I have always had a tough time paying for cable – it’s so expensive. In fact, we usually only have cable during the winter months (football, you know) and then we cancel it during the summer. We have one of the smallest cable packages – it doesn’t include most of the kid’s channels or movie channels that we’d like to have – but we have found Netflix fills that gap for us, and I love that it’s instant, cheap (only $7.99!) and it’s on our terms.
We use Netflix to stream the kids favorite movies – they have nearly EVERY Veggie Tales movie, popular movies like Tangled, TV shows like Dora and Curious George, plus movies and TV series for us. At first we streamed Netflix through our Wii, then we ended up getting a TV with a Netflix app – so it’s all built in and so easy to use. We can even stream movies through our phone when we get desperate!
You can stream from a Wii, Xbox and PS3, along with all these devices . . . including the Nook and Kindle Fire (available on Amazon).
I was excited to see they are offering a FREE one month trial for Netflix right now - you can cancel anytime during the first month and pay no fees. I wanted to tell you about it because you might find that the $7.99 you’d pay for unlimited streaming could allow you to reduce your cable plan AND the amount of DVDs/movies you buy!
Here are the details on the FREE Membership: Your Netflix membership, including a 1 month free offer, will begin when you click on “Start Membership” during the registration process. Simply cancel anytime during your 1 month free membership, and you will not be charged. To cancel, click on “Your Account” and follow the simple cancellation instructions. No refunds or credits for partial months. You may instantly watch on one device at a time. If you are enjoying Netflix, do nothing and your membership will automatically continue at the monthly subscription rate. This 1 month free offer is available to new and certain former members of the Netflix service and cannot be combined with any other offer.
