How often do you watch Netflix for shows and movies?

Netflix releases hundreds of new shows and movies every month. And of course catalog titles. Many of the Netflix originals are international productions. Many of these don't get promoted or advertised at all, so I'm sure there are many that you simply have never heard of. I know it's simply not possible to keep up with all of their new content. But I am curious how often you all watch Netflix? They are the OG streaming service that started it all. Or has life gotten too busy and you have to be really selective on what is worth your time?

Do you look through it only for new Netflix originals?

or do you use it for catalog content like network TV or cable shows you missed when they aired?

Or are you simply overwhelmed and barely use it at all. I put in some choices in the poll.

I only watch Netflix for the originals, and then my interests on those are fairly limited to specific series.

Price isn't really a factor considering friends and family share multiple streaming account logins.

Re: How often do you watch Netflix for shows and movies?

Totally depends. I've gone a few months without touching it and other times I've been watching 2 or 3 shows consistently.

And now that I think of it, unless it's a documentary, I rarely watch movies on Netflix. Mainly TV.

So...overall, a few times week, I guess.

At least a few times a week. We also have Hulu and Prime and a few others. We cycle through them depending on our mood.

Re: How often do you watch Netflix for shows and movies?

I would say that I average a season of a TV show per month; two if the seasons are relatively short and/or the episodes only last 30 minutes.

Generally, the shows that I watch on Netflix are international productions; I've been really enjoying the South Korean stuff like All of Us Are Dead and Squid Game, but there're some great Japanese shows on there as well.

I try to be watching 2 or 3 shows at a time to justify the cost. I also cycle in the original movies when I have the time.

I watched Murderville this weekend and that was the first time I have used Netflix in six months. It has gone out of regular rotation. I will renew it for a month every six to nine months to watch the couple of shows they added I want to see.

Even with the price increase I think Netflix is a great value and I'm still amazed by its very existence. As someone who grew up in the 70s just having all this entertainment on demand for a negligible price is crazy. People are spoiled and don't even know it.

Really depends. I would say mostly I only watch it sporadically for original content that interests me, but I have watched it more since they added Seinfeld.

I donít pay for an account though. My girlfriend has it through her mom (my girlfriend shares Disney+ in return).

Re: How often do you watch Netflix for shows and movies?

Practically every day. I don't have a cable subscription, so I either watch network television with an OTA antenna and DVR (which I do less and less these days), or I watch streaming content. Right now I'm kind of loaded up on streaming subscriptions (Netflix, Prime, Hulu, Disney+, and HBO Max) but it still adds up to less than cable.

I can almost always find something new to watch that interests me. I like to watch content from other countries and Netflix has a good selection of that (Money Heist, Dark, 3%, Into the Night). Also, I tend to occasionally re-watch some of my favorite Netflix series (Stranger Things, The OA, Arrested Development, the Marvel series). So all in all I feel like I get my money's worth and then some out of Netflix.

Netflix can be amazing and garbage all at the same time. The limited amount of quality, new movies is disappointing but the original shows like Ozark and Stranger Things are fantastic and worth every penny. We watch a few times a week for the limited run shows... but if we're searching for a movie, it's usually the last resort.
