Whether you’re looking to have Netflix movies delivered to your door or watch Netflix movies online, our article should give you an idea of what to expect. This online movie rental company is all the rage, and they’re a large part of the reason why Blockbuster has encountered such financial difficulty over the last few years. Within a decade, I doubt traditional brick-and-mortar video stores will even exist.

Watching Netflix Movies at Home

If you like to watch Netflix movies the old-fashioned way, you’ll find over 100,000 options available. Just visit their website, place the movies you want to see at the top of your queue, and Netflix will ship them to your house via the USPS. After you’re done with one of your Netflix movies, slip it back into the mailbox (postage is pre-paid), and get ready to receive another one. That’s all there is to it.

The following are the main movie genres offered by Netflix:

In addition to being able to browse through the thousands of Netflix movies, members can also receive recommendations based on past viewing habits. For example, the site recently suggested Sons of Anarchy – Season 1 based on my interest in The Shield, and District 9 was recommended because I enjoyed Snatch, Fight Club, and Pulp Fiction.

For members with a few extra minutes to spare, Netflix offers a number of ways to rate your preferences. There’s the traditional star rating system, which allows users to grade a film from one to five, but you can also set your like/dislikes based on storylines, genres, moods, children’s age, etc. And when you’ve filled in enough information, Netflix will even create custom categories by combining your taste preferences. To give you an idea of what I’m talking about, let’s look at a few that Netflix has generated for yours truly:

As you can see, watching Netflix movies can truly become an interactive experience if you’re willing to go the extra mile. That’s part of the reason why I’ve been a loyal customer for over five years (with over 5,000 movies rated, by the way).

Join Netflix for as little as $7.99 per month and get access to hundreds of thousands of movies.

Watch Netflix Movies Online

In addition to viewing movies in the comfort of your own home, members can also choose to watch Netflix movies online. This is perfect for those with a high-speed Internet connection, and the library of available instant view titles is increasing all the time. Whether you’re looking for recent Hollywood hits, classics, or original television series, they’ve got something for you. And thanks to their partnership with Starz, Netflix has at least 1,000 of the latest blockbusters available for viewing on your PC or Mac.

The first time you choose to watch Netflix movies online, you’ll need to download their free software. Don’t panic, though, as this one-time process takes less than a minute. From then on, all you have to do is select a title available for instant viewing, and your feature presentation should begin playing within 30 seconds. These Netflix films don’t need to be downloaded, and there are no commercial interruptions.

All Netflix plans include the instant viewing option, and there’s no additional charge. It also doesn’t count against the number of DVDs you can have at home. Watching Netflix films online is like having your cake and eating it, too.
