Are you a Mac user who loves watching Netflix? In this tutorial, we will guide you on how to watch Netflix on your Mac. Let’s dive right in and get started!

Step 1: Launch Safari

To watch Netflix on your Mac, you need to use the Safari browser. If you don’t have Safari installed, you can download it from the official Apple website.

Step 2: Visit the Netflix Website

Once you have Safari up and running, open a new tab and navigate to the Netflix website by typing in www.netflix.com in the address bar.

Step 3: Sign in or Create an Account

If you already have a Netflix account, simply click on the “Sign In” button at the top right corner of the page. Enter your email/phone number and password, then click “Sign In”. If you don’t have an account yet, click on “Join Free for a Month” to create one.

Step 4: Choose Your Profile

If there are multiple profiles associated with your Netflix account, select the profile you want to use. If not, you will be taken directly to your default profile.

Step 5: Start Watching!

Congratulations! You are now ready to start watching Netflix on your Mac. Browse through the vast library of movies and TV shows available and click on any title that catches your interest.

Tips for a Better Viewing Experience:

  • Enable Full-screen Mode: To immerse yourself in the content, press Command + Control + F or click on the full-screen icon located at the top right corner of the video player.
  • Adjust Playback Quality: By default, Netflix adjusts the playback quality based on your internet speed. However, if you want to manually change it, click on your profile icon at the top right corner, select “Account”, then go to “Playback Settings”.

    From there, you can choose the desired quality.

  • Create a Downloadable Offline Library: Netflix allows you to download certain titles for offline viewing. To do this, click on the download button located next to a title and access it later without an internet connection.

No, currently Netflix only supports streaming in 4K resolution on Windows PCs with compatible hardware and Microsoft Edge or Windows 10 app. However, you can still enjoy HD content on your Mac.
