Twelve Gifts of Christmas: Gift Number Two

Miss Bennet? Mr. Santa Darcy says all truly accomplished young ladies of his acquaintance choose Austenflix for the holidays!

Did you know that Netflix offers 32 Jane Austen inspired movies available to subscribers? Some of the great titles include all seven of this years The Complete Jane Austen series on Masterpiece Classic: Persuasion 2007, Northanger Abbey 2007, Mansfield Park 2007, Miss Austen Regrets 2008, Pride and Prejudice 1995, Emma 1996 and Sense and Sensibility 2008. You can also see the classic 1970’s-1980’s adaptations of Jane Austen including one of my favorites, Pride and Prejudice staring David Rintoul and Elizabeth Garvie. They also offer the three part documentary Jane Austen: Life, Society and Works if you want to brush up on all things Jane.

Netflix is offering a great deal on gift subscriptions at reduced rates. You can create your own unique plan by selecting the number of DVD’s you prefer each month and how many months you want to give. Subscriptions start as low as $4.99 for two DVD’s per month up to $16.99 a month for unlimited selections.

I am totally hooked on my Netflix subscription. Their selection is incredible and I have seen so many Austen inspired movies, great Masterpiece Theater productions and BBC movies that I had been longing to seen for eons that I can think of no better gift to give the movie fan in your family or of your acquaintance.

Cheers, Laurel Ann, Austenprose

What a great idea! I never realized how extensive a selection Netflix had until I browsed through it after reading this. There are so many films I really want to watch, but don't want to buy and Blockbuster doesn't carry. A Netflix subscription might be added to my Christmas list shortly :)

Wow, what a great idea! I've always wondered how Nexflix worked and if it was expensive but you've convinced to read up on the details! Thanks again for sharing!

The best things about Netflix are

1.) The incredible selection
2.) The turn-around-time is like 2 days
3.) You can watch a bunch of movie right on your laptop!

Totallly hooked!

I did enjoy netflix, but now I don't seem to have much fre time so I had to cancel after 1 yr.

How lovely to have a Jane movie delivered to your door! Do you think the mailman knows the treasure he carries?
