As long time users know, while the service is great, but finding something to watch may not be. A new website, Flixable.com, is looking to solve that by being a very simple and straight-forward Netflix search engine.
When you open the site on your computer, tablet, or smartphone, you’re greeted with the latest additions to Netflix (sorted by newest to oldest), with an easy-to-read ratings tab on the photos.
It’s even separated by movies and TV shows, with controls to help you narrow down your choices quickly. Click on the title you want, and it’ll take you to the streaming page.
Other tabs include “Popular Titles”, “Netflix Originals” and “Leaving”. That last one is important to many, because it helps you catch something you’ve been meaning to watch before it’s not longer available, information that’s not easy to find on Netflix.com.
What if you still can’t find anything to watch? Or what you want to watch isn’t showing up on Netflix?
Bookmark JustWatch.com to search all the popular streaming services for whatever title you’re looking for and find all the streaming, rental, and purchasing options available to you.
