Netflix is always adding more — new releases, TV shows, hidden gems, classic movies. Plus, Netflix Originals like “Lilyhammer” and “House of Cards”. Here are some ways to stay on top of the latest and greatest.
If you’ve been a Netflix member for more than a month, you’ll see a Recently Added row that has shows and movies added to Netflix in the previous 30 days. The New Releases row on Netflix shows you the titles that were first released, either in the movie theatre or on TV, in the past year and a half.
You can also follow Netflix on Facebook or Twitter, where they regularly feature new Netflix TV shows and movies. If there’s a new season of a TV show you’ve been watching, you can opt to receive an email notification about it.
While Netflix continuously adds titles to their collection, the rights to stream particular titles also expire. When you’re browsing Netflix, you will see a notification if a show’s scheduled to go offline, so you have the chance to enjoy it before it becomes unavailable.

On your Netflix homepage, you will find various category lists of TV shows and movies. Depending on the platform you are using to access Netflix, these lists will vary.

You can also opt in to Netflix email notifications, under your account settings. Scroll down to the My Profile section under the settings, select Communication settings and activate the Now on Netflix option.
