Netflix is great for having a little control over what Luke watches on TV. He does this routine every time we start an episode.
We had been living without cable for the first 2 1/2 years of his life (and didn’t really miss it). When we moved, we decided we would try cable. We set the DVR to record a couple Curious George cartoons. When Luke watched the first one and it paused in the middle for a commercial, he didn’t know what to do. He thought it was broke. After that, we decided it made sense to keep Netflix around. Without commercials, we don’t have to be as concerned with him being barraged with the onslaught of advertisements we are normally subjected to.
