How to Join an LTN Arcade Netflix Party

In order to join us for our LTN Arcade movie screenings, you need four things:

  1. a desktop or laptop computer (this will not work on a tablet or phone),
  2. a US-region Netflix account (or Netflix account that’s in a region that also has the specific show or movie we’re going to watch),
  3. the Google Chrome web browser, and
  4. the free Netflix Party extension. Netflix Party lets you watch Netflix shows and movies with your friends by synchronizing video playback and adding group chat.

If you’re already familiar with Netflix Party, all you need is the link to the party, which you’ll find on the event registration page. Surf over to the LTN Arcade schedule and click on the event for the movie/show screening you want to join.

If you’ve never used Netflix Party, here is how to get yourself set up to join us!

Step 1: Use Google Chrome

Open Google Chrome Web Browser (on your desktop/laptop – will NOT work on your phone or tablet).
If you don’t have Google Chrome, you can download it here for your PC/Mac. This will not work using any other web browser.

Step 2: Go to the Netflix Party Website

Go to www.netflixparty.com and click on the Install Netflix Party button in the top right corner of the screen:

Step 3: Download the Extension

Install Netflix Party extension in Chrome Web Store:

Step 4: Click the Invite

Click on the invite link your host provided you for whatever movie you’re watching, but make sure you do Step 5 as well, or you won’t be in the actual Movie Party with everyone else—you’ll just be watching the movie on your own. The invite link to the viewing will be posted on Discord, in the LTN Facebook community, and emailed to registered attendees shortly before the viewing is scheduled to start.

Step 5: Join the Party

After clicking on the link in Step 4, click on the red NP icon in the top right corner of your screen to join the Movie Party:

That’s it! Netflix Party will give you a chat bar on the side of the screen that you can use to talk to other people in the party, and if the event host has opened a voice channel for the party on the LTN Discord server you can also join that. If you have any questions, send a message to the event host—they should be listed on the LTN Arcade event registration page.

(Note: If your Netflix account is not based in the US, the films we choose may not be available in your region.)
