Netflix is a great service. It's cheap as Hell too. Hell only costs you your soul and I don't know if souls have monetary value. Do they? Huh, that's something for the philosophers. Well anyway, there's a lot of really good stuff on there. As a Brit my choices in stuff are a little limited, but I can get around that thanks to the Hola internet addon.
|Oh Hola you've changed my mind.|
It's basically a proxy that allows you to watch things, or view websites, from whatever country you want. The main attraction is Netflix but there's also other sites. Like when a video is blocked on CNN or somewhere else, or when your favourite song hasn't been made available in your country on Youtube. I've found there's just one small problem with Netflix; THERE'S TOO MUCH CHOICE.
|I can't decide!|
I've found that while there's a lot that you do want to watch, there's a lot that you won't actually watch. I'll browse through and I'll think to myself "Oh I love that!" or "I've heard nothing but good things about that, I should probably watch it." Do I? Not as much as I probably should. At least I watch enough to justify having an account. For a while it was just sat there taking my money. I'm willing to admit that one problem I do have is that I have a bad attention span. I have trouble just paying attention to a show and so I like to have a show on in the background while I do other things. So that also makes it hard for me to pick something to watch. But still, it seems to be a phenomenom that comes with everything where you have a lot of choice; The more choice you have, the less likely you are to actually choose something. It's why there are people with so many unplayed games on Steam. At least, that's what I tell myself when I see how many unplayed games I have.
|Don't even get me started on that Steam sale.|
Do you have a Netflix account? Do you find it easy to choose something to watch, or just spend a lot of time surfing without picking something? Also, what's the monetary value of a soul?
