I’m a BIG fan of Netflix Canada.
Great tv shows, classic movies, fantastic documentaries and a special kid’s section that my kids LOVE. All for $8 a month – can’t beat that.
New research from Netflix and Leger Marketing shows that watching movies together is amongst the top five holiday traditions in Canada. According to the survey of Canadians who celebrate the holidays, over half (58 per cent) of households with children reported that they watch movies together during the holidays.
I’m not really surprised by this stat at all – we definitely fit into that 58 percent. We’re a big movie family – we love to watch movies together and during the month of December, we try to watch as many Christmas movies as possible. As a kid with four siblings, we loved renting a ton of movies to watch during the winter holiday. The only downfall was the older brothers picked most of the movies – I still remember hiding under blankets while my brothers watched Charles Bronson’s Death Wish flicks. Unfortunately for me, my brothers thought anything Death Wish was VERY Christmas-y.
Good times back in the day.
Another aspect of the Netflix survey suggests that even though Canadians find it difficult to find the perfect gift, most believe it’s the thought that counts. For many Canadians, a meaningful gift does not include a hefty price tag as the majority of Canadian gift givers (86 per cent) feel you don’t need to spend a lot to give a great gift; half (49 per cent) say it’s possible to purchase a great holiday gift under $10. “At just $8 a month for unlimited TV and movies, gifting a Netflix subscription provides great value for gift-givers weary of going into the red this holiday season.”
You can give the gift of Netflix to your friends and families by heading to the Netflix site here and purchase a Netflix gift card. Gift subscriptions are available from one month to a year.
