You probably know I’m part of the Netflix #StreamTeam and have been for a while now but what you might not know is that we’ve had (and paid for ourselves) Netflix for a few years now and I want to tell you today why we love it so much.
First of all, it’s great for the kids – when you sign in you have the option to go to just shows suitable for children which I love. There’s nothing on there that I don’t want them to watch so I don’t have to police what they choose to watch. There’s lots of shows for them to watch when they want to watch them including some shows they can’t watch anywhere else on TV (like the new show, King Julien, which is really good if you’re interested). I also love that there aren’t any adverts trying to sell toys to the kids that (a) they don’t need and (b) I probably can’t afford anyway.
There’s also some great shows that I can watch with the kids that we can all enjoy. Miss Frugal and I have just finished up to season 3 of 90210 so I was over the moon to see that season 4 is on there to watch now. I’m also trying to get her interested in Charmed but she’s not feeling the love for it yet but I’m looking for something else if anyone has any recommendations.
Master Frugal is very much into David Attenborough documentaries and is loving the Blue Planet and Planet Earth at the moment.
The best part of Netflix by far though is the great choice of shows that we watch together as a family but where it really pays for itself is the shows for grown ups or as I like to call it, the ‘after the kids have gone to bed’s shows.
At the moment we’re part way through watching The Good Wife which is my new favourite TV show and I have a list of shows that I want to watch next which includes Breaking Bad, House of Cards, Game of Thrones and possibly Orange is the New Black. I think I’m the only person in the world who hasn’t seen some of these shows!
I’m not TV obsessed and despite what you might think, I don’t actually watch that much TV but when I do watch it, I like to enjoy what I’m watching which is why I love Netflix.

I am part of the Netflix #StreamTeam and received an Ipad Mini for the purposes of my reviews but the fact is that we’ve had Netflix for years and we love it.
