Netflix

11 posts in this topic

I've been a consistent Netflix customer for almost nine years now; first starting with the DVD subscription plan and then later ditching it for streaming only plan when I realized that I was keeping a DVD for a month at a time and not actually watching it :/

Now we have just Netflix streaming for our three devices (including two PC's and a ROKU). Everyone is happy with the Netflix movie/show selection.

The only real complaint I have is the massive volume of episodes per show. ikr? Most people would say that's a good thing. And, really it's no big deal for me as an adult as i know how to set limits on my free time for TV watching. But my daughter is over whelmed by the huge catalog of episodes for kids shows. And, it's really difficult to put limits on her when she finds a show she likes as she wants to finish them all. Not a big deal if the show was only two episodes long. But most are well over 40 episodes spanning multiple seasons. You see where I'm going. :/

So anyway, that's more of an internal family issue than Netflix problem. There are no timers that limit how long Netflix can be run. Not that Netflix would limit users. But I want that option. Is it possible? I don't know. I just know it would be useful.

I have tried setting parental controls on Netflix so she won't be able to access certain shows (such as above PG) but then it takes about a day to reset so the adults can watch Netflix. I want the option to switch users on my ROKU. That's possible on the PC so why not ROKU?

Tiny issues, for the most part Netflix is a very good thing. Lots of educational shows to choose from. Not to mention how Netflix has brought me closer to good friends c:

Over all, extremely happy with Netflix. Very high quality video. Love the way you can skip from the end of one episode directly to the start of the next (that picture in picture). Very convenient. So much I love about this service.

The best $8.00 I spend every month.
