Netflix is a popular streaming service that provides hundreds of films and TV shows without advertisements.
As long as you have a device that is connected to the internet, like a smart TV, laptop, tablet, games console, or smartphone, and you are willing to pay for the monthly subscription, you can access the streaming service for a lot of on-demand entertainment.
What you watch is a personal preference. Some people like Stranger Things, Squid Game, Clickbait and Maid, while others like older classics such as Dirty Dancing, Scarface and Monty Python. There is also a great children’s section with Spongebob, Cocomelon, Paw Patrol and countless other shows that children are sure to love.
Although we don’t want you to stay at home all day, it can be a lot of fun to watch TV when there are picnics, barbecues and dinners outside.
So, if you haven’t tried the service or are in two minds about whether to rejoin, we’ve answered all your burning questions below. This includes how much it costs, payment plans, and how easy it is to set up an account.
How much does Nextflix cost and what is the cheapest option in the UK?
Netflix offers three different packages for people to choose from: basic, standard, and premium. The main difference between the packages is how many people can watch Netflix at the same time. Basic, Standard, and Premium all have up to five profiles that track individuals’ watchlists and recommended shows.
The cheapest package is £6.99 a month. With this package, you can watch TV shows and movies, but only one at a time. You can also only download TV shows and movies to one device.
The standard package for £10.99 includes all of the following: watching shows on two devices at the same time and downloading them onto two different mobile devices. The package also has HD quality viewing for higher quality shows.
The premium package costs £15.99 per month and includes all of the above. You can watch most TV shows and films in Ultra HD on four devices at the same time.

Are there any good alternatives to Netflix?
Netflix has been spending a lot of money on original content. This has made it the most popular streaming service. But it has also raised prices. You may want to consider other options because there are now more streaming services than ever before, each with its own unique content. And many of these services cost less than Netflix.
There is a new TV service called Apple TV+. It costs just £4.99 a month and has a good selection of high-quality content that you can’t find anywhere else. This content includes Ted Lasso, The Morning Show, For All Mankind, Severance, Trying, CODA and Slow Horses.
You could also try Amazon Prime Video. This is included in the £7.99 (or £79 a year) Prime membership, but it is also available on its own for £5.99 a month. Prime Video includes a lot of original Amazon content as well as TV shows from other producers. You can find a lot of movies on Prime Video, including the entire James Bond collection, because Amazon recently bought MGM.
You could try swapping Netflix for Disney+, which costs £7.99 a month or £79.90 a year and includes the entire Disney back catalogue. There’s also everything Disney owns, including the Marvel and Star Wars franchises, and brand-new releases like Mulan and Cruella, plus exclusives like Pam & Tommy and The Beatles: Get Back.
But, to help you get started, we recommend some popular shows like Stranger Things, Maid, Squid Game, Clickbait and Sweet Magnolias.
