If you are somebody that doesn’t already have Netflix you are probably wondering is it worth? I get asked this question constantly by friends who don’t have Netflix and my answer to them is always the same Yes and No.First let me say that Netflix is an excellent service, and I have never had a problem with their customer service, I’ve had a few movies that wouldn’t play and they always send you another copy straight away. Let’s get into the no part first. If you don’t have a way to stream Netflix instantly either through a PS3, X-Box 360, Wii or other method then it isn’t worth it. The smallest plan is $ 8.99 for one dvd out at a time. Redbox allows you to rent a movie for a dollar a day. So if you can’t stream that means you would need to watch nine movies every month to break even, that would mean getting the movie on Monday sending it back on Tuesday and if you’re lucky getting another movie by Thursday as you can see at this rate you’re lucky to get two movies in a week, four weeks in a month equals eight movies a month, so already you’ve wasted money, and that’s if you can repeat the process as soon as possible.
Now let’s get to the yes part. If you can stream it it’s worth the money and so much more, the instant access to many TV shows and movies can fill most of your entertainment needs. You can spend hours catching up or discovering a new tv series and watching it in its entirety without ads. Need a nice relaxing night watching a movie, but not sure what kind of movie your significant other will want to watch that night, no worries you have hundreds to chose from. Don’t want to spend $30-40 buying a complete season of your favorite TV show enjoy access to many complete series with Netflix. Hate paying $60 or more for cable and constantly saying nothing good is on? You’ll never have that problem with Netflix, with hundreds of options, and a schedule that you set, there is always something to watch. So to summarize if you have a way to stream it I would strongly recommend adding Netflix to your entertainment options.
