So, there isn't much to be said other than subscribing to Netflix is almost a necessity if you enjoy television. Their original programming is amazing and they have a great backlog of older television shows and some movies. The only thing I am disappointed about is that their movie selection is so slim compared to the DVDs they used to offer.

Netflix is my go-to video streaming service, both on my computer and on my AppleTV's. I also use their DVD-by-Mail system, which has a much, much larger selection of content. The website is laid out well, and their recommendation algorithm, for finding videos you might like based on your previous ratings, is incredibly accurate.

The website has imperfect integration of the Streaming and DVD halves of its business, and sometimes it can be a pain to get information about a movie or TV show without starting the stream accidentally, but otherwise it's a very good example of what you'd want from a movie/TV streaming site: lots of content that's easily accessible.

If they had more available for streaming, and if the streaming library stopping shifting around based on contracts with the studios, this site would be just about perfect.

Ah, Netflix. I wish I could quit you.

Netflix has helped me, and millions of others, develop the unhealthy need to watch every episode of a show ever in a span of three days.

I really like the "Max" addition to help you pick a film or show when you're feeling indecisive. It's pretty awesome how based on your previous choices and reviews, Max typically finds exactly what you're in the mood for.

Sure, I get bummed out that not EVERYTHING I want to watch is on there, but the selection is pretty fantastic overall.

Plus, I like them even more for calling out Verizon. You go, Netflix!

I super heart Netflix! This service has soaked up so much of my free time! Their original content is amazing and they were responsible for a much needed shake-up in the television industry. I have been a subscriber for years and will remain one as long as they remain awesome.

However, they seriously have to can that Max search engine guy that's on the Playstation system. He's almost as annoying as Clippy was.

Great way to catch up on TV shows. It has a decent variety of movies and etc, but I really only watch TV shows on Netflix. They have a lot of options and are usually pretty good about getting new episodes up fairly quickly after a season is done airing on TV. Netflix originals are real gems - a lot better than you'd expect, honestly. Orange is the New Black is great, and I can't wait for the next season, and they're coming out with a Netflix original Series of Unfortunate Events that I'm very excited for. I don't use the mailing movies feature; I just pay to watch shows online, and it's definitely worth the price. My one complaint is that it's kind of confusing now to find the movies and shows you add to your list since they remodeled it a few months ago. Overall a great resource for movie and TV show junkies.

Netflix has become my window into entertainment. Working so much you can get lost in the times of movies and shows. Once in a while i get to just sit and watch all i want of a streaming show. Now if this is good or bad for me, thats not the point! ;)

I have been using netflix for a while now and I love it. The picture quality is amazing and the variety is decent. They have a better selection through their DVD mail service (which I don't subscribe to, but know because when I do searches sometimes it says a movie is only available on DVD). It's about $9 per month and there are movies, t.v. shows, made for t.v. movies, documentaries, and t.v. specials available to watch. They have a good selection of foreign films. For the price charged you get a good value.

Netflix was cool until my ex and I broke up... now I don't feel comfortable using his password.

I don't like that it automatically plays things when you select them just trying to see the info/blurb...

Otherwise I had no problems. :)

I'm a cord cutter and love hulu. They do a great job of providing up to date programming for most shows and the service is quite reliable. Their original programming isn't quite as good as their competitors, but pretty darn close. My main gripes are, 1) No CBS of CW shows, so I have to use differ...

I have been a GQ magazine reader for years and their website has just as high quality as the print publication. Now, specifically, they are doing a great job covering the 2017 political climate in a fair and unbiased way.

Good follow up to the History of Rome. Clear Narrative, I like that he generally sticks to mid-length episodes, but alters the length when needed.
