In addition to the recent addition of HGTV’s lineup on October 1st, Netflix has added a sizable portion (get it?) of Food Network and Travel Channel’s lineups on October 3rd. Like HGTV, many of them are listed as “Collections” – which simply have a collection of top episodes, not all of the episodes ever aired. I’m personally excited about Chopped finally being added, because as a Hulu Plus subscriber, the show is set to “online only” – so we couldn’t watch it on our TV via Amazon Fire TV; now we can via Netflix. Also a quick mention to The Boxcar Children, a personal childhood favorite in book form added today, October 4th, 2014.
