Take Netflix to the next level with these not-so-secret hacks

Netflix is one of the best streaming services out there - award winning original shows, good user interface and a low price tag (even lower if you're a Netflix moocher and someone else is picking up the bill!). But if you're sticking to original recipe Netflix, you're missing out on a whole bunch of awesome features. Here's our top tips to take Netflix to the next level.

Rotate the screen with Netflix Flip

You know that feeling when you've been chain watching a series in bed, and you're getting seriously bored of watching the characters sideways? Wave goodbye to it with Netflix Flip, an awesome Chrome extension that allows you to spin Netflix 90 degrees. There's literally no need to get up.

Embrace your inner critic

Netflix has some great algorithms, but they can only work if you make them work. Start rating the things you're watching, and Netflix will start making better and better guesses at what you'll enjoy. It's also worth using the 'My List' function for better recommendations. Less scrolling, more watching. 

Watch Netflix long-distance

Trying to watch the new episode of The Good Place with your partner, but getting tired of them being two or three seconds ahead? Download the Chrome extension Netflix Party and you can watch remotely with friends! It even adds a group chat so you can argue about whether frozen yogurt is delicious or disgusting.

Become a Netflix guinea pig

Want to get the newest Netflix features first? If you're a real Netflix junkie, head to your Account, and then hit Test Participation. Turn that switch on, and you'll be fed new features (like the Skip Intro button) weeks and even months before everyone else. Perfect for convincing your friends that you can see into the future. 

Choose what's being added

Are you absolutely desperate to see a certain series, but can't track it down anywhere? You can send a cheeky request to Netflix to let them know what you'd like to watch. You get to choose three titles per request, so pick wisely! If a ton of people request the same show, it's likely that Netflix will take notice.

Go to town on special features

DVDs may be on the way out, but do you miss all those lovely trailers and making-of segments? Head to 'Trailers and More' and you can access a ton of special features for a load of different shows; interviews, behind-the-scenes footage, trailers for new seasons and more.

The whole of our team adhere to the same values, beliefs and policies - the principles that were written when Transcendit first formed in 2000. Whether you come to us for a refurbished computer, cloud services or recovery backup you can be confident that you'll always receive the same excellent service.

The Transcendit way outlines how we do business; following the same straightforward principles with every client and customer, regardless of how big or small they may be.

That means we get to know you and your business. We offer you a friendly, professional and efficient service, and we'll always be honest with you.
We understand that not everybody speaks fluent IT, so we try to explain things in a way that is simple and clear. We always spend as much time as is necessary explaining things to you.
If you need to talk to us about something, no matter how insignificant, we are only ever a phone call away – and we’re never too busy to make you a cup of tea and have a sit down with you in person.
We understand how frustrating it can be when things are late. When we schedule an appointment with you, we are there when you’re expecting us. If something prevents us from getting there, we always call you in advance to let you know.
Sometimes things can go wrong, but we never lie to you or try to cover something up. If things go askew we tell you what’s happened and how we plan to prevent it affecting your business.
We want you to continuously benefit from working with us. We regularly discuss your business and make suggestions for improving systems and processes wherever we can – but we never try to push you into a purchase.
When we quote a fixed price, that's always the amount we charge – you won’t find any nasty surprises on a bill from us. If you are paying by time and materials, we inform you if our approximations could change.
We understand the importance of privacy for your business and your customers. We respect the confidentiality of your data, and we will never pass on your information to third parties.
