Netflix Needs to Chill: It’s No Longer a Friend to Families

The one thing you cannot afford to do here is nothing.

Winter concluded his opinion piece in USA TODAY with a similar charge to Netflix and to parents who use the service:

“Netflix executives need to adopt some old-school principles and realize that they’re either part of the problem or part of the solution. They can’t have it both ways. Unless Netflix is willing to better serve families and distance itself from these more problematic programming choices, or until Netflix shareholders use their voices to drive change from within the company, families would do better to choose alternative streaming services.”

Obviously, I don’t disagree. I just think it’s a shame that we’ve come to this point, when Netflix could have been perfectly successful with a more moderate repertoire of available programming.

What streaming services do you use in your home? Have you found a better family entertainment solution?
