Get more out of Netflix with these 6 tips

Discover possibilities you didn't even know existed!

Netflix – something I can no longer do without. All those fabulous new series and movies, plus classics I haven't seen in years. And the offer is constantly updated. But did you know that you can get even more out of Netflix? Here are 5 super tips, free of charge:

  1. Find the hidden categories

    Besides the usual categories, Netflix has pages dedicated to the most specific things you can imagine. Personally, I'm interested in the pages devoted to Belgian movies or to movies for children of a particular age group. But lots of other pages too. Find out how it works here.

  2. Pimp your subtitles

    The only thing I didn't really like about Netflix were the ugly yellow subtitles. But then I discovered you can totally adapt them to your own taste:

    Step 1: Under the profile, click "Your account".
    Step 2: In the "My profile" section, click "Subtitle appearance".
    Step 3: Here, you can change not just the color but also the font, size and shadow of the subtitles.
    Step 4: Finally, click "Save" and you're done.

  3. Change your language to English, and a whole new world opens up

    In Dutch, Netflix has quite an extensive offering. But things can always get better! You can make the offering even larger by setting the language to English. This way, you get series and movies from the US and the UK for which there are still no Dutch subtitles available. This is often the case with brand-new series that haven't been released here yet.

  4. Use handy shortcuts

    Do you click to Netflix on your computer? In that case, certain keys will come in handy. Navigate quickly and make things easier for yourself:

    • "Space bar": Pause
    • "Shift" + "left arrow": Rewind
    • "Shift" + "right arrow": Fast forward
    • "F": Full screen
    • "Esc": Exit full screen
    • "M": Mute the sound

  5. Or just watch Netflix via your Proximus TV decoder
