Get PureFlix instead
I first heard of Netflix in 2004. Netflix would actually send you a movie DVD in the mail. You watch it, then return it to Netflix. This part of Netflix actually still exists if you can believe that.
Is it really a problem? The whole idea of torrents is that they facilitate decentralized sharing, and so while governments can go after torrent tracking aggregators (e.g. PirateBay), a new one will just pop up in its place, and the torrents themselves are unaffected.So I won't give money to pedo orgs, and despite it falling out of fashion you can still find everything on torrent trackers (you can stream an awful lot, too, even). Also, I'm gradually collecting media for just that reason - books are being banned or rewritten, movies and TV shows are being black holed or censored or "reimagined" to match the narrative, etc. You have to own media in a format that can not be changed or taken away (e.g. physical books, movies in physical format or a .mp4 file that you have on your harddrive). This is going to be a serious problem in the very near future, I think.
Until the Cuties thing made me stay away for good, I was one of those people well up until late 2019.

For a free streaming Netflix alternative with a decent enough selection, I recommend TubiTV. It comes with a catch, though - they pound you with ads every so often. I'm into enough old movies and indie movies, though, where there's always something to watch.
If you can use a torrent website I see no reason to pay for any streaming service. I gave Netflix a try and the only positive is the way it feeds you recommendations. The "HD" streaming quality is subpar, more compressed than a basic 720p .mkv file and their selection is very limited. I could find maybe 2 out of every 10 movies I searched for. There are no such issues with the free private trackers I use.

I connect a little stick computer to the TV's HDMI input:
