Netflix Entertainment

While we are disgusted with the recent stock performance of Netflix, we are still fans of the product and the way it works.

Once you decide to use the service, you have the option of watching movies or whatever they offer through either your television or computer.

Through our televisions, we use the Roku solution since it has a remote and interacts not only with Netflix but with other forms of entertainment (i.e., Hulu).  The Roku connects to your television and sound system to provide a great viewing solution for the television.

When on the road, we generally watch Netflix content on our Macbook.  We also maintain a DVD subscription to use in cases where the internet connection won’t work (or if you’re out of the US — we visited Germany and were unable to watch Netflix content).

Setup is a snap and the service works well providing you have a good internet connection.  We currently use Comcast for internet service and rarely have issues viewing Netflix content.  Before you embark on the use of internet ‘streaming’ (sending you a movie, in pieces, across the internet), ensure your internet connection works well and that you have a good wireless router (if you’re using wireless that is — Roku can go wired or wireless).

Never dive into anything like this without research to find the pros and cons.  Feel free to contact us if you think we can help.
