Surprise! Welcome to the Netflix Stream Team!

Disclosure: I’m a member of the Netflix #StreamTeam which means that they pay for the streaming service in exchange for me posting once a month about the service. All opinions are my own. 

Welcome to the Netflix Stream Team!

My fabulous welcome to the #StreamTeam!

Toward the end of January, I got an amazing and unexpected email. It was from Netflix inviting me to be a member of their Stream Team.

What is the Netflix Stream Team? We are a group of bloggers who stream Netflix selections and then write about it once a month. 

Having never used Netflix, I was particularly thrilled by the opportunity. After all, I’m an unapologetic fan of T.V. and a huge movie lover. I couldn’t wait! Unfortunately, I had to wait nearly a month before my Roku box and subscription information arrived. When it did arrive at the end of February, I had the plague (slight exaggeration, only slight) and wasn’t interested in doing much with it at first.

My husband, though, took full advantage of Netflix with our girls, particularly Ginny. She loves Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood. In the real world of television, Daniel is not on at any time you want him to be. Chris found the show on Netflix  and streamed it; making our very nearly 3-year-old extremely happy!

A couple of days later, as I was eating toast with honey for breakfast, Ginny, inspired by the honey, decided that she just HAD to watch Winnie the Pooh. After we were done eating, I looked on Netflix and, sure enough, I found the full length feature that I watched as a little girl. Ginny and Grace were thrilled and enchanted by Pooh on a morning when I had little energy because I was still recovering from the stomach flu.

My girls are not the only ones in our home enjoying our new “toy.” I ended up adding 36 shows and movies to my list to watch. I started by watching the Sherlock series and now I’m revisiting Highlander and the original Battlestar Galactica. (You didn’t realize I’m a sci-fi geek, did you?) I love being able to catch up with programs or movies I’ve wanted to see and revisit old favorites.

In the months to come, I hope to share with you all the great programming we discover. I’d also love it if you share your suggestions with me.

Do you have Netfix? If so, what have been your favorite things to watch? What do your kids enjoy?

  1. I love Netflix. I used to pay so much for cable and then we got Netflix for one month because we could watch the new season of one of our shows much cheaper than buying the dvd but we never looked backed! Although I watch a lot of trashy tv now, my new love is Pretty Little Liars.

  2. We are big fans of House of Cards and Orange is the New Black which are original Netflix programs. Because of Netflix, we were able to catch up on old seasons of Breaking Bad to see the rest of the final season on AMC. Currently my son is able to catch movies I loved as a kid like Ghostbusters. I’m still not crazy about the limited selection of Instant Play movies available, but I know they are making changes to include more. Thanks for linking up to Turn It Up Tuesday.

  3. This is so cool! I have never heard of #streamteam. We got rid of Netflix, but are soon dumping DirecTv and going back to Netflix. We just don’t have time to watch enough tv to warrant the big $$ of DirecTv and Netflix streaming has so much great stuff. Thanks for sharing! I also LOVE ‘The Killing’, which Netflix picked up for a 4th season after AMC dropped it.
