Popular on-demand video streaming platform, Netflix, recently released its Q1 2020 reports, and honestly, the numbers are encouraging.
Netflix is one of the few businesses that has benefited and is still benefiting from the COVID-19 pandemic-induced lockdown. Staying at home means a lot of people have more time on their hands for entertainment (a plus for on-demand video streaming platforms like Netflix).
In Q1 2020, Netflix reported that it added nearly 16 million subscribers, more than twice what experts predicted, and its global paid memberships rose to nearly 183 million. All these have been attributed to COVID-19.
So, as you continue to stay at home and binge-watch on Netflix, it only makes sense that we continue to provide you with tips to better your Netflix viewing experience.
With that said, if you watch Netflix using your web browser (Chrome) on your computer, here are some of the best Netflix Chrome extensions to improve your viewing experience.
