Every month brings hope and disappointment for me, because Netflix releases a list of content that will be added and taken away from their service. It seems like these days, they’re taking away more content than they are adding, and most of the content that they do add is usually their original content, with a few unknown movies that no one really cares about. I do enjoy some of the original content, but I always want more. That’s why I went over to the US Netflix to see what they had to offer. There was a lot more content to watch on the US side, and even though some things were being added and removed, it wasn’t nearly as much as I was seeing in my own country.

What really surprised me about the content on Netflix in the US is that they got many movies before we did. I know that most of the movies are made by US production companies, but I’d still expect the movies to arrive here at the same time as they do in the US. There was a movie on the US side that I had been waiting for months to come over on our side, and I was starting to think that I would never see it.

It would be nice if Netflix just unified all of their content across all of their markets, but I guess that won’t be happening anytime soon due to licensing agreements and regulations. For now, I’ll just have to use the work around that I found and watch the content on the US branch of Netflix whenever I feel like it. There’s a new original show based on a lesser known comic book character that is coming out soon. The show has some high profile actors, so I’m sure it will be good.
