So a bunch of us are stuck inside, unable to go out or hangout with people. That's lame. Instead of sitting around moping all day or "working from home" whatever that means, let's watch some shit on Netflix together! Please note, this only works on chrome on a desktop or laptop. Sorry tablet users.

Step One: Download the "Netflix Party" chrome extension
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/netflix-party/oocalimimngaihdkbihfgmpkcpnmlaoa?hl=en

Step Two: Open up Netflix and choose a thing to watch. Keep in mind some Netflix content is region locked so not everyone will be able to watch it.

Step Three: Start watching the thing! Once it's started, click the Netflix Party icon in your Chrome toolbar and click "Start the Party"

Step Four: Copy the link that pops up and post that link here in this thread! Start watching right away so folks can drop in whenever they like, or set a time when you can all meet and start watching together.

The extension syncs playback up for everyone and adds a little chat window where you can talk about whatever you're watching. IT'S FUN. I haven't used it much so I'm not sure if the party keeps running after the host has left or whatever, I would that that as long as one person is watching it'll keep it going.

As a test, here is some supremely relaxing and wholesome content called Hyori's Bed and Breakfast in which a former Korean pop star turns her little hippy house into a B&B for 2 weeks and invites strangers to come stay. It is amazing and it makes my brain relax

    My friend lives in Mexico and we found that there's not much similarities between what is offered here and there. Sucks....
    All the Netflix produced content works just fine though! We tested out the Pokemon Meetwo movie and ended up sticking with that.
    We had fun! :biggrin:

    I was gonna mention Netflix produced content is usually available worldwide.

    This is a great opportunity to watch Terrace House, people!

    I was gonna make this thread when I heard about Netflix Party, but haven't actually had time to set up a specific viewing so was putting it off. So thanks for making it, hopefully I can join for something this weekend!
