In a recent movie theater closure announcement post, I had mentioned wanting to host some ONTD Movie Nights where we could get together virtually and live post through a movie viewing. Netflix Party could make that even easier, with a live chat box built in-screen.
I propose weekly movie viewings & we can easily share hosting duties, so that other time zones get a fair chance. I also realize some countries' Netflix have a different movie selection. We already have FFA Friday & Saturday posts, but we can always do it on the weekends if that's better for more people.
1) Using Chrome Browser, Click here & click on the "Install Netflix Party" button. Once you are redirected to the Chrome Web Store, click "Add to Chrome" to finish installing Netflix Party.
2) On movie night, the host ONTDer will open a video in Netflix to watch and start playing the video.
3) To create a party, the host will click on the red "NP" icon located next to the address bar. Then click "Start Party" to get the party started, and share the party URL in an ONTD post to invite everyone to join!
4) To join a party click on the party URL, which will redirect to Netflix's website. You must have your own Neflix account log-in. Then click on the "NP" button next to the address bar, and you should automatically join the party.
The host ONTDer will have full control of playback, and all attendees can chat in the sidebar (and select their icon/username, so we can continue practicing our safe internet social distancing we've already been doing here!)
Below is a poll for users to vote for our first movie night selection & date/time. I have tried to select a few films across several genres. Lastly, anyone unable to download the extension or who doesn't have Netflix is more than welcome to join in the ONTD comments under the link sharing post and find a viewing of the movie by any
