Stick,

My wife and I use the dvds that are delivered to our house from Netflix. Sometimes we watch 2 movies a week, especially during the Winter. I tried streaming for one night. After 30 minutes, I could not find anything we wanted to watch. We immediately switched back to dvds. There is a difference on what you can watch streaming versus dvds. My observation is that streaming is mainly tv series and dvds are movies. We have enjoyed many excellent movies that we would have not otherwise seen. I let my wife select all movies, so I can stay out of trouble. At $8.55/ month it is a lot cheaper than going to the movie theater.

We have Netflix because we like a couple of series that are only available there. However, we seldom find anything else we want to watch on there. We find ourselves turning to Amazon for movies. Better selection of movies there.

My daughter has Netflix and is constantly telling me about some show she watched and telling me to login with her creds to see what she's seeing. She's 20, I'm not. I have yet to login to see anything but have thought about it a couple of times if that counts. We don't watch TV - have no cable or satellite service - but we do watch Amazon Prime movies once a week or so.

That doesn't help you much - sorry.

My son and I use Netflix pretty extensively. Once we find a tv show or series we like, we can watch them consecutively (binge watch) daily during supper and keep current on continuing plots. I agree that it's hard to find much that's interesting when you can only see what choices come up on the normal startup screen.

But you can get a much more extensive selection by going here:
https://netflixcodes.me/
There you can get titles that don't show on the normal screen. We have found a lot of good documentaries there. Also, if you watch from your computer (or connect yuour computer to your tv) there is a list of Netflix codes here:

It seems I never finish what I

I've got Netflix at home - for $10 a month, it's not a bad deal. There are some shows we like that only show on Netflix. My daughter logs into my account too. You can set up user names so that each person can have their own list of programs based on what they like to watch. Another bonus is that while I'm away from home, as I am now, I can still log into Netflix and watch. All in all, it's worth the $10 for us.

Some folks call me Vince - other folks call me...........

We don't watch network TV and spend most of our viewing time on either Netflix or Amazon for movies and TV series. I was delighted to find recently that the old Yancy Derringer TV series was available on Amazon Prime. 60 years later they're still fun to watch. Plus we enjoy the range of foreign films and TV shows we have found on Netflix.

We've taken out a trial subscription but as yet have not checked it thoroughly other than to say the service came "highly recommended for documentaries".

I have and use Netflix quite a bit. They have several original shows that I enjoy watching. I actually think the production quality on many of the shows is better than those from the traditional TV networks.
