Netflix currently unveiled there’s actually a complete class of ‘elite’ watchers who not only binge on content but actually begin viewing the moment a new show comes and do not stop until they’ve watched the entire season. Straight, Through.
Those people probably do not require any tips on how to view Netflix.
For the rest of us, however, we’ve collected some tricks- counting some form Netflix itself- to help you get the most out of your marathon-watching sessions.
So, here’s to the lazy weekend and rainy days spent basking in the shining light of your television screen:
Uncover hidden categories: One well-liked Netflix, ‘hack’ that’s found its path around the Internet is a comprehensive list of the companies’ “genre codes’, which generate those super-particular recommendations like ‘Understated British dramas based on books.”
You can see a complete list of categories at the website Ogres-Crypt, or you can just attempt playing around with them yourself by using www.netflix.com/browse/genre/ and following it up with a haphazard number up to 5 digits. Try birthdays, anniversaries, PIN numbers who knows? You may find something fresh and stimulating, such as ‘Classic visually striking French-language motion pictures.”
Not every code will have a film attached to it since streaming roaster of Netflix rotates constantly. But that’s part of the enjoyment, right?
Find more uses for the “profiles” aspect: Do you share your streaming service’s account with your brother but we have super-separate taste in motion pictures? Netflix has a built-in aspect called ‘profiles’ made to keep your queues from cross-fertilizing.
Even if you’re only using your account yourself, you can still use profiles to your benefits and make queues to fit separate moods. In the mood for a good scare? Make a scary profile. Wish to explore the world from your couch? Try a ‘traveler’ profile with outbound movies.
You can make up to five profiles on any account.
Edit your viewing history: So, it happened. You viewed Fuller House against the suggestion of critics, buddies, family and health experts, and how it’s affecting your suggestions. Never afraid. You can efface that fault or any others you may make by heading into your account of Netflix settings, scrolling down to ‘My Profile’ and finding, ‘Viewing history’.
It’s not that facile to delete things those have been watched by you; you have to click the little ‘x’ next to each film title you wish to nix. You can delete entire series at once, however. Netflix will delete titles that you have crossed off from your watching history with a day.
Keyboard shortcuts: If you’re viewing on your system, you may wish to take benefit of a few of these handy keyboard shortcuts.
Rewind of fast-forwarding 10 seconds with cmd (or ctrl) left arrow and cmd (or ctrl) right arrow

Miscellaneous tips: If you’re somewhere where you cannot turn the volume loud, keep in mind that Netflix has the English language closed captioning on every content- that could support you keep your watching habits silent, or even just help you decode some accents. You can change how the subtitles look in your settings menu, in case you errand yellow over white or vice-versa.
