It can be difficult to imagine that there was a time when Netflix wasn’t available. But now that it is, it can be tough to stop. Some surveys say the average person watches around 10 hours of Netflix a week! And who can blame them?
From all kinds of movie genres, top-notch documentaries, to TV shows, as well as animations, there really is something for everyone (yes, even kids). Plus, Netflix Originals have stepped up their game in terms of content. Expect hard-hitting original stories based on your country or region (i.e. local talent and shows made available).
But there’s more to this streaming platform that just enjoying the third season of Stranger Things. For instance, there are some content that’s not available in the US (bummer!). Also, with thousands of choices, a good number of viewers may feel overwhelmed and just end up re-watching old shows. Not sure if a movie is worth watching? Often, ratings alone are not enough.
