If you are a movie fan, then you’ve no doubt heard about Netflix. It is arguably the best known DVD rental service on the Internet. In this article, I will examine the benefits as well as disadvantages of using Netflix. I will also provide a link where you can get a 2-week Netflix Free Trial.
In case you don’t know what Netflix is, it is a DVD rental company that allows you to rent DVDs which will be sent to your home. By going to the Netflix website, you can manage a list of movies you would like to rent (the list is called a “queue”). Netflix then sends the titles on your list to you, based on your preferred order as well as based on availability.
You can keep the DVDs as long as you like and send them back using a prepaid envelope when you are finished.
What is possibly the main benefit of using a service like Netflix is the fact that it is very convenient. There is no need to drive to the video store in order to rent DVDs you want to watch. You also have the ability to watch movies online using a new streaming service that makes 17,000 titles available online. You won’t find new releases among the free streaming movies, but there are still many good movies you can watch.
The second advantage of Netflix is that it is cost-effective for people who rent a lot of movies. On most of the membership levels offered by Netflix, you can rent out unlimited titles for one monthly fee.
If I were to name a downside, it would be the fact that you have to plan ahead for which movies you want to watch. Netflix doesn’t work well if you are the type that suddenly decides to watch a certain movie, since you will be left empty handed unless you had the movie delivered ahead of time. This makes it a bit tricky for people who have an eclectic taste in movies. However, on a positive note, Netflix does have a huge selection of over 100,000 DVDs.
Any avid movie fan will not be disappointed with the Netflix service. If you are thinking about giving Netflix a whirl, there is a 2-week Netflix free trial you can use to get an idea of what the service is like.
Use the following link to sign up for the Netflix Free Trial.
