Think you know every Netflix hack out there? Think again. The streaming service has recently raised their rates and while it's still a great deal, it's your job to get the most out of it. So, we're Netflix and spilling the beans on ways to maximize your subscription with minimal effort. 

1. What to Watch 

Do you feel like you've watched every single possible movie on Netflix? By visiting this list of all of Netflix's shows and movies, you'll discover a wide array niche categories! Some of the most popular include anime, deep-sea horror films, camp films, social issue, dramas and so much more. Just open this site in another tab or window while you're signed in, and dive in! 

2. Netflix Roulette 

If you're in an indecisive mood and all the categories make your head spin, take a gamble with the wheel. The website has a roulette feature that'll pick a movie for you. You can narrow your selections by genre, type and even IMDB score. 

3. View Activity and Clear History 

Did you know that Netflix has a big brother feature? It tracks all of your viewing activity, including the location and the device it's being watched on. So, if it's your weasel kid brother, you'll know it. On the other hand, if YOU'RE the weasel, you can delete all of your activity. 

All you have to do is log on to Netflix, head to "Your Account," and you'll find the option "Viewing Activity" at the bottom of that menu. That's it! From there, you can make any changes to your streaming history. 

4. Buffer Better 

Finally, don't let slow buffering slow you down! You can control the streaming quality with just a couple of clicks. All you have to do is hit Control + Shift + Option + S. Then a white box will appear, and you'll have all different options for bit rate. Your videos will stream quicker, but the quality might be grainer. What's a little quality for a lot more speed, right?

More than just hacks, these are helpful tips to know to make the most of your Netflix watching experience. And why not set yourself apart from the average Netflix watcher to a binge-watching pro!
