Netflix - A Fun Service Worth Trying

I recently purchased what has turned out to be a great birthday gift for BR: Netflix!

After receiving the gift, he took a few hours to rate some 200-300 movies. Then, in addition to the movies he chose as his favorites, Netflix was able to recommend more movies he might like.

Combining his favorite movies and Netflix suggestions, he created a BIG list of all of the movies he'd like to see. Netflix has a HUGE selection of movies and TV series, so this was easy.

Then, Netflix started mailing him the movies and he's been telling everyone how much he loves Netflix ever since. Just this weekend, he signed up both his mom and his dad with Netflix.

Each DVD comes in its own envelope. After you watch each DVD, you mail it back and Netflix sends you another.

You can watch as many DVDs as you want-- or you can keep each DVD for as long as you want. You send them back whenever you feel like it (1 day, 1 month, or 1 year later...) and Netflix will turn around and send you a new DVD from your list ASAP.

As you can imagine, Netflix has been wonderful! There are 3 options you should try:

  • A gift subscription for a friend, family member, or co-worker (you purchase the subscription online and then print out the gift certificate to give them)
  • A subscription for yourself (they're month to month, so you can cancel anytime)
  • A two-week trial membership (excellent choice if you aren't sure if Netflix is right for you)

Go sign up here now!
