Is Netflix expensive?
No, It's only $8 a month
Netflix is available to those who don't have television service, but have internet service. It is available at about $8 a month, compared to Dish Network, which is about $25 dollars per month. So is Dish Network is too expensive, you may try out Netflix. The compromise is the programming on Netflix isn't current.
Netflix pays for licensing of movies and television programming. Restrictions on how that content can be acquired determines what can and cannot be streamed vs. mail-only DVD media. It is much less expensive to stream content and Netflix is striving to deliver a streaming only service since many households can now support the requirements for 720p surround sound HD movies.
