Or, if you're not into all that "secret menu" stuff, you can just make sure your settings and internet are optimized for the best streaming possible.
Watch Netflix at weird times for better video quality
Another way to improve your video quality is streaming during off-peak hours (like early in the morning, late at night, etc.), according to a Digital Trends report.

If you've unwittingly shared your Netflix password with half your social circle and all of your former flames, their terrible taste and viewing habits may be totally screwing up your algorithm. If you want, you can ban them all from piggy-backing on your subscription in one fell swoop by going to My Account > Sign out of all devices.
Binge-watch without judgment
