I was recently selected as one of the Stream Team members by Netflix Canada! It came as a surprise and I had to pinch myself few times to confirm that it is indeed for real 🙂 For anyone who is not familiar with this awesome company (because you are still living in the stone age! lol just kidding!), Netflix is the world’s largest Internet movie subscription service, period!
As a member of the Stream Team, I would get a fun monthly newsletter from Netflix Canada with movie and TV suggestions, craft ideas, recipes and other easy and interesting content to post on the blog. I would write about them for my readers so that the Netflix fans among you will get loads of ideas on popular movies and TV shows and what is trending at the moment and what is new in the market!
In return for my participation, I would get admittance to advance screeners to new Netflix content, exciting mailers and invitations to quarterly Stream Team events at some of the hottest restaurants and event spaces in Toronto. Oh, and did I mention the free Netflix subscription for a year and a cool streaming device to make my life with Netflix easier?
Is this amazing or what?
As part of welcoming the newest Stream Team members, Netflix organized a fun launch party at Ritz Carlton Hotel in Toronto on the day of the Oscars, March 2nd. I was blown away when they mentioned that a Taxi will come to pick me up and that I dont have to arrange my own transportation! That was a first in my entire blogging career! I was feeling like Cindrella already 🙂
The party at the Ritz Carlton was a stunner! I met other members of the Stream Team and it was indeed a honor to meet some fabulous bloggers in my area IRL (In Real Life)!
We received a warm welcome from the Netflix Team and their make up team was waiting to doll us up! Yup! We were told that we would be sitting with the Celebrity make up artists and hair stylists for touch ups before the party begins! After all, it was the Oscar night, right? And we all need a piece of lime light 🙂
After the hair and make up touch ups, we were led to meet Jenny McCabe, Director of Global Media Relations, Netflix. She was amazing!
She talked to us about What is the latest going on with Netflix among other things. Jenny had answers for questions thrown her way from the group and we learned about which shows are coming back for yet another season, which shows are done with and also several other inside scoops which I am not going to tell you yet 😉
After wards, we had dinner and it was, needless to say, amazing as well.
I want to stop gushing about that evening but it seems to be impossible at the moment. Hope you will bear with me! 🙂
After the dinner and desserts (yum) we sat and watched the Oscars late into the night, judging the best dressed and the worst dressed celebrities, predicting the Best Actor, Actress, Movie and such!
Looking back, It was a fun and a memorable night which I will not be forgetting for quite some time…
So, what all this means to you guys?
Well, you can expect Netflix news from me on a monthly basis where you get to read and find out about the new shows and movie suggestions you could stream, craft ideas and recipes to try at home etc.
This is awesome, I know! I will do my best to bring to you everything that is Netflix and hope you will enjoy what you see here going forward from the Stream Team Canada!
