The “net” in Netflix might as well stand for “network.” The streaming service built up a following for its original programming with House of Cards, made us glad that binge-watching isn’t illegal with Orange is the New Black and Making a Murderer, and got us hooked on the marvelous Jessica Jones.
With so many choices, it’s easy to let things stack up in the queue. Do you binge-watch The X-Files in advance of the show’s return on Fox? Or watch Agent Scully and Mr. Christian Grey himself in the chilling U.K. series The Fall? Maybe you want to catch up on movies you missed in the theaters, or re-watch old favorites.
Whatever you choose, you won’t be alone. November data from RBC Capital Markets found that 51 percent of Americans use Netflix.
Getting started is as easy as picking a show and pressing play. However, there are a few tricks that you can use to get the most out of your viewing experience. Check out our slideshow for more.
