So after talking about it for a while we finally decided to get netflix and stop buying DVDs.
So in the first month I watched the whole of prisonbreak, season 1 and 2 good, 3 ok, 4 like the bad xfiles seasons.
Lots of movies some good some very bad, such as Video Games High School.
Also have been enjoying rewatching Numbers and discovered Modern Family.
Interestingly though I have realised how much more satisfying the long form story of a TV series actually is and how much fun watching entire season quickly is. In fact I would agree that NetFlix are right in suggesting people want to consume TV outside of the once a week paradigm.
In fact as someone who gave up watching live TV a few years ago I really don’t understand why people prefer the weekly episode form over the all at once and consume as you like model that NetFlix are offering and promoting.
I would suggest that it is time to consider the disruptive effect of IP, on demand delivery on the establish and current media outlets, as the cut in adverts model is unlikely to transfer across.
