The Only 15 Netflix Hacks You’ll Ever Need

5. Kill Buffering on Your Computer Buffering might as well be a four-letter word in the world of streaming video, but with this handy hack, you can stop it. If you’re watching on your computer and experience a lag, press Shift + Alt + Left Mouse Click if you’re a PC user, or Shift + Option + Click if you’re a Mac user. A diagnostic window called Stream Manager will appear, and you can manually select the buffering rate you want. Note: Wherever you click in the window is where the box pops up; higher in the screen allows for better visibility.

6. Kill Buffering on Your TV If you’re experiencing buffering issues through your Smart TV, Blu-ray Player, or game console, a different hack is required. In these instances, you need to reset your Netflix application. To do so, launch Netflix, and on your controller or remote, press this cheat code: Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, Up, Up, Up, Up. This brings up a page of your general info, along with the option to deactivate. Deactivate. Then relaunch the app. Voilà!  – Kristy Puchko,Vulture
