Netflix #StreamTeam (Plus a GIVEAWAY!)

Last summer we gave up our cable, and honestly, we have never looked back. Occasionally if there is a sporting event that is only on cable we whine and moan a bit, but usually we just head to someone else’s house and benefit from their exhorbenantly high cable bill. It definitely has worked well for us.

I remember when I called the cable company to tell them we were going to discontinue cable and they kept making offer after offer to try and get us to stay. Finally I just said, “Netflix cost $7.99. Can you beat $7.99?” They proceeded to cancel my appointment without question.

Stream Team

This month I was asked to join the Netflix #StreamTeam and I am so excited!! I alreday use Netflix and am a HUGE fan. My kids can see all their favorite shows like Wild Kratts, Superhero Squad, Jessie and My Little Pony. Ryan and I have binge watched The Office, Parenthood, How I Met Your Mother, House of Cards and dabbled in watching tons of our “old” favorites like Chuck, Scrubs, and The Cosby Show. I haven’t even covered the movies. I mean, I found Heathers. HEATHERS!!

In case you aren’t familiar, Netflix is a monthly subscription services that allows you to stream unlimited movies and TV shows. You can stream movies on on your TV with a streaming media player or you can watch on your computer, tablet or phone. And at $7.99, it is way more affordable than your typical cable bill.

I would love for you to have a chance to try Netflix streaming for yourself or your family. I have a 3 month subscription to Netflix to giveaway!
Giveaway ends on 5/4/14 and is open to US residents only. Please enter on the Rafflecopter form below. Best of luck!!

Disclosure:  I am a member of the Netflix #StreamTeam and received a one-year subscription to Netflix and a Roku media streaming device. Each month I will be bringing you Netflix updates and reviews, however, all opinions are my own.

    I’d love to watch Adventure Time on Netflix! I’ve missed a lot of episodes, so I need to catch up :)

  2. We do the Netflix and Hulu Plus dance, with some Amazon Prime thrown in there. :) I use Netflix for the kids – love that they have the Tinkerbell movies, Angelina Ballerina, Wild Kratts, Thomas, and tons of other kid stuff. I watch Drop Dead Diva and Buffy and an occasional movie. Or I think I did, before we had three kids. :/ Someday …

  3. Shannon Giles says:

    My kids would love all the movies. They are just getting to the age where they will watch a movie, so we haven’t seen many of them. I would love to get in to Downton Abbey.

  4. Mary Happymommy says:

    I’d like to watch the old episodes of Freaks & Geeks.

  5. Christie says:

    Daniel Tiger on repeat forever. Or Friends for mommy.

  6. Do you only do Netflix? We’ve GOT to get rid of our DirecTV but we tried Hulu and I hated it b/c it had so many commercials. We do Amazon Prime but I don’t think it has as much as Netflix.

    • Hulu + is only really good for keeping up with current seasons of shows. And then only some are on it. Netflix doesn’t usually have current seasons but has back seasons for so many shows. And since I know you love all things Disney, you will probably love that they have a lot of old school Disney movies that you can stream for free. As well as some cool documentaries for adults. Of Amazon, Hulu+ and Netflix, we use Netflix the most for sure.

  7. Nicole says:

    We love watching Lost on Netflix

  8. Our favorite series lately has been Chuck and 24. My husband loved watching all of the old star trek shows. My girls can’t get enough of anything on the children’s station. WE LOVE NETFLIX! Cable free now for 4 years!

  24. Teresa says:

    House of Cards is first on my list followed by the oldies but goodies like Freaks and Geeks and The Wonder Years.

  25. Believe it or not, I still haven’t watched Scandal or Veronica Mars…which makes me the very last of all of the people I know. I’d like to catch up on those..OH!! And, Sopranos. I never watched that even though I’m a huge fan of mob movies. We just canceled our cable a few months ago, too!
