TIME collated some Netflix hacks so that users can get the most out of the service. First up, with the site's evolving list of movies and TV shows, users can use third-party websites such as Instant Watcher and What's New On Netflix to view the titles available.
Instant Watcher can also be used to search for quality movies from the website. It has more filters than the default search options on Neflix. Can I Stream It or WhereToWatch can be used to find where you can legally stream movies not found on the service.
Mobile devices can be used to control Netflix remotely on the PlayStation 3. Customers just need to make sure that the two gadgets are connected on the same Wi-Fi network.
Netflix is able to recommend better titles for users only if they provide the company more information on their preferences. You can rate titles regularly and honestly so that the website can suggest movies and shows that will suit your taste.
Moreover, it was suggested that users can opt to watch shows in lower resolution to avoid buffering. The code Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, Up, Up, Up, Up can be used on video game consoles to deactivate the app and reboot.
BGR has also listed down five free tools that Netflix users can utilize. These services and plugins serve different functions to improve your streaming experience.
Chrome extension Flix Plus allows users to customize Netflix and hides episode spoiler images. Netflix Party is another extension that enables friends to watch movies or shows together. "It synchronizes video playback and adds group chat," the website wrote.
Super Browse gives access to Netflix's secret categories while New on Netflix gives daily updates on the current titles. What Is My Movie helps users find any movie by describing the things that one vaguely remembers in it.
