I have an old National brand VHS player at home. Back in the 90s, my family was into Bangla and Indian television dramas, and the occasional film. TV shows that you wanted to watch again or have in collection – they needed to be stored in cassettes. I still have a few, in a box that's somewhere in my house, safely tucked away.
I also have a Netflix subscription. It's just an application on my phone, also available on my computer. It has separate accounts for each family member. TV shows and movies? Yes, it does have "quite a few" in its collection. Last I read, it had more than 12000 content on offer. I don't have to worry about what to watch, nor do I have to worry about its safety; it's password protected.
Technology, you beauty.
