Searching for the Originals
When you’re looking for a good show to watch and only know a few details, you might search for a few basic terms to see what shows up on the streaming service. All you have to do is search “Netflix” on your device. You’ll be able to see every TV show and movie that’s been released. You can also type in “Interactive” to see the original content that Netflix has released with many options that are available for the entire family to enjoy. You’ll be able to utilize this trick to find content in 4K as all you’ll need to do is enter the term into the search bar.
It’s no secret that there are hidden codes for some of the content that’s on Netflix. You can narrow the list even more by using various four-digit codes that you can find online. You can find everything from anime content to documentaries and movies that aren’t promoted on the service. When you look for codes, you’ll be able to see the number of shows and movies associated with each genre so that you know whether or not it’s worth your time to look further into what’s available.
If you watch Netflix on your computer, then you probably use a mouse to scroll through the content available and to control the content you watch once it’s playing. You can use the arrow keys to control the volume and to fast forward or rewind the content you’re watching without using the mouse. You can also use “M” to mute the sound and “F” to watch in full-screen. Spacebar pauses what you’re watching, and you simply hit it again to get it going again.
If you’re not at home or you just don’t want to deal with a computer or your TV, you might watch Netflix on your mobile device. If you have limited data, then you’ll find that Netflix and other streaming services can quickly deplete the data that you have. When you open the app for the service, you can click on “More” to pull up a menu that can take you to Cellular Data Usage.
You want to use Wi-Fi only so that you use the service with a Wi-Fi connection instead of the data on your mobile device. There’s also an option to change the settings so that you’re not using as much data. Keep in mind that you might not have the best quality, but you won’t use all of the data that you have.
