But you knew all that, right? You want some tips and tricks for getting the most out of Netflix. Here we go!
Managing Your Queue
With so many choices on Netflix, it’s nearly impossible to remember what you wanted to watch last month, but never got around to doing it. Maybe one movie is more important than the other, but you don’t know how to prioritize it.
Check this out.
Use ‘My List’ to keep track of what’s expiring. First, search for the movie or TV show you want to watch. Then, add it to ‘My List.’ Now when you go to ‘My List,’ you’ll see the expiration date under the title and thumbnail picture. Use the date to prioritize what to watch first, based on what’s expiring soon.
Clearing Your Viewing History
If you share a Netflix account with someone (I won’t tell!) you might not want them to know what you’ve been watching. We’ve all been there. You don’t want Grandma to know you’ve been watching Magic Mike on a non-stop loops.
There’s a solution.
Login to your account on your computer, then go to “Viewing History.” Now you can delete individual titles from the list. (But you can’t delete Magic Mike XXL from your memory.
Get Better Viewing Quality

Here’s one way to make sure you’re getting the best picture on Netflix.

Remember, streaming in HD will burn through data, so make sure you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network.
