Netflix for Must-See Movies

Most of these Must-See Movies are available from Netflix.

Some of these movies are available via 1. Netflix Streaming digital service, and others via 2. Netflix DVD mail delivery service. If you subscribe to only one of these two Netflix services, you may mistakenly think that many of these other Must-See Movies are not available from Netflix — if you do not find them listed on the one Netflix service you subscribe to.

Many of the Frontline Stories are available from Netflix

Netflix is an American provider of on-demand Internet streaming media in the United States, Canada, Latin America, the Caribbean, South America, United Kingdom & Ireland, and some countries of Northern Europe.

Netflix also provides flat rate DVD-by-mail in the United States.

The company started its subscription-based digital distribution service in 1999.

In 2007, Netflix announced the billionth DVD delivery.

By 2009 Netflix was offering a collection of 100,000 titles on DVD.  To put that in perspective, if you watched one movie every day, or 365 per year, it would take three years to see 1,000 movies — or thirty years to see 10,000 — or 300 years to watch all 100,000 movies available on Netflix.  (Film critic Roger Ebert estimated that he saw 10,000 movies and wrote 6,000 reviews.)

By 2009 Netflix surpassed 10 million subscribers.

In 2011, Netflix announced 23.6 million subscribers in the United States and over 26 million worldwide.

In 2013, Netflix announced 31 million subscribers in the United States.  Netflix says it has more than 31 million U.S. subscribers to its streaming service, plus almost 10 million international subscribers.

“During peak hours, Netflix accounts for more than thirty percent of all down-streaming traffic in North America, nearly twice that of You-tube, its closest competitor.”  (New Yorker ‘Outside the Box’ Feb 3, 2014 p. 54)

“So thankful for Netflix. This film should be playing in every theater in America.”

“I would like to thank NETFLIX for offering some of the best films around. Highly recommend this movie and commend Netflix for showing it. I never would have discovered this story if not for my membership. I encourage anyone with a social conscience to please watch this movie. People need to be more educated about issues like this. It gave me CLEAR insight into what’s going on in the world. Really enjoyed it. Great film! An absolute MUST see!”
