Good tidings, sad apartment dweller, and count your blessings this holiday season: the Netflix Yule log is here.
In olden times, our grandparents needed a television or VHS tape to watch images of a crackling fire. But now, through the miracle of streaming, you can warm yourself by the light of someone else’s filmed fire from your laptop, iPad, or other device.
No longer do you need to pay the cable bill and huddle around the flatscreen in the den. With the Netflix streaming Yule log, you can enjoy a crackling fire in the bathroom, just like Jon Huntsman.
In the spirit of Christmas cheer, Netflix is even making a trailer of the the fire available to non-subscribers at YouTube. Come, friends: Let us look at pictures of cocoa and enjoy the fire together.
