I’ve often mentioned that we live a ways away from most vestiges of “civilization”…we don’t just run out to the grocery store or the drug store on a whim. We almost never get out to the movies and we don’t have On Demand. Last week, we discovered Red Box…it is right in the grocery store, making checkout and return a breeze. It just meant that we had to keep the movies for 3 to 4 days before returning them, which seemed a bit wasteful. Then, this weekend, a Netflix ad caught our attention. My daughter and my former boss use or used Netflix extensively. But we never even investigated it, just plodded on not seeing movies.
Well, friends, we signed up for Netflix through our Wii yesterday and — oh, my…free for a month, then $8/month, we have movies, old and new; we have documentaries; we have possibilities we have yet to even explore…so exciting. Yes, I know, Netflix is old hat and we are old fogies. But please share with us some things we should enjoy with our new toy. And also let me know if we should shell out an additional $8/month to be able to get DVDs by mail. Netflix says there are more TV programs available on DVD than via our Wii…worth it or not?
P.S. Today is a perfect day to explore Netflix…it seems as if winter has finally arrived…our day started with beautiful snow…light snow, but it is accumulating a bit…love it!
