Netflix has become a staple in our home. We enjoy reviewing the new releases every month. The only thing about Netflix was the limitations for unlimited high speed in Canada. I’m happy to announce that both Rogers and Bell offer unlimited high speed but…..you pretty much have to give up your first born. I hope we soon catch up with the States in regards to Internet and Wireless fees.
With that said, here are the latest television and movie releases on Netflix this month!
