I just want to say that I’m glad I did the 30 day trial of Netflix. When the 30th day came of my trial, and I got cut off of instant TV shows and instant movies on my computer *AND* DVDs delivered to my house- I REALLY FELT THE VOID!!!
I panicked and got online right away to buy a month of Netflix! I love watching TV shows and movies when ever I want! You can lay in bed and stream movies and shows! You can even hook your computer up to your TV and watch movies on the big screen too!
It is endless fun with Netflix! I highly recommend! I’m so done with Blockbuster and the Redbox!
