1. No Commercials
I really love watching TV without commercials. They just added 24 to the instant queue and I watched the whole first season in the last week. An hour long show only takes 40 minutes, so you can save lots of time. If you want to watch multiple episodes you can while spending much less time in front of the TV.
2. Plenty of Entertainment
There are so many shows and movies to choose from it is great. It seems like everyone says there isn’t anything good on TV anymore, but everyone still pays for it each month. With Netflix you can watch season after season of shows you actually liked.
3. Watch Multiple Episodes in a Row
If you watch 24 or anything like it, you know how great this can be. Every episode ends in a cliffhanger. Sometimes it is so hard to wait a whole week to find out what happens next. When you have a whole season right there on demand you can watch the next show right now, no need to wait.
4. You Get Movies as Well
There are only a few shows that I really like to watch on TV. Most of the time I would prefer a good movie. With Netflix you get a huge selection of movies, not just what happens to be on TV tonight.
5. It’s Cheaper. Save Lots of Money
From their website:
For $8.99 a month, Netflix members can instantly watch unlimited TV episodes and movies streamed to their TVs and computers and can receive unlimited DVDs delivered quickly to their homes.
That is so much cheaper than cable or satellite. I just have the basic package and it is $25 a month. I’m seriously thinking of dropping it completely and only using an antenna to get the network channels. I know some people who spend $80+ a month just for TV. By the time you add DVR, HD, and movie channels it is ridiculous. At the low end you are saving about $200 a year, and at the high end it is $850. Is it really worth it?
