I think Netflix was 6.99 when I first signed up and you could get 2 DVDs in the mail and the streaming was mostly just documentaries, B list movies, and old TV shows. Now it’s 13.99 without 4K and no DVDs.
I'm blown away by the sheer quantity of content. Several nights this week I've sat there just scrolling, having "oh, THAT'S on here!" moments. For this price I'd get it even if I wasn't a parent. With three young kids, it's an absolute no brainer. I looked at my oldest son the other night and just laughed and said, "dude, you've got it made". All this content, at our fingertips. Just blows my mind.
Also laughing at all the $$$ I've spent over the years collecting each season of the Simpsons since season 1, and here they all are. Just incredible.
I said before I like the social aspect of a drip release as opposed to a binge dump.
It’s honestly a little smarter to keep the buzz going longer. Look at GoT or Breaking Bad. You get 10 to 16 weeks of hype and conversation. Where as Stranger Things drops and the buzz is over in about 3 weeks after everyone has binged the whole thing.
