Hack your way to near-unlimited Netflix Watch Now Nirvana

Netflix Watch NowSo you know how Netflix is rolling out a service that lets you download some of the movies in your queue? And you know how the service only lets you watch a limited number of movies per month? Yeah, apparently it's not that hard to cheat the system.

Engadget reports that some users have essentially rolled back the clock to make Netflix think they've only spent a few minutes watching a film, when in fact they've spent two hours. So while an $18/month Netflix subscription is supposed to net you 18 hours of play time (in addition to DVD rentals), you can pretty much get unlimited views. It's probably only a matter of time before Netflix "fixes" this glitch.

Here's how it works:
  1. Wait for the movie to finish downloading, and then disconnect your network adapter.
  2. Clear your browser cache and cookies.
  3. Reconnect your network adapter after you've finished watching the movie.
  4. Netflix will subtract a few minutes from your clock, allowing you to watch dozens of additional movies this month.
