Netflix literally rules everyone’s mind mind and leisure time now-a-days. Unless you have been living under a rock or unconsciously lagging behind in catching up with the changing times, at some point of your monotonous existence you have been tempted to subscribe to the much talked about online streaming service i.e. Netflix. Initially it was launched only in the US but now it is available in almost every binge watching countries of the world. It’s easy to use, affordable and highly addictive to say the least. Its contents are updated on a regular basis and requires a little bit of presence of mind and some external guidance to access all the hidden gems on your beloved platform. As it turns out just sticking to the home page and searching for the popular titles that you have heard of or the ones which are heavily publicized will not help you to get access to the various other programs available on it. Just like most of the websites out there a few odd add-ons will help you to better enjoy its benefits. So here are a few tips and tricks to get the most out of your Netflix subscription.
1. Ever heard of the Random Button?
As the name itself suggests the Random button enables you to choose randomly when you are done watching whatever is available on the home page. It is an Allflicks extension exclusively for Chrome users which will add a random button feature on your browser. You just need to click on it and boom a random choice of film or TV show is offered to you. It’s almost like taking a risk as sometimes the suggestion may not be what you were looking for but it satiates your curiosity to experiment with different genres of entertainment. It is also highly recommended as it brings to the fore many hidden titles on Netflix which you would have missed out on otherwise. Oh and by the way you need to disable ‘AdBlock’ for the Random button to function.
2. Make Use of the Genre Search Option
Netflix offers you the luxury of choosing from its assorted lists of collection of TV shows, films and documentaries of different genres. So why not make use of it. Everything is divided according to its genre such as action, comedy, thriller etc. It saves your precious time and also gives you the opportunity to search for exactly what you are looking for.
3. The Quality of Videos Matter
The lower the quality of the videos you’re streaming the more you can enjoy the benefit of your internet/broadband package. Netflix is a platform mostly for binge watching shows so naturally it consumes a lot of internet data. So keeping your video resolution in check will enable you to enjoy the process longer and probably in a smoother manner. However it will be worthless exercise to watch videos in a very low quality so the best option is to keep it in the medium resolution and watch. If you can afford as much internet as you wish or have a subscription to an unlimited pack for a month and you are the only user then you may very well go knock yourself out.
