Netflix is something I've wanted since 2004 or 2005. All these years I have managed (or been unable) to make use of the service but it seems like that will finally change soon. Maybe. I really want Netflix, but do I even need it? I have hundreds of movies currently at my disposal which I have never seen. They just don't feel like anything I "want" to watch. Of course, watching things that I haven't especially been interested in have yielded new favorite films in the past.
There's no need for me to have Netflix but if I did I would make tremendous use of the service. I've been holding a list of movies which I can't obtain elsewhere but are available on Netflix for a while now. It would be quite easy to simply rent out movies every 2 days or so and turn them back in without having to scrounge for titles for about a year. Presumably throughout the year I would come up with even more movies easily available on Netflix and end up never running out of things to get from them.
Would I have time for any other movies? Probably. Sure there are days when I go without a movie but it's not very hard for me to stuff at least one film into every day. For my first year of college I managed that quite readily even with all the other work going on.
So, I really want Netflix. I want a regular package which allows for DVD shipments. The just streaming plan would be fine if only their entire were available. As it stands, just having some titles available is not nearly enough for me. Something I'm curious about is how often and how much their library expands each month. Is it primarily new releases that flood their doors or do they pick up a few older titles as well?
I just want this damn service in my life. What are some pros and cons of Netflix? I don't happen to know but surely I'll find out once the service is something I make part of my daily life.
