For Christmas, my generous brother gave my family a Wii game console. My children, my husband, Grandpa Murphy, and even Aunt Meaghan, love it. It's entertaining and challenging. It's been such a great gift, we've been content to use it for it's original purpose--which is to play games.
However, as you all know, technology is an ever changing beast of burden. I love it because the possibilities are endless. Yet, it's a pain because new gadgets and gizmo's usually require a significant learning curve. (Just ask me about my new computer. I don't even know half of what it does!) I'll confess, this is the reason it took me a few months to motivate myself to stream Netflix videos to my Wii console per my brother-in-law, Brian's, recommendation.
This past weekend, however, John and I renewed our subscription to Netflix (we are on-again, off-again users of this particular Internet service) and the company kindly sent us a disc to help us get started. Yesterday afternoon, as the kids
begged to watch their third video of the day sought some wholesome family entertainment, I caved and fished out the start up disc. After about an hour, I had successfully streamed Netflix films onto my television using the Wii.
And it's AWESOME!!!
Not only will our children love the family friendly movies available, John and I have loaded a few of our own favorite films into the instant que for our viewing pleasure. I'm totally excited and it was fairly easy to install. If I can do it, anyone can.
Then, last night a friend of mine posted this list of good Catholic movies available on Netflix. Bonus!
