How exactly does Netflix work? I know that you pay a monthly subscription to download tv series an films, but that's about it. Is there a limit to how much you can download? Is any television series or film available? Once you have downloaded it, do you then own the media like you own a DVD, or is there a limited time that the programme will remain on your system before it is deleted?
Once downloaded, can you then copy the programmes onto discs so you can watch it on a DVD player or is that a breach of copyright?
Netflix is a streaming service. You pay a monthly fee to gain access to their film and tv show library. You can watch as much as you like and they have a pretty extensive library of movies. Their selection in TV fair but it also grows by the month. Netflix does have a decent selection of older shows.
Here's how netflix works: You sign up for the service, and you are assigned a username and password which will give you access to the netflix library. You can than view anything in the library from any netflix enabled device. The content is streamed over the internet to the device, which means it is not saved on the device at all, and cannot be copied or burned to DVD. you don't own a copy of the content at all, it's more like you get a one-time rental, but you can re-rent the content as many times as you like.
