    Default Netflix - is it worth it?

    We have finally got proper Internet, so am looking at Netflix. Is it good? Is there lots of shows available? Is it just new stuff, or older things as well? I read a while ago that the Aus content isn't huge, but not sure if that's changed or true! If it is, can you join the US site for all the shows?

    Yes.

    Yes.

    Old and new stuff. Plus Netflix exclusive shows as well.

    So much content. So so much content. Excellent value too.

    You can access US but it's a bit of a palaver.

    You can't access US reliably anymore. Netflix have outsmarted most of the options currently available, so unless you have a degree in IT I wouldn't expect to be able to.

    There's a LOT less than US content. But there's still a loooooot of content. Definitely more than a months worth anyway, so just try it and cancel if it's not for you. There's no contract.

    Default Netflix - is it worth it?

    Yeah my dh has a degree in IT lol and we have used both US and AUS Netflix and tbh I prefer the Aussie one as it has more British stuff and Aussie movies and TV like the wiggles. Our content isn't that far behind now, it is improving. Heaps not worth the screw around and reliability issues to get US Netflix.

    Definitely worth the $10 IMO.

    Yes, I think Netflix is worth it

    I've recently cancelled it temporarily as I have subscribed to Stan. I found I'd already watched a lot of the stuff that interested me on Netflix, and Stan is really growing and has some good content.

    I'll swap back to Netflix membership once I've watched a bunch of stuff on Stan.

    Im still not 100% convinced on Netflix. I do like it but I find there are alot of sci fi/ vampire tv shows that dont interest me. Im finding it hard to find good tv shows I want to watch but I do like their documentaries and the kids enjoy it
