What to stream this weekend on Netflix

Update on

It’s the festive season, which for some people, means spending time binge-watching some shows on Netflix. Here’s a list of the top 15 shows we think you will like.

Streaming is a term that refers to a technology that is often used to deliver content to computers, mobile and hand held devices via the World Wide Web or the internet. This form of innovation involves transmission of data consisting of video and audio allowing the intended audience to watch and listen, making it one of the most popular means of entertainment.

As opposed to traditional progressive downloads where the recipient has to download the entire content before accessing it, streaming on the other hand allows the recipient to start using and accessing the content even before the entire file is downloaded.

Amongst popular entertainment service providers, Netflix leads in provision of streaming entertainment content to its audience or users, and has thousands if not hundreds of movies and shows available to stream. Having that in mind, and with the holidays looming, it would be interesting to have a look at what you can stream for yourself, your family, your friend and even for the kids during this weekend.
