Student picks next show to watch on Netflix

Don’t you hate it when you are binging a great series on Netflix and it stops and asks (in large font on the screen) if you are still watching? Like, yeah! You think I got up and started doing something with my life? Just play!

Many students at EHS know the feeling. Many have their favorite shows and spend hours watching. Emmelly Alvarez (9) says she spends a lot watching Netflix, “I watch things like, ‘On My Block’ and ‘Jane the Virgin.'”

Alvarez is trying to focus more on school and limit her time on Netflix, “I’ve procrastinated a lot so, I watch a lot of Netflix.”

She is one of the hundreds of students who watch the streaming network. “I watch a lot of Netflix because I don’t have anything else to do. I watch ‘Jane the Virgin’, ‘New Girl’, ‘Black Panther’, ‘On my Block’ and Bird box,'” said Jaxon Wilbourn (9).

Chris Uriarte (11) has similar tastes in shows but throws in a few sci-fi selections, “Dynasty, ‘On my Block’, ‘Agents of Shield.'”

“I watch Netflix when I have nothing else to do but I don’t watch all the time. I watch things like ‘Heaven’ and the ‘Flash’,” said Spanish teacher Brandy Bartholomew.

According to Netflix, the service’s most popular plan will increase from $11 to $13 per month for HD streaming. Netflix’s most expensive plan, which offers 4K content and up to four simultaneous streams on different devices, will increase from $14 to $16. And the service’s basic plan, which doesn’t offer HD, will rise from $8 to $9.

There are some students who foot the bill for the service themselves, but most we spoke to said they use their families Netflix account.
