscribers can set up separate accounts for multiple viewers, including kids. This allows for parental controls to screen for inappropriate content.
Netflix has an algorithm that recommends movies and TV shows related to content the user has previously watched. A user can search for something to watch by title or genre. The interface is extremely user-friendly and intuitive.
When a movie or TV show is released on traditional television or in the box office, it might take a month or up to a year to be available on Netflix. Netflix has have a lot of great features but it also has a few drawbacks to its services. Mainly, subscribers have to wait to watch new seasons of popular tv shows.
Netflix adds and removes content from their library all of the time. That means a favorite movie or television show is not guaranteed to always be available to stream. Movies and shows are frequently rotated, which means favorites will not always be available. You may be watching a show one day and it won't be available the next.
Netflix needs high internet speeds in order to function at its best. HD is available with Netflix's Standard and Premium packages, but Ultra HD is only available on Premium. This higher viewing quality comes at a higher monthly price.
Netflix is a great platform. I like that it is fast, easy to use, user friendly, good variety of shows, and is fairly priced. I wish the limits on users was a little more flexible so that it is not quite as expensive.
I use to love Netflix. 8.99 a month. It was worth it but now.... over half of the shows aren’t even in ENGLISH or the dub overs are soooo BAD it makes the show bad. Plus they keep going up. 13.99 a month and for what??? Shows we can’t understand! SMH this will be my last month I pay them a dime and I’ve heard so many other ENGLISH Speaking people say the same. Bring on PRIME! At least it’s worth the money you pay and you can understand what they’re saying! Adios netblah!!!
Netflix is obviously a very innovative digital streaming business model. I have been using them since the days of actually ordering DVDs. Netflix provides a great product, one that I am on at least every other night. I will say this: they offer the minimum amount of entertainment to keep me paying what I am paying every month. When the streaming wars started, it was left in the air whether or not Netflix would be something I continue to pay for. Right when I am getting bored with the content on Netflix, they upload something that is just entertaining enough to get me watching again. Kind of sucks, but I guess it works out.
Loved Netflix when it was DVDs through the mail and now streaming is great. Love the new movies every week this year.
We have had Netflix for 10 years we love it the series that they put on like virgin river outer banks sons of anarchy and etc on bad weather days it keeps me entertained
Netflix has so many different shows and movies available for viewing. My personal favorites are breaking bad and peaky blinders. I am not a huge fan of all the Netflix originals movies - but the documentaries have been nice. If you watch a lot of shows, it is a good value for the subscription price.
Best Streaming platform for entertianment. Easy to use and availble to download movies for offline. I love this app
I like that i am able to watch anything that i like whenever i want with no ads interrupting me
Shocked the reviews are so high. We are looking to replace it with something else. Largely we enjoy movies. For the most part the movies they offer are older movies, most of which we have seen. The other problem is there are no on screen audience rating such that you spend more time looking for something decent to watch than it's worth. Lately they have been rating the top ten movies (supposedly) that are available on Netflix. Pretty limited selection within the rated feature movies. Prime makes the process much easier in that all movies and series are rated on screen and ratings are not limited to the Netflix audience only. We simply look for something that looks interesting and limit our choices to features rated 4 stars or better, We have basically given up on Netflix. I called Netflix about this issue a few months ago and was told they are "working on something". Would love to hear suggestions about which of the steaming services is the best in terms of their offering's and the quality of their features. Thus far, Amazon Prime is our primary go to steaming service for the reasons mentioned above. We would be more than willing to pay more for newer movies.
The service is good. Good shows. I like the fact their shows have no commercials.
I have a problem with Netflix because they have the same shows on for 5 to 6 months with out anything new it is ridiculous
I've enjoyed Netflix for a few years now, and I've been ok with some of the price increases that's come pretty regular. However....with yet ANOTHER price increase, new series all of a sudden canceled, it's like....do I really want to get involved in a show that might, might not be here tomorrow. And Netflix takes too long to get current seasons. $17.99 might just be it for me.
Netflix is the best streaming service out there. You can have multiple people in your family watching at the same time and it doesnt slow down your show. They have a large selection to choose from and you can almost always find something to watch. Netflix also has several exclusive shows like Stranger Things that are really good.
Algorithm is very specific and personalised to me, I love all the recommendations! Original shows are amazing as well
Even with the recent price increases Netflix is our go to streaming service! They have the best original content today!
Love all the movie choices and especially the Netflix original movie selections, especially during the pandemic
Netflix is now charging $17.99 for its service. So, that’s not looking out for the customers. I find Netflix to be like any other company in the respect that it’ll take it’s good content/shows and get rid of them and replace them with mediocre shows like “Cuties”. The shows and movies that were my favorite and saved are no longer available. So now Netflix wants to charge $17.99 for a service that provides none of the shows/movies that I enjoyed and have enjoyed. I will be cancelling my account.
We utilized Netflix as our tv provider for the past three years. I felt that Netflix had a good variety of tv shows and movies. I felt that the monthly rate was fair for what they offered. My kids especially love Netflix for their wide range of kids shows.

I love Netflix, they are always coming out with new movies to entertain me and my family. They don't just have movies they also have TV shows and documentaries for all ages. Something that I really like about Netflix is that they are always coming out with new ways and ideas to make streaming your show easier. Like their app or being able to download movies for when you may not have internet access. Netflix is always my first choice for any movie or TV show.
I watch Netflix a lot. It is always disappointing when a series I am watching is taken off.
There are three important things that make Netflix number one. The first is how user friendly it is. My ninety year old grandparents can use it without explanation. The second is the large variety of options available for viewing. The third is the amazing original content that is constantly being erased. This makes Netflix perfect for family fun!
Netflix is awesome because it has a vast amount of choices in quality shows and movies. It also has a very simple set up so it is easy to use. I like how you can create different profiles for each person in your family.
I love how Netflix has a mix of both Netflix originals and TV shows that we all know and love! It is great to binge on your favorite TV shows or watch classic movies that you love. My family and I all love the service that Netflix provides!
Netflix has been a lifesaver for our family through the quarantine situation. The variety of shows offered meets the taste of everyone of our family. The monthly additions keep it fresh. We love that Netflix picked up our favorite show! Their original productions are very well done and highly entertaining.
I love this app so much content. I can be watching any show while folding laundry. I download my favorite shows and can watch them in the car.
The quality of the shows and movies are great. Super clear. One complaint I have is how they remove the most amazing shows and movies and keep the movies and shows that have the worst plot.
I like Netflix because it has so many genres of shows and movies to pick from. It has a wide variety, and it has uncommon videos that you likely can’t find anywhere else. I wish it could have more popular tv shows and movies but otherwise, there’s nothing to complain about.
I enjoy the shows they have in this platform, however i do with they had more variety in the shows.
This streaming device has really been a blessing our family can gather and watch such a great amount of content. There are millions of things to watch really just the best streaming app I have ever used
I love the shows diversity for kids. its great to have something that can have a ton of shows, but block the little kids form seeing the older kid' shows.
Netflix’s content has declined in recent years, as other companies have emerged. However, the original shows are really good.
Great shows! Needs more variety and more recent and common movies and shows! Bring back more shows
I have been using Netflix since I was in high school and I have love it. The only complaint I would have is that I need more Black shows and movies.
Netflix is the absolute best. It has a wide selection of movies and shows to choose from.
I love Netflix! They are always updating their site with new and relevant tv shows and movies and they're customer service is one of the best!
Overall they have a great selections of movies and shows to watch. I just wish we had an option to disable previews of shows on the main screen.
I love Netflix! I love the video quality, Netflix originals, and the monthly additions!
Netflix has a great selection of entertaining thing to watch. No matter what kind of show you are in the mood to watch, you will find something on Netflix.
Netflix is a wonderful streaming site. Me and my older sister have used Netflix for a while and have enjoyed it tremendously. It’s perfect for watching movies or shows without commercials.
Lots of variety! Lots of intentional films which are great. New movies and shows almost every month so there is always variety. The only downfall is that a lot of series get canceled so it sucks not being able to follow the series.
Netflix is the best. We don’t use anything but it. It is way cheaper than other comparable options. I love that you can have individual profiles for everyone in the house.
I like the service overall, the kids really like it.. but I feel like I spend more time trying to find a show worth watching than I do watching anything. With that said we have found it worth keeping it for 5 plus years now.
i like that they have such a wide variety of titles to watch and, the different features that the site includes.
I am a huge fan of Netflix. While they obviously don't have rights to all shows and movies, they have a wide selection to choose from. I am also a fan of the Netflix originals that they have been creating. Most of the shows and documentaries or docu-series are super interesting!
I've been using Netflix for many years, and I love how it has changed with technology. The Netflix original shows and movies are a really great addition and most are really high quality cinema!

Netflix has a variety of TV series, including Netflix originals, that are worthy of watching. They usually don't have the most current year of a series. Some of the original series, Like Stranger Things, are very creative and entertaining. The pricing is reasonable. My biggest complaint is that Netflix tends to have a lot of questionable and filthy shows (e.g. Cuties).
I LOVE NETFLIX! I love their recommendations and the overall layout of the app/website. They are always updating their selection also which I love.
I really like Netflix in the fact they offer suggestions based on what I watch so it gives me a tailored experience. I also like that it has a plethora of options from many different tv networks. However, I do not like by opening the tv app it aggressively plays the show or movie they think I will like.
In the past I have been happy with some of the original content from Netflix. However I am disappointed in the recent content that they have released.
Netflix has great programming for all tastes and sizes! We've binged on many programs and most importantly, the kids love it!
