Netflix was the leader in TV streaming service, largely replacing cable for many subscribers around the world. They offer a large selection of television shows and movies, with a library exceeding 20,000 feature items.  Netflix has many original series, providing even more content to their subscribers.

The Good

  • Large viewing selection
  • Free trial
  • Affordable price

Large Library Selection

Netflix has over 3,600 movies and 800 TV series available for viewing for their subscribers.

Low Monthly Price 

Netflix has managed to maintain relatively reasonable monthly prices, charging $9.99/month.  If users want to stream on more than two devices they can pay $11.99/month plan.

Unlimited Streaming/Multiple Users

Netflix users can access their entire range of shows with unlimited streaming and can have multiple users streaming at any given time.

30-day Free Trial

Netflix offers a free, month-long trial which allows potential subscribers full access to their services.

Customized Accounts and Controls

Subscribers can set up separate accounts for multiple viewers, including kids. This allows for parental controls to screen for inappropriate content.

Predictive Recommendation System

Netflix has an algorithm that recommends movies and TV shows related to content the user has previously watched.

Netflix has a large list of benefits to their service.  They blazed the trail for streaming TV, and have an amazing selection for their subscribers.  As a part of their robust library, there is a great selection of Netflix Original Series, such as "Orange is the New Black", and "House of Cards".

In addition, the monthly price for Netflix subscribers is extremely reasonable, at $9.99 per month. Potential customers have the ability to try Netflix's services free for 30 days before signing up.

The Bad

  • Long wait periods
  • Content changes
  • Viewing quality

Fluid Streaming

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.

Viewing Quality

Netflix needs high internet speeds in order to function at its best.  Also, HD is available with Netflix's Standard and Premium packages, and Ultra HD is only available on Premium.

Long Waiting Periods

With some of your favorite shows that are currently on air, subscribers may have to wait months or even a whole year before a series is made available.

Netflix does have a ton of great features but they also have a few drawbacks to their services.  Mainly, subscribers have to wait to watch new seasons of popular tv shows. Also, 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.  Also, you have to pay more monthly for a higher viewing quality.

The Bottom Line

Overall, Netflix is generally more affordable than other providers, commercial free, plays in stunning HD, and offers a free trial period for potential subscribers to test out their services. In addition,  Netflix has several great original series, an excellent recommendation algorithm to help you find TV shows and movies that you'll love, and the capability to create different user accounts along with parental controls.  The main drawback is streaming quality and having to wait for new seasons of current hit TV shows.

I really enjoy Netflix. there is a huge variety of shows to choose from. I like that it keeps track of previously watched shows. There is also a wide variety of age ranges available as well. the one thing I wish that Netflix would do is give the choice of watching censored shows, for that reason im giving it 4 stars and not 5.

Netflix is one of our top favorite companies to stream with! You will never run out of things to watch as the options are endless. My only reason for not giving a full 5 stars is that I wish that there were more shows/movies available that are free. So many have to be paid for which is kind of disappointing.

It's so nice to have Netflix as an option when the kiddos are bored at home. I like that we can set up different user accounts so that my husbands movie preferences don't affect the kid choices. I do wish they had more movie options (that are actually good movies). It seems like there are lots of mediocre quality movies and not the really good ones).

I’ve been a happy customer for years, but the past couple years they’ve really set themselves apart with all the Netflix-exclusive series and documentaries that make the increasing service price worth it. Netflix is probably watched in my home more than any other service because the kids can pick a TV series and watch from the beginning season. The blockbuster movie options aren’t great, so if that’s what you’re looking for you’ll be disappointed, but I am a happy customer that will not be canceling anytime soon.

The functionality of being able to stream tv shows on this site is why I gave it 4 stars. There are hit shows like Friends, The office and host of others that myself and my kids have frequented over the years. Oh, and I really enjoy the recent update (about 2 years ago) where you are able to download certain movies to your device. The download has a duration that expires, but its still been a great addition. I didn't give it 5 stars because the movie selection could improve.

Netflix is one of the best streaming services around. Thy have great service and a large variety of movies and shows, so there is something for everyone. One thing is shows cycle off and on Netflix pretty frequently. I understand that they sign contacts that only allow them rights to a show for so long but there are some very big shows that many watch that get taken off with what seems like little fight from Netflix to keep it on their platform.
