Netflix is well known as the most popular online movie and TV show streaming service on the web. It has been the go-to site when people want to watch their favourite shows and movies online.
Here is a short overview of the company: Netflix was founded in 1997 by Reed Hastings (CEO) and gradually became the giant it is today. The company provided subscription-based digital distribution in 1999 and continues to do so. As of September 2013, the company has over 40 million global streaming subscribers. Also, the service is currently available in 72 countries and continues to expand their brand worldwide.
Features on Netflix
With Netflix you can enjoy thousands of movies and TV shows on multiple devices at anytime of day or night. There are no commercials what so ever during, before or after the video is streamed. You can enjoy the streaming content on multiple devices ranging from game consoles to smartphones and tablets. Netflix is far from your basic TV service, in-fact you can fast forward, rewind, pause and replay like you would on a DVD player. There are no limits on how many times you can watch a movie or TV episode. The streaming service is much more advanced than a simple multimedia player. You can pause the video on your TV and continue to watch it on another device (phone, tablet, portable console and more much) from where you had previously paused it from.
Netflix offers personalized entertainment for kids and adults. You can find titles through smart search, view titles, ratings and connect to social networks so you can see what your friends have watched as well. When selecting titles, you will be able to view a full synopsis, vibrate poster image, details about the directors and actors and much more.
Netflix would be ideal for family’s that would like to watch different TV shows or movies at the same. With Netflix, you are allowed up to 6 unique authorized ready devices associated with your one (1) Netflix account. With their app you can stream your favourite films and TV series on the go, whether it be on your smartphone, tablet or portable gaming console.
The company also offers HD streaming on many of their titles, so viewers can enjoy 1080P display on their TV and other screens.
Browsing for titles was made as simple for the user so they could find what they are looking for or something similar. You can either find a specific title through the search bar, navigate through 18 different genres and hundreds of sub-genres, or jump into different sections on Netflix that are catered to a specific demographics, like Just for Kids section.
