I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s recieved little pop-ups from Netflix. You’ve watched an entire season of Supernatural in one day, are you still watching?
Like that’s something to be ashamed of.
Then it was, you’ve been watching Supernatural for 48 hours straight, do we need to call 9-1-1 to send help.
Right, like I can’t start watching TV on Friday night and power through until Sunday.
At 72 hours, the messages get a little ridiculous. I mean, growing up I would store my gum on a little tray to chew the next morning, so I don’t think it’s too much of a stretch to stick potato chips on my chin when I passed out for fifteen minutes.
If Netflix really cared, it would do more than just ask if I want to continue watching.
Let’s face it many of us stream videos on gaming systems and computers. Most of those devices have cameras on them. Netflix could send a pop-up message and demand that we get off the couch before watching the next episode.
Or better yet, it could yell at us to drop and give Netflix 20 before it would allow the next episode to start. For those who want a little international flavor, it could yell at you in various languages. And lastly for all you masochists, it could even critique your position and your technique and post the worst ones on YouTube.
With a little software change and maybe a small fee, Netflix could be your next Gym Teacher.
