Addressing my obviously outdated ideas on Netflix and handheld devices…
If I’m at home there are several large screens to watch content, TV, PC monitor. Also with a fast stable internet connection.
If I’m out, well I’m out and I’m not going to sit down at watch TV or movie on my phone. I’m out doing stuff, driving the car, shopping in Tesco or whatever.
I can understand those with poor internet connection options wanting to use mobile data as a temporary solution but long term? I have used my phone as a hotspot for a laptop when I was in a hotel with dreadful WiFi. However, I could not imagine using it for extended periods.
My phone is used for streaming music while I drive, local radio is particularly bad where I live. Navigation and of course communication. I have never thought of using my phone to watch a video. I’ll read some news to pass the time on poop-naps and such. I would end up with severe dead leg if I fired up Netflix sat on the crapper.
I guess my willingness to acsept new tech at my age dose not extend to all of the use cases. Watching long form video content being one of them.
