To say that Netflix has changed the way we consume media is an understatement. The endless library of video content is one of the most addictive resources of our generation and we're not going to lie, we have no intention of quitting anytime soon. That said, we're always looking for ways to maximize our Netflix pleasure. It may sound like an oxymoron, but we believe there is such a thing as efficient bingeing. Scroll through for the top ways to streamline your next Netflix session.
Limit your decision making. Let’s be honest, the biggest time suck when you want to binge on a series is choosing what to watch. Flix Roulette eliminates this obstacle. The miracle device asks you for keywords, directors, and actors you love and plays a random selection of titles that fits those parameters. No decision making required. Just pure bingeing.
Expand your library. Use an unblocker like Hola (which is free) or Media Hint to gain access to the Netflix inventories from other countries. Yes, different countries have different libraries. All-access Netflix will unlock hundreds of new titles. There are some securities risks with Hola, so unblock at your own risk.
Watch with friends, virtually. Rabbit, the video chat service, enables you to launch a window that can be viewed by all parties in the chat. This means that you can launch Netflix on a window and video chat and message in real time as you watch. It's the perfect way to catch up on House of Cards when you're in a long-distance relationship.
Browse like an insider. Ever find yourself wanting to search specific subcategories instead of your general action or romance genres? What's On Netflix, aka the Netflix Bible, lets you do just that. The encyclopedia of all things Netflix provides ID codes that you can add to a provided Netflix URL that will send you exactly where you want to go. For example, extension 6384 searches tearjerkers. What's On Netflix will make you realize you've only scratched the surface of Netflix possibilities.
Add a smorgasbord of add-ons. Download the Netflix Enhancement Suite, a free device that enables you to see great reviews (like Rotten Tomato and Metacritic), trailers, and other info for every Netflix title. The Netflix Enhancement Suite is the best way to limit your viewing to quality titles only.
