Customized Family Time With NETFLIX Profiles


No Material Connection Disclosure

 

This weekend has been the very first storm of the winter. For us it was a major ice storm that covered the roads and made leaving the house not only risky but unwanted. So instead of venturing out we snuggled up together with our favorite snacks and of course movies. Thanks to Netflix we have customized our family time by creating individual profiles.

I’m going to be honest. We’ve had Netflix for at least 6 years and it wasn’t until I kept getting on TheTeenager about all his scary movies popping up on the screen that we discovered we could make individual profiles. That meant this scaredy cat movie watcher didn’t have to be startled by his favorite picks of Supernatural, The Shining and others. Initially he was the only one with a separate profile but then we decided to make one for the Kiddies and eventually the Hubby and I created our own as well.

Let me tell you making our own profiles has been amazing. Yes we spend a lot of time watching Netflix together but the other half of that time is spent with the Kiddies watching on their tables, TheTeenager watching on his laptop and the Hubby and I watching on TVs. This means I can have suggestions for all my favorite Investigative shows, Documentaries and yeah a few Chick Flicks without the Hubby feeling bombarded by them. He can watch all his thrillers, adventures and comedies.

Creating each Profile was so simple…

  • Go To Main Menu
  • Select Profiles
  • Choose Add Profile
  • Name Your Profile
  • Select Picture

TADA!!

Then Netflix will give you the option to select 3 shows that best describe your viewing styles. Based from your choices you will have a list of not only the Trending Shows and Movies but also those recommended for your specific tastes. How cool is that?!?!

*Bonus: The Kids Profiles are automatically filtered so you never have to worry about them picking something inappropriate to watch!

Thanks to the recent weather for the past 3 days I have had the chance to indulge on a Netflix Binge session to rival all others. I have watched an entire Season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Flashpoint and even a great documentary on Forensic Science. The Hubby has already made it through at least 4 Adam Sandler movies. My 5 year Buddie old loves that he can know at a glance what shows he’s finished and the last episode he stopped at while my 7 and 8 year old Girlies have watched nearly every episode of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Lego Friends while my 19 year old Teenager has been able to scare himself as much as he likes without sharing the fear at all.

    I had no idea there was a way to create different profiles!!! I am creating my own one right now!! You have no clue how tired I am of weird suggestions that don't fit at all with what like. Thanks!!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Haha! Yay!! I know you’re gonna love it…especially when you start getting suggestions based on what you’ve already watched 😀 Thanks for coming by!!

    Watching your favorite TV show and movies on Netflix is really nice. You don't have to go out of the house when you're feeling tired and lazy. Plus, you don't have to spend anything to commute or travel to the cinemas or the malls for some entertainment.

    I love Netflix, creating your own profile means that kids can't access inappropriate material and the family doesn't add rubbish to my watch list! HAHA

    • MrsTee Post author

      Exactly Anosa!! With their personal profiles, I don’t have to worry about them searching and stumbling on something they shouldn’t… Oh and yay for no rubbish…LOL 🙂

  • Stephanie

    This is a great option – I love that you can create separate profiles.. especially great if you have an age gap in kids and want to moderate what they're all watching a little more!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Yes. I have 2 teens and a 20 year old then 3 under 10 so this is definitely coming in handy….LOL Thanks so much for coming by Stephanie 😀

  • Kiwi

    I am an avid Netflixer and I didnt know you can customize them now! I do have separate profiles as I share my account with my parents so it will be fun to change up the look. Thanks for the heads up!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Girl me either…I can’t believe I was so late to this profile game but I am so happy I’m on now…LOL Have fun setting it up 😀

  • Chris

    M family always having fun when we have a Netflix Time, and I'm sure they would also love this customize idea. This is also a great way to have your family together.

  • MommyPehpot

    Watching a movie is a great bonding activity! We're still figuring out how NEtflix PH works with Globe 🙂

    • MrsTee Post author

      Yes. We love family movie nights…LOL What is Globe…? Is this something else I haven\’t discovered yet 😉 Please share.

    • MrsTee Post author

      If you love movies and watching some of your favorite shows whenever and wherever…I would definitely recommend it 🙂 Let me know what you think!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Yay…I’m so happy… The coolest part about the profiles for Kids is that it blocks any inappropriate content automatically 😀
