Imagining a life without Netflix is a nightmare for many people. Especially when Netflix is available online in almost all the countries in the world. If you are a frequent traveler then you know you are going to get a better sleep with your favorite shows. I am a Netflix user like most of the USA citizens, and I know how people love their online media. Online content sites like Netflix and Hulu has changed the way people consume media.
The era of Netflix is way better than our traditional cable TV subscription. But you know there is always room for improvements and Netflix is no exception. Unlike other Netflix user, I am a tech geek, and love to experiment things.
Here is some of the best hack(or you can call tricks) for Netflix that will improve the way you use Netflix.
Access Netflix Content for Free
Netflix is a subscription-based service, and we all know that. Imagine you were/are not able to pay for a month due to various reason like card block. In that scenario, you may not want to miss your Netflix content. Here you can use Netflix as a free movie streaming service by creating a new account. Netflix features 14-days trial for new users, and you can get that 14 days to access everything for free.
Note- This trick is for informational purpose and you should not misuse that.
Add IMDb Ratings, Rotten Tomatoes ratings and Trailer
We all want to enhance our Netflix experience and with this hack, you can do that. If you are a Google Chrome user, then I recommend you to install an extension called Netflix Enhancement Suite. This is a free plugin that adds some addition feature to your Netflix. Some of its cool features are ratings from different sources like Rotten Tomatoes and IMDb, Trailer and other info.
Use VPN to Get the Most out of your Subscription
So, you live in the USA and you watch all the show available for the USA. Have you ever imagined that what other countries are viewing on their Netflix? Netflix uses country redirection to guess in which country you are accessing Netflix and shows you the shows that available for that country. Netflix has different shows for different countries, and that shows are only exclusive for that particular country. But you can trick the Netflix by using any free or Paid VPN to change your country. Say you live in the USA and in your VPN you have selected Germany that means your Netflix now open Germany version of Netflix where you can watch shows that are only available for Germany.
There are many free and paid VPN available, but I would suggest you the Hola Extension for Chrome and Mozilla Firefox browser. Hola is completely free, and it serves what it claims.
Note- We have recently seeing some debates over the use of VPN as security issue. So use it wisely.
These hacks or tricks are just WOW! You just need to try them once and believe me you will be in love with these Netflix hacks.
