Is anyone else sooo looking forward to a lovely Christmas break with lots of snuggling on the sofa binge watching TV?! I’ve got our Netflix button ready! Christmas is always so busy with three children and all their different Christmas events and work is really busy in the festive season too. I can’t wait for a little downtime!
So in preparation for all this lazing in front of the box that I plan to do I thought I would share some awesome Netflix hacks with you all. These tips and tricks come straight from the Netflix team themselves so they are goodies!
Type “Netflix” into the search bar to see a complete list of Netflix originals, all in one place. We’re talking hit shows like Stranger Things, Orange is the New Black and The Killing. There’s loads!
Save your precious data!
The Netflix mobile app lets you choose your Cellular Data Usage setting—Wi-Fi Only, Low, Medium, High, and Unlimited. Netflix can stream buffer-free with even the weakest of Internet connections. You can also set limits to ensure you don’t go over your data allowance… RESULT!
Picky about the way subtitles look? Who isn’t! Adjust everything from the font to the colour by going to Preferences > Account > Subtitle Appearance.
Netflix On Holiday
If you’re planning a holiday, there’s a pretty good chance your account will continue to work like magic. You will also have access to all the titles available in that region while you’re over there.
Next time Pretty Little Liars starts buffering, use Fast.com to to check the download speeds you’re getting from your internet service provider.
These five keyboard shortcuts will help you navigate Netflix like a pro:
– F will give you full screen; Esc will take you out of it
– The spacebar will pause and play
– Shift + Right Arrow will fast forward; Shift + Left Arrow will rewind
Don’t forget to download!
In the ‘Available to Download’ section on your mobile or tablet you can select the arrow next to your chosen episode or film to start the download. You can then watch on the go, be it on the tube, bus or even in the air!
On each account, you can create 5 profiles ensuring your recommendations are tailored to your tastes. Top Tip: Create a “Date Night’ or “Family” profile for those times you like to watch something together.
I hope that this list helps you to make the most of your Netflix experience this holiday season! Enjoy binge watching your favourite shows!
