Not worth the money
During the week is viewable. But weekends you cannot watch a movie without the waiting circle twirling. Tonight I changed three different movies all timed out after 20 minutes. Just when you get interested it fails on you. Last year we blamed the internet speed now we have NBN speeds have improved dramatically but Netflix is still as bad. Then choosing a movie is a real problem nothing interesting. The choices made for us are terrible and not at all what we like. Netflix increased the charges and decreased service. I am very unhappy soon to drop out and use another service provider.
No new content and low security
The Aussie version is just not worth it. There is virtually NO new content added each month. The “New releases” tab has content in there more than a year old and each tab seems to have the exact same shows in a slightly different order. Also, my account got hacked so their security seems fragile. My advice - get it for one month at a time and cancel for the rest of the year and you won’t miss a thing.
The movies and series are boring and they keep stealing my money after stopping the account
I closed my account down early March... since then, Netflix have been continuously taking monthly charges out of a closed card, I am getting international transaction fees, I have rang now 5 times to get them to stop and close the account, am on the phone now and have been told the same crap as the last times... Netflix state that its a simple 2 step procedure to close the account... but i am finding its nearly impossible to stop Netflix from taking out monthly charges.
At the end of the day... this is down right theft and stealing... the Austr...
App is fine, account security is terrible, had my account hacked/email changed from overseas 4 seperate times, and when I tried to cancel, Netflix billed me for another 5 months and refused to refund the payments, even though their customer service agent could confirm an overseas user had been the only access to the account since my cancellation.
Useless. Waste of Money. No Privacy
My Netflix account was constantly trying to get hacked. Apple has more security protocols than Netflix - which is why I rather pay to rent/buy movies off Itunes then pay a monthly fee through Netflix when the movies and shows on the program aren't even good. $10 a month will not get you good quality picture- so you need to pay more - especially if you have a family that uses 2 or more screens to watch.
93% of its content is unwatchable - they're old/boring/movies that never made it to the big screen.
You need to up your content if you don't wa...
WHY DO I HAVE TO BE IN THE US TO WATCH SOMETHING?
been using Netflix for a while now and have only just run into a problem that is ruining it for me.
I was excited for the Pokemon journeys series as I love Pokemon. when I didn't find it on Netflix I was confused and tried looking it up. I found out that it is only for the us this week. Why are different countries able to watch stuff while other countries don't? makes no sense to me.
netflix doesn’t stream in 5.1 or dolby digital plus surround sound
netflix’s own documentation states
“Titles that have 5.1 surround sound available will display either a Dolby Digital Plus icon or a 5.1 icon on the movie description page.”
However, I have not found one single movie or show that carries this icon. I spoke to their customer service team. They would not talk about the issue, nor would they put me through to a technical expert. Very disappointing.
Netflix Security Sucks
It came to my attention recently that my account had been breached and information was employed to create fraudulent accounts. Netflix took absolutely no responsibility for the breach and instructed me to pursue any financial loss from my banking institution. Netflix has a no refund policy so what is the incentive for them to secure your information. Thousands of customers have their accounts breached annually as a result of Netflix's security being compromised. If you want to get robbed become a Netflix customer.
Terrible Streaming service
Netflix streaming look worse than some DVDs that I have watched especially since they slashed bitrates even further. Their content has also dramatically decreased and their original shows and movies for the most part are underwhelming. Removing Chris Lilleys shows is another insult to fans and customers.
Questions & Answers
If I download a show on my phone can I watch it offline on another device? A blue ray player?
