What Are The Benefits Of Netflix Steaming Videos?

Netflix
Recently it was discovered that 1/3 of the bandwidth used up in the United States was due to the company Netflix which now is the top video streaming service of movies and television shows.

That massive amount of bandwidth shows just how popular streaming is and why it’s so important for Netflix. Netflix leads the pack of streaming videos now outdistancing the former superstar of streaming, YouTube. Nowadays watching streaming movies on Netflix is one of the most common of entertainment pastimes.

Netflix provides both DVD rentals and/or streaming. They have a large library of videos to stream and the benefits of the streaming are that you can watch a movie or television series without the inconvenience of ordering via the mail and waiting for DVDs to arrive and going through the nuisance of that venue for looking at flicks you want to see. Netflix has the option to subscribe to streaming videos and/or DVD rentals. This streaming option makes for lots of convenience and not only that but it allows for easier searching for content and just click and you’re good to go.

Not everyone likes the streaming option and for good reason too. First of all, Netflix doesn’t have anywhere near the number of first run movies available for streaming. It’s so frustrating that many people have left Netflix because of it. Every once in a while they’ll fork over some new release but don’t expect to find top rated content available for streaming. Even many of the classic first run movies aren’t available for streaming and that has angered subscribers no end. For example the classic Godfather movies. They’re not available for streaming. Once in a great while one or two will be. Same goes for the Star Wars movies. You won’t find them available for streaming either and they’re the top movies people want to stream.

Same goes for television shows. Don’t expect to find the HBO hit show “The Sopranos” on streaming. It’s just not going to happen. So the advantage of streaming falls off if you want to see the top notch first run movies and shows. Netflix saves them for DVD rentals instead.

You’re not all lost however as there are some great classic flicks on Netflix that you can stream. Same with classic and present TV shows. It’s a mixed bag of great stuff and content you can find on YouTube or in some dime DVD bin somewhere. You would think that Netflix could pony up on some unique content.

Netflix Trends

The shining star of Netflix streaming however is the documentary and learning content. You can get some great documentaries streaming on Netflix and in HD at that. You’ll be startled at how many crime miniseries or historical and biographical documentaries there are on this site that can be streamed with ease. There are documentaries like botany and oceanography and just about any of the sciences are represented. Not only that but the scientists too. From Ben Franklin to Michelangelo you’ll find something of interest here.

Star Trek fans will delight in the fat that you can stream every Star Trek TV show on Netflix. A never before seen feat and it has Star Trek fans buzzing with excitement. Almost 50 years of Trek in one place and you can watch each episode as much as you like.

So overall, the Netflix streaming option is great for convenience and you’ll find a wide variety of content.
