Netflix has essentially revolutionized the way we consume entertainment. Gone are the days of begging your mom to drive you to Blockbuster to rent a movie! You have everything you could ever watch at your fingertips—from classic throwback TV, to Netflix originals, there's a show for every mood and a movie for every feeling. It truly is a beautiful, beautiful thing.
Question is, are you doing everything you can to get the most out of Netflix? That is to say, are you even aware of just how much the site/app is capable of? Well, if you're in the dark, don't you worry! We're here to guide you to the light (in a non-creepy, cult-sounding way). The good people over at Thrillist compiled a list of Netflix tips, tricks, and hacks to optimize the experience for users. While the list as a whole was pretty kick-ass, I thought it best to narrow it down the best and brightest with lucky number 7! Take a look—
Netflix Enhancement Suite— A free app that syncs IMDb, Rotten Tomatoes, and Metacritic so you can weed through all of your options with the utmost information.
Selectively Remove Your History—This is great for a couple of reasons, but primarily if you share an account with someone and you're not so keen on sharing what you've been watching. Go ahead and login then head here to do it.
Down Flix Roulette—This is another free app that will scan the 4567887654345678 Netflix items for you! It even allows you to enter filters based on actor, genre, director, or other more specified key words.
Follow FHM's Netflix Guides—Pretty self-explanatory. Head here to check it all out!
Sign Out Of All Devices—This is fantastic if you're looking to kick people off your account. After a certain point, you gotta stop letting people leech onto your account! This is especially useful if more than 1 person has your info and all your device limit hits capacity and YOU'RE the one kicked off. Just go ahead to—"My Account > Sign Out Of All Devices"—then go ahead and change your damn password!!
Download/Stream Offline—This is UH-MAZING if you have a long public transit to/from work. It requires WiFi to download, but once you have the episode/movie on your phone you can watch it 300,000 below the Earth's surface with no problem!
