There is no turning back now; we are officially full steam ahead into the Christmas holiday. That means a variety of things to some and nothing at all to others. Before I became a Mom Christmas had all but died in my world. People weren’t just vying to buy grown adults presents so it was no longer on my radar. After having a baby something about motherhood changed Christmas for me. I now saw Christmas through my kid’s eyes.

Growing up I would crowd around the big back TV to watch some of my favorite Christmas movies. Although big back TV’s are no longer a thing I still enjoy a front row seat in front of the TV to watch Christmas classics with my kids. My addiction to TV is no secret; I would let some other things go before I would cut my cable off. My friend loves TV (almost) as much as me and loves watching Netflix but she always found that it would buffer in the middle of the show. She didn’t think she could afford to upgrade her broadband to stop the buffering but she did a broadband comparison and found a better service that was cheaper than her current plan. Now she streams happy!
If you already use Netflix, login into Netflix right from the Apps section of the Main Menu of X1, or any Netflix program On Demand. If you are new to Netflix, you can sign up right on X1 and get one month free.
Christmas came early for XFINITY customers, have you heard? A union took place and might have missed it. I didn’t, because dedication but XFINITY X1 and Netflix done Netflix and chilled. What does that mean? This means they hooked up and you can now access your Netflix account from your cable remote. No more searching for a third party remote.
If you have a voice remote you can say “Orange is the New Black” and it will pop up on your TV screen.
While I’m thrilled about this new coupling LittleCuteLips is over the moon about it. Prior to said coupling she could only watch Netflix in the living room via a third party or the basement via our video game console. Babe and I run the TV in the living room and the Man-Child likes to play video games in the basement. This left LittleCuteLips with her lips poked out. I don’t know if you are familiar with 4 year old’s but they have major tude.
Now that Netflix is Bae to XFINITY X1 this is one problem solved. She can watch Netflix in her own room on her own TV. INSERT PRAISE BREAK. Note: This is not her room.
Beat Bugs is her favorite thing to watch, but the menu is really easy for her to navigate without assistance.
Full disclosure I haven’t watched all of the shows the kids watch. I listen out and make sure they are age appropriate but that is it. As much as I’ve heard about the Beat Bugs I had no idea it was a Netflix original series. I’ve watched a couple of episodes only because the songs were stuck in my head already. It is a cute show. The Man-Child is 12 so his shows/movies have changed. He has been catching up on all the Super Hero movies on Netflix.
I told you she is hooked, peep the bars under each episode to see how much she has watched. She stops at the same spot at the end of each episode and moves on. That is funny.
Beat Bugs is an Australian-Canadian animated children’s television series. The theme song is All You Need Is Love by the Beatles which is why it was stuck in my head. I had to give the kids a quick music lesson on who the Beatles were and why I already knew the song.
All is right with the world in our home and we are holiday ready with XFINITY X1 and Netflix.
