Act 175

Sign up for Netflix

It’s a rainy night in the Shuswap. Summer vacation looms. Two more sleeps.

For some calm before the storm, consider a quiet evening watching Netflix. $8 plus tax a month. At that price, you can afford to try a new movie, a new documentary, a new comedy. Cause let’s face it, it’s not like there’s very much innovative programming on network TV these days, is there? And a night out at the movies is a risky and fairly expensive proposition too.

Having said that, some stories are best told on the big screen. You just have to be selective. ┬áIf you live in these parts, consider the Starlight Drive In too. Now that’s a real big screen experience – complete with the dancing hot dogs at intermission.

Do you remember the dancing hot dogs? Maybe they should add it to Netflix as well to enhance the home viewing experience.

But back to Netflix as a debt defying option. It’s the future, if you ask me. The sharing economy. Well actually, the library is the future – it’s just that the rest of the world is catching up.

So I’ll enjoy my home library of movies – and happily pay my monthly share. Learn a little along the way and enjoy home made popcorn and the comfort of my couch.

So visit your refreshment centre now, the show starts again in 10 minutes!
