We LOVE NetFlix! Our house is kinda old school when it comes to watching shows and they have all the oldies that we like to watch like Saved By The Bell, All the Law And Order Series and seasons, my kids new favorite Power Rangers (the original ones) and they have new shows that my kids like to watch that are not always on demand with our cable. There are also TONS of movies that we can watch on Family Movie Night or ones that hubby and I can watch together for a date night at home 😀
Using NextFlix is easy, you can stream it through your Blue-ray player, Playstation, XBox or Wii, watch it on your computer and if you are on the go and the kiddos are board you can use the FREE app to watch movies and shows on your phone or tablet!
Once you sign up finding the shows you want to watch is easy, you can search for them, select the show you want and then pick what episode you want to watch! One of my other favorite things is that there are no commercials so the kids can watch a show they enjoy with out asking me “Mommy can we get that” when they see a commercial for something they like or want!
We got the FREE trial about 2 months ago just to test it out, since you can cancel at anytime testing it out to see if it works for your family is AWESOME, we decided to keep it (now I am working on getting hubby to agree to downsizing our cable but having a hard time getting him to give up his sports channel). After your FREE Netflix trial if you decide to keep it it is only $7.99 a month, nice and budget friendly 🙂
If you want to compare prices and how Netflix can save you money, when you go to Redbox you are renting a movie for $1 a night, we do family movie night once a week (some times more) and movie date nights we try to do 2-3 times a month. Going to the Redbox for each one would cost us a minimum of $6 a month (not including the gas to get there) and we get 6 movies, for $7.99 we can watch unlimited movies and tv shows and if it is a rainy day and the kids are getting restless we can find a movie with out leaving the house right on Netflix. You can bring it with you on your phone, if you don’t have a portable DVD player in your car (we don’t) you can plug the phone in the car charger and have the kiddos watch a movie (this works well for long car rides, I have each kid watches 1 episode of a show they want to while we are driving and they pass my phone around when they are done with their episode).
If you are not wanting to keep it after the trial period all you have to do is sign into your NetFlix account and cancel, if you do not want to be charged cancel 2 days before your trial ends and you will never be charged!
Sign up for NetFlix and get your 1 Month FREE trial! I am sure you will love it but if you don’t remember you can cancel at anytime 🙂
