Netflix has become the largest entertainment medium in the world. Founded in 1997, Netflix has evolved from its original business model of renting out DVDs to the largest entertainment platform in the world. In 2019, Netflix has completely eliminated the DVD rental portion of their business and has almost 150 million total users, including people with free trials. Many people think that Netflix has made conventional television obsolete and have been asking the all important question of whether Netflix has surpassed the quality of conventional television.

Of course, the answer is different for everyone person. Someone who watches sports won’t like Netflix as much as TV because Netflix doesn’t broadcast live sports, but someone who enjoys various movies, shows, or documentaries will find Netflix more appealing. At this point Netflix has exceeded conventional TV. Not only does Netflix have various shows and movies from both now and a long time ago, but they now regularly produce films and shows that are widely viewed and loved. Not only that, but Netflix has such a large variety. This month alone, Netflix is releasing comedies, mysteries, children’s shows and more. Netflix has made Emmy-winning shows and also animated comedies. There is no end to the variety you can find on Netflix.

As well as variety, there is also so much volume. This month there will be 65 additions to Netflix. You can spend literally hours browsing Netflix’s catalogue for the right show and spend an entire weekend watching it. It is also accessible on your phone or any other device with internet. It’s accessibility has caused companies like DirectTV to make a phone app just to keep up with Netflix Netflix is such a well-rounded, cheap, product that is definitely superior to conventional TV.
