Netflix Stream TeamReady to ring in the New Year? Letting the kids stay up to do it with you? According to a recent survey by Netflix, "9 is the new midnight" for families in the U.S., with 48% of parents surveyed stating that they'd ring in the new year by 9 p.m. Keeping the tradition that started last year alive, Netflix wants to help make that famous 10-second countdown as fun (and early) as possible, with exclusive, 2-minute New Year's Eve Countdown episodes of some favorite Netflix Original Series - ALL HAIL KING JULIEN, INSPECTOR GADGET, MR. PEABODY & SHERMAN, PUFFIN ROCK, and two of our favorites, CARE BEARS & COUSINS and PROJECT Mc2. Tonight (12/31/15), members of the Netflix #StreamTeam (myself included) will be sharing our New Year's Adventures on social media. Follow along and get ready to rock into 2016!

Netflix #StreamTeamThis week, my friends at Netflix released the results of a new survey that was conducted this Spring among subscribers of the streaming service in Brazil, Canada, Mexico, the UK, Germany, France, and of course, the US.

NETFLIX Stream TeamI posted a picture on Instagram the other day that my wife and I had been joking about. As the girls had just been tucked-in the night before, Jen and I sat down to watch another episode of the breakthrough MARVEL smash DAREDEVIL on Netflix. We don't have a lot of time for "binge watching" (though it's been very tempting), so we're on about episode 10 right now. The funny thing was how the "Recently Watched" and "Top Picks for James" reflected how much of our viewing is dictated by our girls. Yes, you can set-up individual profiles for the family (there's even a "KIDS" one), but I tend to use my own on our Vizio Smart TV just for the sake of convenience. What my wife said is that "people who would see these would either figure you have daughters, or are a total creep." Take a look...
