Starhub v. Netflix

Post by abbby » Thu, 19 Sep 2019 11:15 am

Currently on Starhub TV with 3 basic tiers, paying $100+ monthly.

Considering to switch to Netflix, has anyone experienced Netflix, how do you find it?

Netflix there's always something decent to find to watch and the fact that it's much cheaper too. Get Amazon Prime too and you'll never need to watch broadcast TV again.
I have both and starhub, but will ditch starhub when my contract expires.

Is it easy to navigate with Netflix?

It's OK. Not really different to any other streaming service such as spotify/apple music etc...
If you've got google TV you can use voice to control which is cool especially if you know what you want to watch. No need to faff around with the interface.

Sounds easy. I should give them a try next time my Starhub contract ends. I realised Starhub channels get terminated all the time, Discovery, TLC, HGTV, EVE, and so much more, and I'm still paying the same price.

Starhub has lost the plot frankly. Incidentally the new Starhub boxes can deliver NetFlix as well.
