1. Create Multiple Profiles
It’s always a good idea to create multiple profiles on your Netflix account. If you use Netflix with with multiple people, you don’t want them to impact your future recommendation. Also having multiple profiles allows for the separating the programming you would like to watch.
You’re allowed up to five profiles.

I would also recommend removing shows from your viewing history that you didn’t like so they also don’t influence recommendations on your homepage of Netflix.
3. Netflix Roulette
Sometimes it can be difficult to find a show to watch on Netflix. So, let’s Netflix Roulette pick for you.
Visit the netflixroulette.net and select your criteria from the options and then click on spin. It will suggest the shows or movies that you can watch.

8. Minimize Buffering
There may be times when you’re watching a program on Netflix and you keep getting the dreaded buffering icon instead of exiting the program. In order to solve this, go to settings and change the video quality.
You can change the audio and video quality while streaming. This one is little tricky, hold down the Ctrl+Shift and Alt keys all at thesame time, then press S to bring up the bitrate menu. Select lower numbers for audio and video bitrate and then select override. Hopefully, this will give you a smoother streaming experience. To change things back to normal, select reset.
9. What’s new on Netflix
There are several places on the internet to find out what is new on Netflix. A site which I like most is www.whats-on-netflix.com
