I now very rarely go to the office, and I used to watch Netflix on my commute.

My kid intermittently watches on her iPad.

The notion that we have to login every 30 days or have our devices locked out and need to call support is definitely making me consider canning my service

I fly airplanes for a living. I use netflix from 5-6 countries a month. Any of this shit affects how I use it, I'm cancelling.

Which airline did you say you worked for again, Drunkenaviator?

Do it. I mean, there's better services out there offering better shows with better pricing. Netflix wants to become Cable 2.0, apparently.

I’m in Australia. It’s probably the best we have access to.

Disney, Paramount, Peacock, Prime, Apple?

Apple have some great shows, but not breadth.

Prime has the worst user experience but a few good exclusives amongst some utter crap.

You should.

You know the support queues are going to be long
