Netflix Online Film Rentals

The popular US based on-demand media streaming service Netflix is now being made available in the UK. Subscribers can pay only £5.99 per month for unlimited access to the entire Netflix catalogue which includes a variety of popular film and TV content, all streamed via the internet to a number of different devices.

Netflix are offering a one month free trial if customers link the service to their Facebook profile and the content is delivered in either standard or high definition. The HD films need a connection speed of at least 5Mbp/s so as to avoid buffering whilst the standard definition content requires only 2Mbp/s. A 90 minute film in HD uses approximately 3.5GB of data allowance.

The TV shows and films can be simply streamed via the internet to a desktop computer or anything with a web browser and it is also compatible with the WII, PS3, Apple TV, XBOX 360 and a number of tablet / smart phone devices.

In recent years the average price for an online movie rental has been between £3 and £4 and even then the content is only available for 48 hours. With Netflix the content is always available which means that you only have to watch 2 movies and the service has paid for itself.

Major media providers such as BBC, 4oD, Disney UK, MGM, Paramount, Lionsgate, Sony Pictures, 20th Century Fox to name but a few have all signed up to Netflix and are currently providing content.

The exciting new development is further proof that now, more than ever it is important to have a fast, reliable internet connection. Why not give us a call on 0113 2946699 to discuss your requirements and look at ways of making sure you have the best internet connection to meet your needs.
