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.

Netflix is life! I can binge and love all the new shows that come. However, there are some shows that need to come back (man vs wild) and if Hawaii 5-0 goes off I will be livid

I basically live watching Netflix. There are so many options to choose from and it’s nice not having to buy each thing you want to watch. My favorite time is during Christmas because that’s when all the cheesy good chick flicks come out.

Netflix is a wonderful place to catch up on favorite shows and movies. It has a wonderful selection of shows and genres to choose from, which provides a lot of variety for different customers. With all of the different shows to be watched on Netflix it’s a great place to discover new shows to watch! It’s an affordable price which doesn’t break the bank so that is a definite plus! The only downside is that it does have a lot of poorly made shows and films and films with very strong content, do that is something to be wary of if you have children.

I mean, come on. It’s Netflix. Great selection (for the most part) and their holiday movie selection is boppin. (On par with hallmark channel, even!) If you don’t have Netflix, well, that sucks for you. You’re missing out on some great, close to cringey, heartwarming moments.

Netflix I've been using for several years. I enjoy Netflix because they keep fresh content revolving through their menus. I also enjoy some of the Netflix productions like Narcos. I enjoy classic movies and some of the old TV shows that are available as well, like Star Trek. The service has always been reliable and ready to go when I needed it.

Oh Netflix where do I start.. you’ve made the hard times easier and the good times gooder. Ladies and Gentlemen, “The Flix” is more than just a consumer subsidy, it’s your best friend. I don’t mean to personify such an inanitmate object because that’s cheesy. But You know what’s funny, in a way, Netflix personified me and gave me life in a unique way of providing almost unlimited, quality, entertainment. I rate five stars simply because that’s the highest I could give it, but it’s more than just five stars, in fact it’s beyond measurement. It’s more spiritual than anything else. My appreciation for it is as innumerable as the stars, not confined to a meager 5. So take my advice and get yourself a new best friend today who will stick by your side, rain or snow.... preferably actually.

We enjoy the instant ability to watch TV shows and movies and the monthly price is great too! We're happy with Netflix and what they offer for viewing entertainment.

Netflix is such a great company that many people including me use. The only flaw about Netflix is that it does not have every show that I want to see and so sometimes I find disappointment when what I want to watch does not come up. I love Netflix, I just wish that they had more shows and movies for me to watch.
