It is important to understand exactly what you are getting when you sign up for Netflix. While they have not yet announced their numbers, it looks like many of the new customers that signed up over the past few months are the ones that didn’t even really watch any TV.
Those people want to get into the World Wide Web and try to save some money by getting Internet only deals. Since the prices are so low now that is really what they are doing. When you go through a trial offer, you get unlimited downloads to your computer for a very small one time fee.
Since so many people are already streaming on their computers on a daily basis, they really can’t handle too much at one time. So when the new Netflix movies come out, they download them over to your computer. The trial offers do not include DVD rentals, although most pay per view packages will be bundled in with your Netflix membership.
There is one thing to remember when you go through a trial offer and then use it to watch two or three movies or anything else, do not use your fast forward and rewind buttons at the same time. If you try to watch two or three at once, the box could get skipped or your fast forward and rewind buttons could get pressed at the same time. These things happen because the servers are sending them out at the same time that interrupts your movie.
If you are going to continue to stream on your computer, it is a good idea to save your movie on a hard drive, or burn it onto a CD. It will save you a lot of frustration if your download gets interrupted and you need to re-download the same movie again.
If you have a high speed internet connection and want to watch a movie you have already downloaded to your computer, it is okay to use the fast forward and rewind buttons on your remote control. As long as you don’tleave your remote controller near your computer while you are downloading the movie. The servers are programmed to send you on to another movie if the one you are waiting for runs out.
The program used to watch movies on Netflix is called TViTV, it is on your computer and it uses a password. There is no need to give this password to other people as you use Netflix, you are in control of what you want to watch.
That is a very workable combination and gives you the opportunity to watch as many movies as you want. It is just as easy to sign up for Netflix as it is to watch a movie.
