Claim this Profile

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.

We have had Netflix for several years. Love it! We love the content offerings, and we love many of the new Netflix exclusive content. The only thing I would change is hiding explicit video content/cover images unless the subscriber checks that they want to see that. I don't like browsing through titles and having to see lurid pictures.

I love netflix, They have updated movies as well as the classics. They allow for binging without stupid commercials. Netflix has changed how family does movie nights. I've never had to call them with issues so I don't know how their customer service is which probably means they are awesome.

Netflix is a fantastic streaming service that only costs 8 dollars for the basic subscription. The streaming is generally very quick, I've only experienced minor problems in streaming speed and consistency. The only other issue that can be noticed is sometimes the selection of movies/T.V shows that Netflix houses are a tad underwhelming and appear unappealing. But it also houses majesties such as Stranger Things and The Crown.

I absolutely love Netflix for the most part. They have so many great shows and lots of Netflix Originals but they don't have everything that I like to watch. It is not that expensive. I can afford it. I like the downloading shows and movie features. It is nice to be able to watch shows anywhere without needing to be connected to WIFI. I like how they are frequently changing their shows and adding new ones. I rarely get bored of Netflix.

Netflix has a great ease of use, especially because it is connected to our cable provider so we can access it just like any other program. Also, we get it free with our cell phone plan, so it's hard to not be happy. I would use Netflix 100% if it had live sports programming. It mostly caters to the tv series watchers and not as much to sports and movies (which is what I watch more of). However, for the price, it's nice to have.
