With so many new exciting titles, several Netflix users will be spending a significant amount of time on the streaming service next month. While loads of people will be binge-watching TV shows and movies, most don't even know that they could make their binge-watching experience much more enjoyable. Check out a list of Netflix hacks below to optimize your next binge-watching session.
1. Make Sure You're Streaming in HD
Many subscribers are paying for HD on Netflix, but most have been watching all their favorite TV shows and movies in the default low quality. Fortunately, it's an easy fix.
First, go to your account page. Next, click on Plan Details to check your subscription settings. In the event that you are paying for HD, then click on Playback settings and select the definition you prefer.
A word of warning though, you may want to make sure you are connected to Wi-Fi before streaming in HD because it will use up your data very quickly if not.
2. No More Buffering
After you've finally picked out what to watch, the last thing you want to do is to wait for it to load. If you don't have the greatest Internet connection, there is a work around fix that could make a huge difference.
On Netflix, there is actually a "secret menu." For a more optimal streaming experience, you can increase or decrease the video bitrate. Access the "secret menu" on your computer by holding down Ctrl + Shift + Opt/Alt + S. Then click Override.
3. Forget Netflix Searching
Eliminating the time-consuming decision-making process of picking out what to watch on Netflix is a tool that most subscribers would likely enjoy. Thankfully, it can be done with one simple step.
The cure for binge-watching indecisiveness is a tool called Flix Roulette. This add-on will choose your entertainment for you. If you don't fully trust Flix Roulette, you can point it in a specific direction by narrowing down the field by medium, genre, rating, actor, director, and/or keyword if you'd like.
4. Trick Out Your Dashboard
You can totally deck out your Netflix dashboard by downloading a tool called the Netflix enhancer.
This app will add a number of various functions like trailers, Rotten Tomatoes ratings, and links to the IMDB profile for every title.
5. Enjoy Guilt-Free Binge-Watching
Anyone that likes to frequently embark on a binge-watching session on Netflix is likely familiar with the "Are You Still Watching?" question that pops up every few episodes. Fortunately, this judgmental question can be eliminated from your account so you don't feel quite as guilty about watching Orange is the New Black on the couch all day.
Remove this periodic check-in with a Google Chrome extension called Flix Assist. It does away with both the "Are You Still Watching?" feature as well as the countdown between every episode.
6. Re-Define Your Search Results
Surfing through the enormous Netflix library is an overwhelming task that often times doesn't give the best opportunity to find exactly what you want to watch.
On Netflix there is actually a list of more than 76,000 super-specific subgenres. You can narrow down your search to content as specific as "Movies Based on Children's Books" or even the "Steamiest" movies and TV shows available for streaming.
