Netflix in the past few months has begun allowing users to watch Netflix movies online or stream them. Although this may sound like a great Idea there are a few negatives I want to go through as Wildblue Satellite is not recommended.
There are rental plans available to rent from 1 to 3 movies per month. And there are never any late fees. You can return a movie whenever you like. You just need to return one movie to get the next one on your list.
I bought my dad the next highest subscription. At $13.99 a month, that allows him to order two DVD movies at a time. With that plan, he can be watching one movie while the second one is in the mail, so he’s rarely without one movie waiting for him to watch. You can also pay $16.99 and get three DVD movies at a time, but my dad and I decided the two DVD movies was enough. With that subscription, my mom and dad figured out they see about 25-30 DVD movies or TV shows every month.
The middle top area (sponsored ads) is also much more expensive to advertise on while the right-top side ads (1st to 5th positions) are priced higher than the mid-right and bottom right adwords areas. Although, this is done through a bidding process, the idea is clear that, if your ad is the first on the top right side of the page, you get hit more than those below you. This is not only exclusive to Google but to most if not all search engines online that run ads on their SERPs.
By using the rent gomovies option you don’t have to drive to the DVD or video rental in order to choose or return your movie choice. This option to rent movies online will allow you to see the movie that you want no matter what the weather is like outside. You will also have no need to worry about hordes of crowds. This is definitely a plus on holidays.
You will also be able to design the format of your ads within your AdSense account. Google allows you to play around the text of the ads within certain parameters like size, type, nature, text color, borders color, background colors, url color and the shape of their edges. Google also lets you choose how you want your AdSense ads to contrast against your main text by being able to choose the templates among them blend, mother earth etc. Personally I have found blending my ads to the text works where I don’t want them to conspicuously stand out.
Amazon is buying up lots of new material, signing contracts with many providers, and snatching up anything Netflix drops (with the $8 billion of cash on hand vs the $290 million that Netflix has Amazon may be able to win out in the end… we will see). Right now both Amazon and Netflix have a plethora of movies; only the future will tell who will have more.
