Netflix & Amazon Prime
We now have two TVs equipped with Netflix and Amazon Prime access in the LAC. We also have the ability to order DVDs from the website upon request. We have a mobile "Roku" unit that can be set up in any classroom in order to show Netflix movies. Please consult the catalog online at www.netflix.com to see which titles are available to "watch instantly" and which titles are available to order on DVD. All foreign titles on Netflix should have English subtitles.
