But what do you watch? It can tough to choose with all the options available.
You can pretty much rule out winter holiday films because you'll want to save those for later in the year.
Horror is great, but, for the most part, it's better to save the scary stuff for fall.
Even with all the content that you rule out, there are still so many choices and it can get overwhelming. You just end up clicking around for 30 minutes and re-watching The Office again. (Which isn't all that bad, really.)
If you need suggestions on what the stream while you're staying cool indoors, then look no further as we've got some recommendations for you, from a story first shared by What's On Netflix.
