I'm going to look dumb and I won't even go anon for it ;)

When you have a netflix subscription does that cover every show they have? Is there ever anything you have to pay extra for? Like they have the new Tinkerbelle movie on their show menu- is it an actual option or do you pay extra to see it? Thank you :)

Not sure. We don't use Netflix. Is there a way to click on it to see? That is what Amazon Prime movies do. They have the ones that are free, but you click on each one. The ones that cost money, it will say in the description.

That's what I'm wondering. We've had Amazon prime forever, and I'm just really underwhelmed with the selections. Sine this is our only means of TV watching over here, I'd like better choices. Netflix doesn't let me see anything unless I start a subscription which I don't want to do unless I'm 100% about it.

I see. Well good luck. I'm sure someone will have an answer. If all else fails, maybe call or email Netflix customer service.

It covers everything that is shown. You can have it streaming on 2 devices at a time. I think you do have to pay more if you want to stream on more devices at one time, but I have never really looked into that to be certain. You can also do profiles with little pics so your kids would be able to choose their profile and there would be parental settings set to what they can and can't watch.

 We have never paid anything extra. Every show will be up there for you to view. Just click on it and hit play : )

 No. You must have a smart tv or a device like the Wii hooked up to your tv in order to stream your show.
