Let's Have ANOTHER Netflix Party, ONTD!

Last week, several ONTDers & I gathered together to watch National Treasure together using the Chrome extension Netflix Party, that allows users to share a movie watching experience with a built-in chat feature together....from a safe social distance.

Despite a few technical glitches (keep your fingers off the spacebar!), I think it was a great success & hope to plan weekly movie viewings (small print: 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).



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. If selected, the host will have full playback controls (YMMV).
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.

Below is a poll to vote for our second week's movie night selection & date/time. I have tried to select a few films across several genres. 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 legal means necessary.
