Netflix (idiot question)

Recommended Posts

Is the only option for netflix some sort of monthly membership? I live in the boonies and have satellite internet with not much data- don't stream unless we have extra data at the end of the cycle and then we might watch a movie. But I really want to see Wet Hot Summer so I might watch at work or something. I know with Amazon, when you have Prime you get a bunch of stuff free, but what's not free you can also rent or buy. Just wondering how Netflix works. Website not terribly informative unless you sign up.... Thanks!

Yes, you can get a monthly membership just for streaming or a monthly membership to just get DVD by mail. You can also buy a year or whatever at a time, but most people do a month at a time. I think the original programming is ONLY streaming.

 

Is this a movie sequel or have they turned it into a series? If it's a movie that you can watch in two hours, just sign up for the free trial, watch the movie, then cancel it. There's no "just buy this one movie" option.

They made a short series for this summer, an update to the movie I think. I'm not sure how many episodes there will be.

 

Here - 8 1/2 hour episodes. So I could sign up for a month, watch all (at lunch at work) in a week and then cancel. Or keep for a month and then cancel, whatever.

The movie was the last day of camp. This is the prequel - the first day of camp.
