Netflix offers free documentaries on YouTube

For educational purposes, Netflix has decided to provide some flagship documentaries during containment. The surprising choice is that the SVOD service is placed on YouTube instead of creating special areas on its website.

In the United States, Netflix has established partnerships with certain schools. The streaming service allows them to access certain content that is considered to be educational in order to watch it with students. Problem, the school is closed and they cannot access it.

As a result, the SVOD service decided to release nine documentaries (including the excellent Our Planet) on its US YouTube channel and provide subtitles in multiple languages. Netflix invites teachers to recommend them to students for discussion through video conferencing. Of course, everyone can use it.

Wonderful choice for YouTube

Of course, some people may wonder why Netflix chose YouTube over its own platform to make this gift. Is this a way to increase visibility by using Google’s suggestions? Is this a technical limitation? Or just shut out people without a Netflix account? In any case, in addition to these YouTube videos, Netflix also provides teachers with documentation to help them prepare for the course.

In addition to “Notre Dame” (providing incredible images of nature), there are documentaries “Baby”, “Explanation” and “Thirteen”. Whether you are a student or limited to research content, you should treat yourself well.

Netflix can now lock your mobile screen

The Netflix mobile app now allows you to lock the screen during playback to prevent unnecessary operations.

Netlix subscribers who are used to watching their favorite TV series from a smartphone screen will be happy. The platform is deploying its application updates to Android to integrate a very useful new feature.

Now, while reading the program, users can lock their screens. This new feature takes place directly next to the button next to the lower navigation bar, which allows you to view episodes, change the language or go to the next episode.

When activated, the screen lock deletes all other control buttons to prevent accidental presses, such as pausing or accidentally starting the next episode. Then press the lock button twice to return to the normal display of the Netflix control.
