Sony Xperia 1 III and 10 II are now certified for Netflix HD and HDR10 streaming

Mobile phones may seem cramped for watching full-length movies, but they’re still (very) popular among Netflix users, as is evident from its billion-plus Play Store downloads. That’s why the streaming giant keeps an up-to-date list of devices that can offer you the best streaming experience for its app. It isn’t at all surprising that the new OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro are now also compatible with Netflix's streaming standards, along with a bunch of other phones from Oppo and Sharp.

Let Netflix choose what you watch tonight

Let Netflix choose what you watch tonight

Streaming services have made it easy to watch almost any movie or show you can think of with just a click of a button. Unfortunately, channel surfing has been a casualty of the switch from cable TV to Netflix or Hulu. Gone are the halcyon days of watching The Shawshank Redemption on TNT just because it's on. Stumbling on a cult classic or a forgotten hit on weekend afternoons has been left in the past, but Netflix is making an effort to modernize the experience with its new "Play Something" button.

Netflix and Chromecast for Google TV are starting to patch up their differences

Google’s new Chromecast dongle has had its fair share of issues, but none has been as vexing as Netflix refusing to play nicely with the device — which, ironically, has a dedicated Netflix button on the remote. More recently, things have started to change as Netflix is back to integrating well with Google TV’s core functions, just as it did earlier — but there are some parts that aren’t back on track just yet.

A Netflix crackdown on borrowed logins could be coming

A Netflix crackdown on borrowed logins could be coming

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings has famously proclaimed that he doesn't mind his customers sharing their accounts with other people — which goes against Section 4.2 of the streaming service's own terms of use — because those other people tend to purchase their own subscription at some point. But it seems that the era of borrowed logins might soon come to an end.

Netflix is so confident in its recommendations that it can now download them automatically

Netflix introduced its Smart Downloads feature three years ago, which automatically downloads the next episodes of a show you're watching while on Wi-Fi, for easier viewing away from reliable internet connections (or on capped mobile data plans).

It's 2021, and Netflix still doesn't offer HD downloads on Chromebooks

It's 2021, and Netflix still doesn't offer HD downloads on Chromebooks

When I bought my first Chromebook back in 2020, I imagined a bright future. I specifically wanted a convertible so I could replace my aging third-gen iPad (yes, the one from 2012). And due to Android app support, I thought I would be able to use it as my new media consumption machine. Unfortunately, things turned out to be more complicated, particularly when it comes to video streaming and downloading, and I wish I knew what I was getting myself into beforehand. To spare you the same disappointment, here's what's going on.
