The streaming industry is growing more and more and it is expected that for the next few years it will be one of the audiovisual sectors with the highest value in the digital world. According to PWC, a company specialized in auditing, tax and consulting services, the subscription of videos on demand (SOVD) could show a rate of return on your investment of 10.6% per year, from this year until 2025; This, translated into money figures, means that the industry could be worth at least $ 81.3 billion in the next four years.
Of course, talking about this world would not be possible without mentioning Netflix, the streaming giant that according to PWC, in 2019 invested more than 15 billion dollars in own productions, which makes it the most important platform in this digital category.
Thinking about this, and in order that all people can fully enjoy Netflix on their computers, Infobae brings a series of tricks to experience the contents of this company in a different way with the help of Google Chrome extensions.
If you have ever come home so tired and you just want to grab your computer, lie down and watch a series or movie on Netflix, you will understand that there is a problem: your head is not complemented by the sense of the PC screen. For this reason, a group of developers decided to create Netflix Lip, an extension with which you can rotate your viewing window without having to do ‘twists’ with the computer screen. So you can enjoy your content in the position you want.
Many times searching for some content on Netflix can be a bit of a difficult task, taking into account the number of productions that this platform has. However, what many do not know is that this company tends to create categories on very specific topics such as “Comedy movies from the 80s” or “movies inspired by horror books”. In order to take advantage of this level of detail and find what you really want to see, there is ‘Netflix Hidden Categories’, a tool with which you can navigate within the Netflix service with the help of these hyperspecific categories.
If you are one of the people who likes to watch Netflix content in company, in order to discuss what happens in a movie or series, but your “special” being is not by your side, Teleparty is the solution. With this extension you can create rooms on the main streaming platforms (Netflix, Hulu, HBO and Disney +). You just have to enter this tool in Chrome, create a ‘party’ and share the link with the people with whom you want to see content in real time.
To learn a new language there is no better way than to have the ear almost all the time at the same time. Active listening is one of the most effective strategies, and one of the ways to practice it is through native movies or series in that language. Nevertheless, for those who are just starting out in this new learning, it is always good to have a subtitle option and Language Reactor is the ideal choice. With the help of this extension, the viewer will be able to see different subtitles (the native one and the one that is learning), in addition to having a pop-up dictionary to Netflix that translates word by word while the movie or series plays.
Everyone knows that Netflix original productions are the most successful and of the best quality that exist today, however, there are times when people want to see new content within this application, but that is foreign to their brand. For this it was created No Netflix Originals, an option that will “democratize” the way the platform will display content, preventing it from promoting its own content over other productions. The best thing about this is that it works both at startup and in the so-called “recommended queues”.
