How will I use Netflix
After completed the creation of your account, accessed Netflix and choose the profile with which you want to use the service and enjoy the show: sefficially inside the world of Netflix!
Now before your eyes there should be an immense expanse of related posters movies, TV series, documentaries and cartoons It will visualize quickly at zero cost. Yes it is the most dressed up his Netflix titles, the most interesting content of the moment and movies/TV series you might like (based on your previous viewings).
The post-son contention is either directly enclosed, using the search bar at the top right (where you can type in movie, series or cartoon titles, actor names or movie genres), or browsed according to their respective categories.
To browse the contents according to their category, position the course of the mouse on the Shop by Department item located at the top right and select one of the items presented in the menu that if you press: TV Series, Action, Comedy, Horror, documentaries etc.. Clicking instead on the item Kids that is always in the upper left corner you can activate the "safe" mode of Netflix that allows only the display of content suitable for children.

In the case of series, clicking on the arrow also shows a drop-down menu for selecting episodes and seasons.
The Netflix player is very intuitive: in the center is the scroll bar to quickly move from one point to another of the video; on the left the pulses to control playback (play / pause and volume adjustment), while standing out, the sound to jump to the next episode, browse all the episodes given a series, select the language audio and subtitles and turn on or off the full screen display mode.
Like any self-respecting streaming service, Netflix remembers the point at which you interrupt the playback of each video and synchronizes the user's library with its tutti and device. It is not possible to download offline content directly from the browser. To take advantage of this possibility from your computer, you have to use Windows 10 and download the official Netflix app, through which it is possible to save all the contents of the service and download those that are made available for download, including Netflix originals and many movies.
If you want, you can also I will create a watch-list with the content of the future.

How Netflix works your smartphone and tablet
Regarding the use of Netflix on the move, not with the application of the explain: I access the app on your smartphone / tablet, I access the service with your account and you have to enjoy the show. The only solution is strict and supported Android device through root procedure and/or with unlocked boot loader.
Since version 5.0, Netflix for Android has only supported the device through root and/or with the boot loader unlocked (to ensure proper functionality of the Widevine DRM that Netflix uses to manage the control of its content). All this, translated into simple words, means that there is an Android device "unlocked", you will no longer find Netflix within the Play Store but you will have to download it "manually" from an external source.
Going into more detail, what you should do is turn on unknown source support on the Settings> Android Security menu, download the Netflix APK package from trusted sites (such as APKMirror) and install the app via the latter. Be warned, though: Netflix has made it known that in the future the app may stop working altogether on rooted Android devices, even if installed via APK.
Having said that, I'll turn to the Android version of the app. If you don't have a Netflix account and wish to create one directly from your smartphone or tablet, click on the Try it button on the app's home screen, choose which plan to activate from Basic, Standard and Premium and proceed with registration by indicating your screen. The procedure that will follow is practically identical to the one that is illustrated in the previous PC.
The application's interface is also practically identical to that of the desktop version of Netflix: on the home screen you'll find the list of the title of interest of the moment, which is listed in it and which is listed in the previous version. By pressing the ≡ button you can instead access the Netflix menu with the complete list of movie generics, TV series and app settings. By selecting your name at the top of the menu, you can switch users, while tapping on the Account item will allow you to adjust your account settings (subscription, password and so on).
By selecting the voice App settings, as it appears above, you can adjust the setting related to the bandwidth used for playing streaming content.
Possible Android smartphone with version is instead 5.0 Lollipop, you might mistake in an error message, after downloading the app from the Play Store. If you see the message "This version of the Netflix app is not compatible with your device" when you launch the app, it means that I will download and install a previous version of the Netflix app.
In order to do this correctly, you need to have already enabled the ability to download and install apps of unknown origin (procedure that I indicated in the previous lines). Once you've done that, uninstall the previously installed Netflix app after which, via your device's browser, connect to this Netflix webpage and click on the Click here to download Netflix app link you find in the middle of the screen (or press directly here, if you don't find the wording in question).
On the new screen that appears you will automatically see that little Netflix APK file download (Netflix-xxx-release). I watched the automatic download last and eventually launched the file by pressing your of it and proceeded with the necessary operation to install an APK package, as shown in the previous lines.
Download offline content
Using Netflix gives a smartphone, tablet or PC equipped with Windows 10 if acquires the ability to download content locally and watch it offline. Such functionality is available your Android, iPhone, iPad and, as just mentioned, on PCs animated by Windows 10. It doesn't require any special subscriptions and there is no expiration date for the content (except leaving your device disconnected from Netflix for more than 30 days). The only downside is that not all movies, series and documentaries in the Netflix catalog are currently available for download.
That said, if you want to download to any Netflix content all you have to do is select it, click on the arrow located under its tab (or next to the title of an episode, in the case of series) and watch the download end.
Next, click on the ≡ button placed at the top left corner, choose the My downloads item from the bar to compare the list and select the offline save content. From the same screen you can also check the progress of the current download.
It has been published about the Netflix download feature, its imposition and limitations, read my tutorial on how to watch Netflix offline. It's visually invented for the full list of content available for offline viewing, click the ≡ button from the Netflix app and select the Available for Download item from the bar that appears on the side.
Netflix updates its catalog constantly. Every week movies, documentaries, cartoons and TV series of all kinds are added (sometimes with complete seasons, others with a single episode per week) and it is therefore essential to stay updated on the latest news published by the service.
In order not to miss the updates of Netflix, follow the social profile of the service on Facebook and Twitter and control the menu of notifications (the icon of bluebell that you find in the upper right corner of the main screen of the service), where you will be notified of the news related to the titles you have seen and / or that you have en list (but not only).
Moreover, to have a complete panorama of the latest novelties add to the catalog of Netflix, you can go to the Shop by Department menu (or in the lateral menu of the app for smartphones and tablets) of the service and select the item New arrivals give the box that opens.
Decidedly interesting as well as in the social account of the third party, which is the first news of the film on the TV series on Netflix. Among these I'd like to point out the Netflix News bot for Telegram that invites automatic updates on new shows added to the service catalog.
