In the first quarter of 2022, Netflix, a TV and movie-streaming service, had approximately 221.64 million subscribers. Are you one of them?
After you vote in today’s poll, please leave a comment and tell us what you’re currently watching, or something you recommend, on Netflix. We do work most of the time… but when we’re not working we do like to watch a movie or two. Wink. (Publisher Chuck and Editor Emily are just about done with the final season of Ozark… are you watching?!)
Ozark, The Sinner, Kominski Method, etc. Best show ever, Breaking Bad! We use Prime and Paramount a lot as well. Wife is a big Star Trek fan.
Ozarks (never a dull moment), Downton (Absolutely Charming), Rebellion (historic tale), Blacklist!
Yes but may cancel
Yes, have used it for years, and only got rid of my DVD plan (on top of the streaming) when movie production was halted in the COVID lockdown. Sadly, I don’t get to watch it that much, even though there are a LOT of titles I want to see. Just don’t have the time to watch TV that I did when I first retired – way too many projects going on!!
Only as a freebie from T-Mobile. If I didn’t have the freebie I wouldn’t have it.
I answered no, DW was a subscriber until they started showing some R rated shows.
Cancelled Netflix last year. The offerings were getting too dark. [No, I am not a racist. I am referring to style, like the difference between Batman and Superman.] Then, as I came out of my post Covid reverie, I got bored and signed up again. I find more in the way of entertainment on Netflix, now. But I have noticed yet another disturbing trend: “wokeness”. If this continues, I will be cancelling again. I am too old and set in my ways to appreciate pregnant men. My viewing styles are historic drama, military history, science fiction [the seriously scientific type, not fantasy.], and pretty much anything French or English. I would suspect that almost any worldly man from the Vietnam era would have the same tastes.
And one more thing: I am hearing rumors of ads before the end of the year. That would cause me to cancel yet again. There are too many free alternatives where I can watch ads. I don’t need to pay $35/month if they are forcing ads on me.
I have been a Netflix subscriber since 1999, the first time I see an ad I’m canceling.
I can see Jeopardy and the Andy Griffin show on over the air TV.
Came lifetime free basic when changing carriers to T Mobile
I never have. I don’t even have cable or satellite. I get 42 channels free off an antenna so what little TV I watch gives me plenty of variety. The money I save goes toward RVing.
you only need internet to get Netflix these days.
I know, but I have a life away from the TV and internet. Being handicapped with MS, I’ll eventually end up being a couch potato, but I want to keep moving and enjoy my life as long as possible.
I forgot to mention: PUBLIC LIBRARIES. Most RVers (even Full Timers) can join a Public Library. Many (MOST?) have joined the 21st Century and offer a variety of online resources including but not limited to video streaming, audiobooks and more. After you’ve signed up, all you need is a way to get online (laptop, tablet, cellphone etc) Each participating library decides what it can afford to offer its’ members. Services like hoopla digital, Kanopy, Libby, Overdrive and others give members a WIDE range of streaming / downloading choices. Check your home library to see what they offer. Many libraries will allow members of other libraries to use materials in their collections. From time to time, I’ll buy a DVD and, after I’ve watched it (often more than once) I’ll donate the disks I’m ready to purge from my collection. These disks have always been gratefully accepted by the receiving library. A true example of “what goes around, comes around”.
Dropped Netflix when they started doing PORN
Netflix doesn’t have porn. Are you sure you are using the correct app??
I have a STANDARD Netflix subscription through T-Mobile (NO charge to me). If T-Mo stops that promotion, I would NOT pay for Netflix. I also have other “freebie” streaming services through other carriers / companies and, should said suppliers stop offering free streaming, I would also DROP them as well.
As full time travelers, nearly all our tv time is Netflix and Amazon Prime for the little time we’re in front of the screen in the evenings. We generally watch series vs movies. Absolutely loved Ozark, Inventing Anna, Bloodline, Kominski Method and various others. Since we don’t use cable, paying for Netflix is very worth it for us.
I canceled after a number of years when in my belief their programming took a very negative, degrading direction.
I heard about it years ago. I think that they sent subscribers DVDs back then. I never had any interest in joining. I rarely (once every 5-10 years) see an advertised movie that piques the slightest interest in me.
Yes I get NetFlix but it’s a perk from T-mobile so they pay for it.
Yes, but thinking about cancelling soon due to price increase and poor programming.
I had to say no because your poll (I think) applies only to the streaming version. We subscribe to the DVD version. We tried the streaming, but found the movies in our DVD queue were not available on the streaming version, except for one. We still use Dish for our TV service. Not going to pay for more things we wouldn’t watch & not ready to completely give up on the networks yet.
