Netflix is a subscription TV and film service which allows you to stream content through a range of devices. You will find a range of classic films & TV shows, newer releases and programmes developed especially for Netflix. You can pay for Netflix on a monthly basis and it currently costs £5.99 for one screen, £7.49 for two screens and HD or £8.99 for four screens with ultra HD. Having multiple screens means that more than one person in your household can watch Netflix at the same time. Not all of Netflix’s content is available in HD and whether you are able to stream in HD/Ultra HD depends on your broadband connection.
You can watch Netflix on your laptop, on your mobile device via an app or through your TV using a service such as Roku, Amazon Fire Stick or Apple TV. You can also watch using your Sky TV box, via a smart TV or through a games console such as a PS4 or Xbox One.
Netflix TV Shows
There are hundreds of different TV shows available on Netflix. You will find popular programmes that are no longer on TV such as Gossip Girl, Peep Show and Only Fools and Horses as well as previous seasons of shows which are still airing such as Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Suits, Peaky Blinders and the Big Bang Theory. You will also find original programmes created by directors especially for Netflix such as the Get Down, Stranger Things, Orange is the New Black, Narcos and Better Call Saul. Netflix is also the exclusive owner of Marvel TV shows including Jessica Jones, Daredevil and Luke Cage. The streaming service is also famous for saving TV shows which have been axed by their traditional networks such as Gilmore Girls, Longmire, Arrested Development and The Killing.

Netflix was founded back in 1997 by two former employees of Pure Software. The idea was originally to sell items over the internet, but the two founders couldn’t decide what to sell before eventually settling on a rental TV/film model. As of October 2016, Netflix has over 86 million subscribers around the world, with over 45 million in the USA alone. The same year, Netflix is releasing over 120 original TV shows and films which is more than any other TV network.
