Netflix Party

Has anyone brought up the Netflix party chrome add on to the BM Crew? It would be cool to all livewatch a show together and interact in chat. We wouldn’t be able to see them but it might be fun to watch with a big group.

PLEASE HELP ME IM GOING STIR CRAZY AND I HAVE A 2.5 YEAR OLD

    Heyoooo us too - passing toddler time suuuuucks right now!  We love him, but still..... 

    Not beating ourselves up for relying on Sesame St and Mr Rogers more than normal. We need it more than him.  Hang in there!

    This Tiger King documentary is wild (no pun intended)!
    Isn't it supposed to sync up to wherever you as the host are in the video, though?

    Side note:  Bret Michaels took quite the redneck turn!
    Side note #2:  Yeah, none of these guys look shifty *at all*.

    what sucks is it looks like if you want to switch videos the party closes and you have to create a whole new link. i dont think you can just follow the host if they change videosz.

    OH!  Okay.  So after someone clicks the link to join the party, they have to click the red NP at the top right of the browser window and that will take them to the party, with the chat area also.  I'm there now :)

    Hey, glad to see you all in here figuring out the Netflix Party! We're going to be doing some testing on this tomorrow, and if all goes well then we're going to try to do a livewatch with everyone next week!

    One thing I found last night is that in the chat, it doesn’t give you an option to have your user name. You only get an icon.  So you kind of have to announce who you are so that people know.

    Wait, how did you get a username in the Netflix Party chat?  All I had was an icon last night when I was testing it with Hatorian.

    Edit:  Wait...  *sigh* :sweat_smile:

    OMG had no idea season 3 is about to drop! I hope they won’t make us wait for it here in Europe! Now’s not the time to be geoblocking and shite...
