We are considering taking the plunge and getting a monthly subscription to Netflix, but only if it will offer good educational possibilities. We're not a TV watching family, so free TV isn't the attraction for us, it's having easy access to truly educational programming that might not otherwise be easily accessible.
With that in mind, I'm looking for input from those in the know. Netflix currently has a 1-month free trial offer going on, but I don't want to even get started unless I really believe it's in my family's best interest. I know from experience how TV can be a time and attention sucker.
So, do you have Netflix streaming? Do you use it for educational purposes? What sort of programming do you watch on it for your homeschool?
Do you get the DVDs, too? If so, do you think the extra expense is worth it from an educational perspective?
Any other thoughts? I'm all ears.
