Netflix is down

Anyone else experiencing this today? Won't start, just a black screen. Sky Sports works out of TV app, but Netflix doesn't and the kids don't like my suggestion to read a book.

Re: Netflix is down

Just checked, no problems signing in. (15:42)

(I'd still push the 'read a book; suggestion. )

If Netflix were down, life would lose meaning for some.

Could have been worst, you could have switched over to the other side to find Boris Johnson PM,
flanked by Professor Chris Whitty & Professor Jonathon Van-Tam ( simply known as JVT ) giving
viewers plenty of SAGE advice at one of their Corona Daily Briefings.

Kids like TV. That's nothing new. When I was little, I was a Sesame Street junkie and then graduated on to MTV.

My son had a friend over the day and they were watching Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer in German. It's amazing how much more creepy Stormella, the evil ice queen, is in German.

You reminded me of MTV! I grew up with MTV too (btw my country was the second in Eastern Europe to have a regional MTV channel, unfortunately it was closed in 2019 and they moved on to MTV Europe)...Plus I'm a movie buff. Back in the day I used to watch HBO, Cartoon Network, moved on to Arte later on, discovered other channels I don't even remember now. I don't watch tv as much as before, of course. I think Netflix brought more "democracy" on this market, same way as YouTube did with their vlogs. These are excellent opportunities for (small) independent producers.

And no, Netflix wasn't down yesterday. My OH still watched his favourite series. We have two tv sets because we're a democracy - one of them in kids' room....and please, those who insist they don't watch tv...c'mon, I don't believe a word of it.
Also, yeah, unfortunately we also read less than before..

Re: Netflix is down

We are also a democracy, I donít watch TV (Truth) and my wife does. The kittens watch whatever my wife does.

The last TV program I watched was something from the BBC, when visiting in-laws in UK last Christmas. I didnít think it was very funny, but ...

We only got our first one in the last couple of years. I had never owned one before.

I do listen to the radio/podcasts a lot though as that can be done when doing other things like cooking.

I started reading my 6-month old the book 102 Dalmatians with pictures. He didnít focus on content but he already liked to leaf thru the pages. Showing him cartoon on TV very seldom, just trying to make him spend more time bonding with parents.

He's only 6 month old, my kids never watched cartoons at this age. This comes a bit later, especially when their friends visit and there are moments you need the quiet time.
One doesn't exclude the other. Them watching cartoons or some movie for kids occasionally and them being read stories or reading a book themselves. Bonding is also when you watch a classic movie/cartoon together, or whatever is of any interest to them.
I'm not a purist. In fact I consider cinematography an art, and I'll take care that my kids will have some knowledge about it. There are classic creations/productions they must know something about. I wonder if they'll agree to see Italian master pieces one day, know more about Italian directors for instance. We'll see. But I'll be damned if I won't try at least to cultivate that curiosity and that love for cinematography (the real thing) too.

Re: Netflix is down

The (8m old) kittens donít watch cartoons either, not that they have a choice. I think they prefer wildlife documentaries and dancing shows.

Re: Netflix is down

Since we're on the subject of Netflix, I just wanted to share about something I watched on there last night that is probably the most beautiful and moving documentary that I have ever seen...

It's titled "My Octopus Teacher."

I went into it not really knowing what to expect and left feeling a sensation like I'm not sure I have ever felt before... I don't even know how to really put it into words. The film is just incredibly beautiful (and amazing) in every way possible. It really opens your mind and causes you to see the world a bit differently... or has for me, at least.

If you're ever in a place where you're feeling like everything is wrong with the world or stressed out, please watch that film. I feel changed by it (in a good way), and even today, I can still feel it with me.

Oh I know! I watched it too and at the end, I was in tears.
