Netflix shows and plans

If you are a fan of the original "Addams Family," you've probably watched the new "Wednesday" series on Netflix, tracing the further adventures of the family's teenage daughter. If you haven’t, you're in for a treat, and it’s best if you binge-watch it in one session.

But "Wednesday" isn’t the only series that will make you lose track of time as you become enthralled with thrilling plot twists and dark family secrets. There are hundreds of excellent shows on the streaming service, many of which are just waiting to be explored, from recent releases such as "Ginny & Georgia" and "That '90s Show" to older winners including "The Kominsky Method" and "Firefly Lane."

Of course, you’ll need a streaming device and a Netflix account to start, and there are several tiers to choose from, depending on your streaming setup.

  • The Basic with Ads plan is available for watching on one device at a time, and there's advertising during episodes. Some films and series are unavailable, but you can watch others in HD resolution.
  • The Basic plan is also for only one device, but there are no ads, and you can access all the content.
  • The Standard tier is $8 more expensive than the Basic with Ads plan, but there are several advantages. You can watch all the available shows and films on two devices at the same time, the content is streamed in full HD, there are no ads, and you can download certain films.
  • The Premium tier is the most expensive and lets you stream content in ultra HD, such as 4K. The plan lets you stream content on four devices simultaneously, which is great for large families. You also have access to all the available shows, and you can download content to up to four devices.

For most users, the Basic plan is the best deal for binge-watching, as you don’t have to sit through commercials, and the streaming resolution is sufficient. You can even watch it on a tablet.
