Netflix. Is it worth it?

With all the new and exciting shows that are constantly coming out, it is hard to find time to keep up with them all. One option would be to get Netflix. This is a touch choice though and many people need to think thoroughly before deciding if Netflix is it worth it.

Pros and Cons

Many people struggle when asking themselves, "Netflix, is it worth it?" At £5.99 per month, it does not seem like much, but that depends on how much use you get out of it.


One of the great things about NetFlix is the flexibility it gives you the viewer to watch shows in your own time and as many as you please. If you have been craving a Breaking Bad marathon, go for it!

NetFlix also keeps track of where you left off in an episode so it is ready to go when you have time to continue. It also provides recommendations of similar shows or films that you might be interested in.

It offers high quality viewing on any device in the house whether that be tablet, computer, phone, or television.


There are also a few cons as well. If you don't have enough time to catch up and watch any of the shows, there really is no point in subscribing. It would make more sense to purchase it when you will get the most use out of it.

It is addictive. You may innocently sit down and think you will just watch one episode, but that quickly becomes two, then three, and before you know it, you are at the end of the season.

It is also important to check what shows they do offer. There are many top shows that are not shown on Netflix, so do a bit of research and make sure your favourite show is shown.


If you are still asking yourself, "Netflix, is it worth it?", take the time and try it out for yourself with the first month trial for free. This will give you the opportunity to see if this fits into your lifestyle and whether or not it would be good value for you.
