For-pay on-demand streaming media and video service
Watch your favorite films and television shows right on your computer with the newest Netflix app download.
Netflix is one of the most popular streaming services in the world today. Though the company charges a monthly fee, you can watch as many programs as you want each month. Netflix has a full library that includes millions of television shows and movies. Some TV shows become available before the new season starts, which will help you get caught up on those shows. You'll also have the chance to watch shows that aired on less popular networks and shows or films you never heard of before.
The latest version of the app comes with a newly designed interface that is both stylish and functional. It shows you the last item that you watched, and if you didn't finish, it will let you pick up right where you left off. It shows you the last three items you watched and displays your queue too. You might notice that you do not have access to your full queue though. The Netflix app limits your queue to the most recent items added.
If you're the type of person who loves browsing for shows and films, you'll like this app. With one swipe, you can check out the programs most recently added to the site, see the most popular videos others watched, and see what Netflix recommends for you. It also lets you browse by genre. Swipe right and left to see horror movies, documentaries, romantic comedies, and other genres.
As long as you remain logged into your account, Netflix will keep track of your most recently watched items. You can then use a Netflix app on any other device and pick up where you stopped watching. The app also records your progress when you shut down the app. This comes in handy in situations where you lose your internet signal or accidentally close the app. Netflix will instantly stop the show or film you watched and let you start at the exact moment that you stopped watching later.
The upgraded Netflix app also lets you multitask with newer Windows operating systems. Watch Netflix in a separate window as you edit documents and do other tasks with your computer.
