DO YOU NETFLIX?


I'm sure you have all heard of this company.

You know, rent a video online, and it gets to your house in ONE DAY!

There are no late fees, and you just drop it in your mailbox when you are done watching it.

I have the "three out at a time" plan, plus we get to watch videos that are Instant Play on the computers, and on TV! It's genius I tell ya! Since we have wireless in the house, all three computers can be playing different movies at a time, and it doesn't count as a rental!

Since we don't have cable, or regular TV for that matter, this is the next best thing!

I have been able to catch up on 24, my kids LOVE The Brady Bunch, we've watched episodes of The Greatest American Hero, and even The A-Team!! Those of you who are around my age can totally relate to these shows!

All this, for $18 a month!!

If you have been curious about Netflix, I totally urge you to try it. If you are like me, and take WEEKS to return a movie, this is the plan for you!!

I love Netflix! it is great for those of us that, mmm... sometimes forget to return a movie the next day to something like redbox...

Just watched a cute movie called Stolen Summer... about a Catholic boy that is on a quest to convert the Jewish so they can get to heaven.. in this 'quest' he befriends a young Jewish boy who is suffering from lukemia...I believe its an instant play also..

I've always wanted to try Netflix. We have these things called Red Boxes out here. They are literaly vending machines for dvds...mostly newer releases. You pay 1 dollar for 24 hrs. Yeah...there are 3 redboxes right across the highway from me and it still takes me at least two days to return them!

Gonna go to Netflix....

I love netflix and now that they finally have streaming through the Wii, we can take advantage of the watch it now stuff. I just have to get a wireless router now, lol.

We have it, but it's mostly for my husband since I rarely even watch movies anymore.

I didn't know you could see old tv series too! Might be worth it.

Once upon a time we did it through Blockbuster...but it's so very different now that you can stream them onto your computer. Wow no tv or cable...kudos for you...not sure we could do that! But $18 is a lot less than my cable bill! lol

I used to love Great American Hero!!

I haven't tried it...but I just might so that I can do a 24 marathon because I have never seen the first 2 seasons.

Leslie said...

We use Netflix, too. We love it! You're great advertisement for it!

Amanda said...

I have never used it... we considered it for awhile, but figured that it could wait until we saved a bit more money... but you REALLY make me want to sign up now! :)
