The good thing about Netflix? The amount of content offered. The bad thing? The amount of content offered. While handfuls of shows and movies are periodically removed from the world's favorite streaming service, BUCKET-LOADS are added every day. The problem is keeping track of all those additions and subtractions, and finding good content to watch, when you want to watch it.
Today we’re sharing our 6 favorite Android apps that any TV junkie worth their Netflix subscription should have - from accessing all the best content, to deciding what to watch, and finding out about new uploads as they happen.
Which movie should I watch next? Decisions, decisions. There are so many goodies out there, you just don't know where to start. Legit Movie is a film recommender that suggests films based on your personal taste profile.
Just tell the app which your favorite genres are and which platforms you use most (Netflix, obvs). It'll whip up a list of suggestions for you to add to your watchlist. An essential app in moments of indecision.
Ready to squeeze more international goodness out of your new Netflix account? Grab a VPN to access any content you want from wherever you are. Our current favorite is ExpressVPN ($13/month with a 30-day money-back guarantee, plus you can also use it on your computer), one of the most popular VPN clients out there.
Unlike so many low-quality VPN services out there, it actually works - and flawlessly at that. The simple UI means even newbies can make this one happen.
