S ometimes a trip to the cinema can be more hassle then it’s worth, especially if there are kids involved. Even trotting off to the local DVD rental shop can be a bit of a pain in the cinema seat, that coupled with the idiot sat behind you with the jiggly feet or the lady in front who just won’t stop getting her phone out.
So, what does the discerning movie lover do? Is there an answer to all this kerfuffle? Well, of course there is and one of the best is an amazing service called “Netflix”
I’d pretty much say that most people have a PC or a Laptop in their house, if your reading this article then I’d say that’s a no brainer. If there is the thumping patter of younger feet in the house hold, chances are that there is also a game system, a Play Station 3 or an Xbox 360, and if you are a trendy media prosumer (or slightly more affluent, an Ipad….)
Okay, so we’ve done a technology checklist, let’s get back to “Netflix”. Started by Mark Randolph, based in California it began as a online DVD rental store, with customers selecting films and videos from a huge library of old and new titles. In 2007 Netflix delivered it’s 1 Billionth DVD. Soon after realising the speeds of home broadband, Netflix streaming was introduced, allowing people to select and stream films instantly on a multitude of devices.
With our time being increasingly divided with work, family and chores, what Netflix allows us to do is choose exactly what, how and when we feast on the movies we love, and with affordable monthly subscriptions you’ll never miss out on the latest blockbuster or smash TV series again. Even if you are watching it on your Ipad in the bath!
