We've been on netflix since it appeared in France, and are happy with it although do find the content rather limited (compared to US version, but that is understandable). We have the basic two device set-up so the kids can watch something while I watch another (good for keeping amused while doing cooking and dishes!)
In order to simplify things and watch netflix on the tv, instead of passing by the box (grrr orange yuck) we use chromecast, which is great. It is a device that costs about 35€, plugs directly into the tv, then can controlled by a device (computer, phone or tablette with the netflix app) to appear on the tv. It can also be used to watch other content (photos, video, etc) from those devices.
I like netflix for the series - got to watch all the seasons except the last of Downton Abbey in one flurry, then hit Breaking bad, then Modern family, etc. The kids selection is rather poor for the moment, but we still find stuff (if the kids agree, not easy with a 4 1/2 yr girl and an almost 8 yr boy no matter what the service).
voilà, hope that helps.
