But to ease your pain lest you become too attached to these transient TV-framed treats, Netflix is constantly adding new items for you to stream. Movies and a slew of televisions series are uploaded each week, and sometimes it can even get a bit tricky in trying to stay up-to-date on all of the new offerings available.
