During my homeroom class, we also get to watch movies or shows in Netflix that students want to enjoy together. It is a way to get together with the same grade friends and spend time watching media that we have common interest in. Every classmate in my homeroom loves this time not just because they can watch television, but to have a memorable time with their peers. My classmates and homeroom teacher found it easy to use Netflix because the media are diverse and the service is very easy to handle and use.
