Netflix – 6 Month Subscription – Closed

My husband is a techy! While it’s great to have all the latest and greatest gizmos and gadgets, it also means we HAVE to get all the latest and greats gizmos and gadgets.

A few years ago, Netflix was all the rage in the US. Hubster drooled over all the lucky Americans who were able to catch their favourite programs with the click of a mouse.  A few years later (like all things) Netflix was finally available for Canadians.  Mr. Technology was pumped.  But, his first reaction was disappointment.  With very few shows or movies available for the Canadian market, Netflix wasn’t as exciting as he hoped it would be.

Fast forward to the present day.  Netflix has had some time to fill thier playlist and on demand movies and shows. It seems as though they have filled the selections right to the brim from old classics to relatively new releases.  There is even a kids section with ALL the latest and greatest selection of shows. Needless to say, when I had the chance to review Netflix, hubster was extremely excited to finally get it into our home.

I wasn’t exactly sure how Netflix worked (why do I need to know all the behind the scenes tech stuff when I have a husband that’s a pro at it?), but once it was all installed and ready to go, I was confused as to why we couldn’t watch it on our main television.  It was at this point I received a technology lesson.  So, if we were going to use Netflix, it had to be one one of our computers or on the tv connected to the playstation 3.  I suppose the option existed to bring the PS3 onto the main floor, but though it was better off remaining in the man cave.  The good news is, hubby is looking for a WD TV Live Media Streamer for our main living area – they just seem to be sold out in the city right now, Netflix must be very popular.  At less than $10/month for unlimited viewing I can see why.

Hubster and Princess are enjoying Netflix, she likes the cartoons and he’s into the movies.  But Mom’s this can be for you too.  We all know how much time we have to enjoy a movie or TV shows (not a whole lot). But when I do have a few minutes to myself, I want to be able to watch what I want to what when I want to watch it.  And that is exactly what NetFlix does.   So, with Mother’s Day around the corner, ladies, this is the gift that keeps on giving year round (My favourite kind of Mother’s Day gifts).

  1. retweeted (@ayshakadri), already liked you on FB and liked Netflix on FB and followed on Twitter!!!! whewww that’s a mouthful!

  2. I get about 2 hours a night, after the kids have been tucked in. I love to watch Grey’s anatomy and House! If there’s a movie worth watching, the hubby and I cuddle up with a nice bowl of popcorn!

  3. Pingback: Netflix for Moms {6 month Membership Giveaway}

  4. I don’t get any time by myself really…maybe a couple hours a week. I’d love to be able to sit down and watch Absolutely Fabulous episodes over and over!

  5. I get plenty of alone time and i just found a new series through a giveaway i won> It is called Breakout Kings. I won the first series and today when I went to Netflix for the 2nd… Yep, my 30 day free trial was over. So this giveaway is perfect timing

  6. I get lots of time to myself. But not a chance to watch what I would like. So would love to watch all kinds of movies on my computer.

  7. most of the time i get for myself is on the weekend. I’d love to rewatch arrested development.

  8. as my kids have gotten older i get alot more time to myslef than before, I love to watch supernatural and vampire diaries, those would be nice to see whenever I want

  9. I get a couple hours 2-3 days a week when my daughter is at school, but then sometimes I’m alone a lot when hubby is in the field (he’s military.) I really want to watch True Blood, which I think is on Netflix now!

  10. I like to watch reality tv shows and game shows. Usually on wednesday and thursday nights.

  13. I actually get time in the evening, which is nice. Right now Castle is my favourite show, although American Idol and Hoarders are my guilty pleasures.

  14. Make a comment below about how much time you get to yourself, what movie/show would you like to be able to watch whenever you want to? As a mom of three I don’t get too much time to myself. I would love to watch survivor whenever I want.

  15. I have about an hour in the evening after the girls go to sleep. I just purchased a roku and this would be awesome to use with it!

  16. We actually already have netflix and love it!! Im always checking out what’s new and netflix seems to add new content weekly. If there was a show I wish netflix would add it would have to be Grey’s Anatomy. I use to be a BIG fan of the show. But now having kids and going to bed by the time it airs I’ve missed the last couple seasons. 🙁

  17. My alone time is usually at night. With Netflix, I would be able to watch movies that are rated highter than “G”!

  18. I have 3 kids so I get no time to myself, but I do enjoy reality TV so I think netflik would be a good way for me to catch up on all the shows I have missed at my own pace.

  19. My time to myself is after the kids go to bed. It varies each night depending on whether I want more time to veg out or to get more sleep. I love watching Nurse Jackie

  24. I’m kinda addicted the Madmen. … i love to get away by myself to watch that and drool over Don Draper

  25. I don’t watch many tv shows but I love movies new and old. I’d love to be able to watch an old classic after the kids went to bed or a newer release.

  26. I don’t get much time to myself, but when I do I like to watch shows like Bones and Fringe (which aren’t appropriate for my 2 year old at all!)

  27. I really don’t get much time to myself. Maybe an hour during the week and a couple of hours on the weekend.
    I could watch dirty dancing over and over again.

  28. Have been wanted to get a streamer and get going for a long time. Love all movies
    in all time frames.

  29. I have quite bit of time. I would love to see movies that I have always wanted to see but haven’t, especially the classics.

  30. I have quite a bit of free time which I pass on my iPad and computer. I would love to be able to watch GCB and Desperate Housewives whenever I want.

  31. I get every other weekend to myself as the kids go to their dads, I get to watch all the things I pvr’d then like grey’s anatomy or watch movies.

  32. I get about 2 hours to myself at night after everyone else goes to bed. Merlin is my absolute favorite television show. I love to watch the old movies, especially the ones with Katherine Hepburn or Doris Day. It would be great to be able to pick a movie or series at my convenience. Good luck to me! lol

  33. I dont have much time watching movies or shows I would like, being a single stay at home mom of 3 & 4 year old girls doesn’t sitting for a long period of time, besides we do like to be outside alot. BUT I really do miss being able to watch some adult t.v. 🙂 Having this netflix Membership would allow me to catch up on ALL the Great JUNK I ve been Missing the past few years!!!

  34. I don’t get a lot of time to myself but I love to watch silly comedies like “Dumb and Dumber”. Something you don’t have to think about.

  35. I get plenty of time to myself, but usually tv time is whatever hubby chooses. I’d like to be able to watch my girly shows (ex. Desperate Housewives) or some chick flicks….

  36. I put my child to be between 7 and 8, after that it’s my time. I really got hooked on HBO and pay channel type series. It started back with sex and the city, capadocia and now Game of Throwns and Spardacus. Non of these which are appropriate for my kids, so early bedtime is much appreciated.

  37. I get a couple hours a night to myself, I would love to catch up on Desperate Housewives!
