Thanks to the availability on a wide range of devices and an ever-growing catalog of content, Netflix has become one of the go-to entertainment solutions for those without cable. So, having just told you about 10 tools that will totally rock the way you use Netflix, what’s next? Making sure your Netflix set up is the best it can be, naturally.

Today on Cord Cutters, Janko walks us through five ways to optimize your use of the streaming media service, including how to discover what content is available in HD and how to make sure your Internet connection is at its best.

Watching Cord Cutters has just gotten easier, by the way: We’ve created an RSS feed you can follow to get direct access to new episodes.

And we’re also planning our first Cord Cutters meetup in San Francisco — if you’re in the area and want to hang out with the NewTeeVee team, as well as other locals who are going cable-free, then save the date of Jan. 25th!

As always, we want to hear from cord cutters about why they’ve dropped their cable subscriptions and how they’re adjusting — so reach out on Twitter or via email with your stories and questions about cord cutting!

  1. Is an RSS feed coming soon? As I live in the country & I can not stream almost nothing so I DL the rss feeds at night & during the day when I am gone for me when I get home – this is a great site & video series. But there is no way for me to watch it at home, even if I let it buffer your built in player only buffers for 15 seconds.
    Thanks for the great show & remember the RSS feed for “the rest of us”
