Keep or get rid of Netflix?

Technology is constantly evolving. What was once consider the best of the best is now simply outdated. This is a trend that will continue for years to come. When it comes to technology especially for streaming it is always a good idea to stay up to date. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you should go out and buy the most expensive device every time a new one comes out. It simply means that you should expect for there to be conflicts the older the device is.

There are many other streaming apps that are just as good as Netflix. However, we can’t say that you should drop your Netflix account simply due to this issue. This only shows that Netflix is evolving and keeping up with current trends. They are improving their service for all of their users.
