    There's not much on TV that could keep my attention for eight hours, but I couldnt stop. Absolutely riveting. The full second season will also be available on demand to Starz subscribers beginning Sunday.

    So, is the name of this thread going to remain the same?

    Guy Pearce Revealed Netflix Is Dropping The Term "Binge-Watching"

    "While Pearce didn’t elaborate further as to why Netflix has decided to back off the term, he and host Chris Hewitt brainstormed new terminology for the streaming platform, including “marathon watch” and “elongated entertainment.”

    Serious question?
    If so, here's my "insider's" knowledge---

    It's a site where you can view (no ads!!) TV shows or movies!
    For TV shows, they have full seasons---thus the "binge-watch" term!
    For newcomers, they offer a 30 day free trial---no strings!

    The latter is how I first signed up!
    That "free trial" is REAL!!
    (If you don't want it after the 30 days, MAKE SURE to CANCEL BEFORE the 30 days are up!!!)

    I've actually gotten 2 or 3 free trials---each 30 days!
    You have to wait at least 10 months after your previous free trial ends to get another one!!
    (Although I'm now on a month-by-month deal!)

    But if you're a fan of various TV shows---or are interested in finding new ones----ditto with movies----Netflix is FANTASTIC!
    They add new shows & movies every month----and remove some too!
    Near the end of a month (20th on??), you can google the list of upcoming additions to Netflix! (And removals!)

    As you might be aware---if you've seen or read my various posts on this thread---my tastes in shows & movies are quite different from most of this Board!

    But I can tell you that MOST of my Top 30 favorite TV series from the 21st century were seen on Netflix!!
    A short list---
    Grey's Anatomy (14 seasons)
    Californication (7)
    The Fosters (5)
    Life, Unexpected (2)
    Switched at Birth (5)
    When Calls the Heart (4)
    Cedar Cove (3---but no longer on Netflix!)

    Some of the shows are original Netflix productions!

    Price (after free trial)??
    You can pay by the year or by month.
    The basic---and cheapest---is $7.99, but no HD.
    With HD, it's $11.99 ($12.95 with tax).
    I pay the latter!
    I cancelled for one month (July??), but re-upped in August!!
    I'm the type that likes to watch whole series again & again!!

    BTW, to see ALL the shows or movies they have (once a member), click on either TV shows or movies at the top of the page!
    For more specific lists, click on the word "genre" & choose which genre's to check out!
    There are about 12 or 15!

    Anyway, this should answer your question!

    Thanks, aaronk... I am aware of the existence of Netflix and that people watch stuff on it that I would like see... but I am a technology ignoramus and I still don't know where/how to sign up.

    Google Netflix.
    The free trial offer will be right there for you.
    They'll take you step by step.
    They'll want you to choose a "plan"---either the $7.99 or $11.99 per month.
    You'll need to give your credit card info, etc.
    The free trial will begin immediately.
    If you decide you don't like Netflix, you can cancel.
    As long as you cancel BEFORE the 30 days are up, they will NOT charge you!!
    But if you don't cancel, then you will be charged starting day 31!!

    I'm also a tech idiot, and it was VERY EASY to get the free trial started!

    ADD:
    After googling Netflix, the page you'll first see will say "start your free trial".
    It might say "continue" or "next"----can't remember!
    But once you click on "start your free trial", they'll next ask you to choose a plan---and they'll show you what's in each plan.

    I watch everything on my computer!
    But they have different offers to watch stuff on various tech thingies----iPhone or whatever!

    Anyway, the steps are VERY easy to follow.
    You'll have no problem!!

    Not too bad. Lots of action, a little unsophisticated about the Jihadi arena, but then most American movies are, but highly entertaining and bingeable. How to go from analyst to super hero at light speed.
