Things I LOVE Thursday...Netflix

I'm probably really late getting on this band wagon, but I've recently discovered NetFlix and I am really loving it!

We have done the video by mail routine before with both NetFlix and Blockbuster, I wasn't impressed. We always had trouble remembering to get the movies back in the mail & ended up paying way too much for the number of movies we were actually watching. We still haven't improved much in that area, but since Netflix has movies online that you can just watch directly on your computer, we are definitely getting our money's worth this time.

Last week Hubby & I were on a Dr Who kick, we watched about 6 seasons worth of shows dating back as far as the mid 70's. They are a bit cheesy, but it is a show that we both REALLY like. This week we watched most of season 7 of Magnum PI....I haven't even thought about that show in years, but it was good! We've also watched a lot of older movies that we didn't see when they first came out, some of them were good, others very forgettable and that is the other thing I REALLY like. If a movie turns out to be a dud we can simply turn it off, we aren't out any money & we can choose another! They have kids stuff too, which has cut down greatly on the "I'm bored" whining during our recent explosion of wet weather.

This is not a paid endorsement, I'm sure there is some code on our account somewhere for me to refer people, but I haven't figured that part out. I'm really enjoying this feature and wanted to recommend it to anybody who hasn't tried it. You can sign up for a free 2 week trial at their website. We chose the cheapest plan that allows one DVD out at a time & unlimited online movies....we've been doing it for several months now & I'm really LOVING it!

Oh, we LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Netflix. We've been a member for a while now and have watched soooo many movies and tv shows. I enjoy the instant play, esecially since we have the xbox and can watch them on the tv.

It's great!

Netflix rocks in our house! I don't know what we ever did before we signed up for it 2 years ago. I guess we never watched movies.......LOL!

I have always had mediocre experiences with Netflix because we never seem to watch enough movies to make it worth our while, but this online thing might make the difference. Thanks for the heads up!!
