Every night we seem to head to bed later and later and this week was no exception. On Friday and Saturday I watched movies directly from my laptop through Netflix. I didn’t start watching the films until well after 11 and before I knew it 1 am passed and I still wasn’t in bed.
The online Netflix service has been available for quite some time, but in the initial phases it wasn’t accessible for Mac users. I planned to try it out a long time ago, but of course I only got around to it this past weekend. For the most part the service is quite smooth.
There aren’t a ton of movies available through the online portal, but there are quite a few to choose from. If you’re in between DVDs and in need of a movie fix, it’s a decent option. You simply chose the movie you want to watch, click the play button, set the resolution to full screen, sit back and enjoy.
For the most part I didn’t experience any difficulties in watching either movie. Every once in awhile it seemed like the film skipped a frame or two, but I’m not sure that most people would have noticed and it certainly didn’t distract me from viewing the film.
I still prefer to watch movies on TV, (it’s just easier and more comfortable for me to watch that way), but I will definitely utilize this option again. I just hope to start watching earlier than 11 o’clock the next time around.
