Netflix Review: What Content is Available on the Service?

Netflix - Netflix Review

Netflix offers an extremely large content library, but it’s at the changing wheel always. The show that is available today may be gone by tomorrow, at the same time new movies and videos keep coming too. Therefore, you can’t create an exact list of available shows, making the site an everlasting thrill. Countless third-party websites publish articles like “Everything on Netflix this Month” and “Everything that’s leaving Netflix” to give you an overview of the relevant updates.

However, sometimes viewers get disappointed with the removal of their favorite shows, for instance, Friends, The Office, etc. These were among the most-watched shows that Netflix has lost to their original productions. This trend is growing with the passage of time and leading to the times when Netflix is going to need more of its originals, some of which are highlighted in this Netflix review. At the present moment, newcomings are compensating a bit like Seinfeld and Community.

Netflix Documentaries

Netflix is also specialized in producing blockbuster big-name documentaries that accomplish award nominations. There are a number of behind-the-scenes documentaries highlighting the backstage lives of celebrities, we have discussed a few of them in a Netflix review. For instance, Homecoming (Beyoncé’s Grammy-winning), Miss Americana: Taylor Swift to Becoming, Michelle Obama, etc. Further, its collection of Black Lives Matter featured a few award-winning documentaries including Grammy-winner The Two Killings of Sam Cooke and the Oscar-nominated What Happened Miss Simone?

Sports fans can watch The Last Dance (a multipart documentary), etc.

Netflix Anime

Netflix has become a powerful streaming source for anime lovers. Particularly, it is doing a great job with older anime series including Little Witch Academia, Rurouni Kenshin, Inu Yasha, and Robotech. Now, Netflix has also added anime to its productions such as rebooting the venerable She-Ra, Castlevania, and Voltron series. The only trouble with its anime collection is similar to that with its content, they come for streaming and go without notice.

Netflix Games

Netflix has a separate fanbase for shows like Daredevil, The Witcher, and Cowboy Bebop. Resident Evil and Castlevania are direct adaptations of video games. That’s why it’s not surprising at all to see Netflix’s recently introduced mobile game subscription packages. If you have an Android or iOS Netflix subscription you can play five games for free without advertisements. You can either get direct access to the games or download them from Google Play Store or App Store.

Among these five games, three are casual, finicky basketball Shooting Hoops games, Facebook time-wasters Gaming-style: Poker-themed Cart Blast, and Arcade ball-balancing game Teeter-Up. In case, someone is more interested in on-brand or substantive, can play retro-styled two Stranger Things adventure games: Strangers Things 1984 and Stranger Things Three the Game.

The standard plan of DVD starts from $7.99 per month with unlimited DVD numbers per month and a single DVD out at a time package.
