As seniors continue to get rid of their cable packages they are turning to streaming services to get value for their dollar. The most popular streaming service at the moment is Netflix. It provides access to thousands of movies, documentaries and televisions shows 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Seniors like that they can choose what they want to watch when they want to watch it. Having the ability to pause movies and shows and not have to put up with commercials has them hooked.
Some of the best features of Netflix include:
- Ease of use. Streaming Netflix requires an internet connection. You can watch it on your computer monitor or set it up to stream through your television using an HDMI cable or other device.
- Variety of price plans. Pick one that suits you best. You can share your Netflix account with others and/or across multiple devices. These devices can be located at the other end of the country if you like.
- Pick your choice of video quality. Standard works well and for many of us who need to keep an eye on our internet usage it’s the one to choose. High quality video will eat up your data plan quickly.
- Create your own list. Search through the movies and television shows available on Netflix and add them to your list to watch later. Netflix will also provide you with suggestions for other movies and televisions shows based on your preferences.
Netflix is especially beneficial for those who are home bound or don’t get out a lot. Seniors can stay entertained and also learn new things from the list of documentaries available.
