Eveyone and their mother is talking about Netflix, but you haven’t subscribed to it yet? If you love watching movies, documentaries and TV series, then stop streaming and discover the world of Netflix.
NETFLIX: EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW
In this article, our Accurate Reviews team will explain what Netflix is, what it offers, what types of subscription are available and which devices can be used to access it. We will conclude with a list the top 10 TV series on Netflix.
What is Netflix?
Netflix is an online platform for on-demand streaming of movies, documentaries, miniseries, TV series and cartoons. Created in 1997 in the United States by Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph, it was initially a simple DVD and video game rental business. In 2008 the company became a real online on demand streaming service, which split from the rental business in 2011. The beauty of Neftlix is that it’s a legal service that works through the Internet, so you don’t have to risk it with illegal streaming and pirated downloads.
Netflix isn’t quite like television, with different shows at different times, but rather a pre-loaded platform with plenty of multimedia content ready to be watched at any time of the day. In addition to what’s already available, note that new content is released regularly – such as the Money Heist part 3 which is being released today. Netflix also give you the opportunity to watch movies in the original language or in another language of your choice (Italian, English, French, Spanish and German as usually always available) with the addition of subtitles (also in different languages).
Is Netflix free or paid?
This is the million-dollar question we have to ask before subscribing to anything! As in all things, try it first and see how you like it! Netflix gives you the first month totally FREE – plenty of time to test-ride it and check out what it offers. After 30 days, if you’re hooked on it – which it’s very likely! – you subscribe. There are different plans available:
- Basic Plan: this is the cheapest at 7.99 € per month and allows afccess to all the available content. The only caveat is that you can play it at one device at a time, from one account only.
- Standard Plan: this is the intermediate plan and is € 11.99 per month. This offers everything in Full HD and the possibility to stream simultaneously on two different devices.
- Premium Plan: this is the last plan that has recently been increased to € 15.99 per month and offers UltraHD / 4k resolution and can be used simultaneously by 4 different devices.
A positive aspect of the last two plans is being able to use a single account on different devices. Get your sister, brother, boyfriend, friend, classmate, neighbor to share the cost! So not only you get the highest resolution, but you save on the subscription cost. In addition to this, Netflix does not impose any contractual restrictions and this allows us to cancel our monthly subscription at any time.
Which devices are supported?
We mentioned that Netflix works online with an Internet connection, what we have not yet said – and that you will certainly like – is that it is optimized for use via desktop (browser) and via mobile. In fact, there is a mobile application that allows use also for iOS and Android devices, aka smartphones, tablets and iPads. Isn’t this amazing? You can continue to watch your favorite TV series from your mobile phone while on the train or waiting in line. Furthermore Netflix is available on Apple TV, Smart TV, TV with TIMvision decoder, on video game consoles such as the Wii, the Ps3, the Xbox and many others.
