If you use Netflix, and more than 30 million of us do,  did you know there are some simple things you can do to make it work better?

If you get frustrated when Netflix suggest a movie you have no interest in, you can fix that with just a couple of clicks.

When the movie is finished, give it a rating. It’s not a rating for the world to see, it’s for you. 1-5 stars helps build a suggested list based on what you like. The more you rate, the better the user experience.

Plus, you can always click on the "Not Interested" button on any film's homepage and it will disappear from your recommendations page and its smartening up your future recommendations.

There’s a website called instantwatcher that quickly lists all the movies on Netflix. It also tells you which movies are going away soon. They even have a Twitter feed for you hardcore movie buffs.

Finally, Netflix is month to month. So if you decide to cancel you can. But they’ll retain your queue and ratings for 2 years.
