We have had Netflix for several years now, and we really like it, and think it is well worth the $8 per month that it costs. We used to watch movies, and programs just on the computer, but now I have an iPad, and I often watch documentaries on the iPad while my husband is watching some movie that he likes, on the TV. We also have an Apple TV, and that allows us to watch Netflix on our TV. I think some TVs can just hook right up to Netflix, or with some of the game boxes . Once you have it on the TV, you can enjoy movies, just like you would from cable TV. They add new tv shows, and movies all the time, so I think that definitely Netflix is worth the cost, and would recommend it highly.
