If you’re working with a limited amount of data on your phone or tablet data plan, you can adjust the quality of your streaming.

Log into Netflix on your mobile or desktop browser, go to: Your Account > Playback Settings > Manage video quality, and set it to the lowest streaming quality (480p).

2. Unblock movies while abroad

Free apps like “Hola” can unblock content so that it can be watched anywhere in the world.

These keyboard shortcuts work for Netflix:

F = full screen

Shift + Left Arrow = rewind, Shift + Right Arrow = fast-forward

M = mute

Down arrow = volume down

Enter = play/pause

Page Up = play

Page down = pause

ESC = exit full screen


4. YouTube movies

Find full streaming movies that aren’t on Netflix, on YouTube.
