Best Ways to Host A Remote Watch Night

Remember the Blockbuster days where you had to wait for everyone in your circle to rent their copies of Shrek or Twilight or Sex and the City – or, worse yet, you had to get everyone in the same place and wait to watch a movie together? Luckily for you, remote watch nights are possible now, thanks to online streaming platforms like Netflix. 

Are you wondering the best way to host a remote watch night? Here are nine ways to have a Netflix party – take your pick! 

Teleparty: The app formerly known as Netflix Party 

Quite literally known as the original Netflix party in the past, Teleparty is a Chrome extension that lets you watch all Netflix titles with your friends and family. 

All you need to do is install the Chrome extension following the steps given above, then make your way to Netflix and click on the extension. In just a few seconds, your room will be generated, and then you can send the link for everyone to join. The best part about Teleparty is that not only can you choose your own adorable avatars, but you can also get on a group chat with your friends. 

As long as Netflix is available in your country, Teleparty can be accessed, as well. Just make sure that whatever you plan on watching is available for everyone in the watch party, too. 

Kast: Experience the Vast Realm of Tubi 

Regardless of whether you have a free or premium Kast account, you can enjoy Netflix with your friends or family on it – whenever you want, wherever you want! Not only does Kast support almost all of the major online streaming services, including Netflix, YouTube, Tubi, etc., but you can use it on whichever device you have.

 So, launch it on your web browser, download the desktop application on your Windows desktop PC or your MacBook, or just use the Android and iOS mobile versions of the app – whatever rocks your boat. 

You can either keep your parties “Private” for just your close friends and family to join, or you can make them “Public” so that you can watch your title with anyone else who wants to watch it. 

Kast is free to download, but if you’re a fanatic for improved video quality, need a much bigger selection of emojis to express yourself, and hate ads like we do, we’d recommend upgrading to a premium version of the Kast app. 

Scener: Be the host your wish to see in the world

You can now invite up to ten friends to watch Netflix at the same time you are with Scener, even if you live hundreds or thousands of miles apart. Scener is a new feature that lets up to ten people simultaneously watch shows and movies from the same screen, thanks to an integrated chat tool that you can use in real-time to talk about the title with your friends. 

Joining a Scener watch party is quite easy and requires no plugins. All you have to do is download the Scener app from the Chrome Web Store, the Apple App Store, or Roku, depending on what device and OS you have.

 Sadly, not all Netflix accounts can start a Scener watch party; only the primary Netflix profile on an account will work. To let your friends watch on your account, just make sure that you are creating the watch party with the main profile and not any other profiles on the account. 

At the moment, you can only add nine more people to a watch party, but here’s hoping this number increases soon for all of us who are social butterflies. Another drawback of Scener is that when you need to pause or play the title for any reason, you will have to ask the room leader who has started the watch party. No more impromptu bathroom or snack breaks for you unless the room leader lets you. 

Watch2Gether: For the audio inclined 

Those of you who are used to watching YouTube videos with your friends probably know about Watch2Gether already. 

At the moment, you cannot watch Netflix directly on Watch2Gether the way you can on other extensions, but a new beta W2gSync feature is a lifesaver. All you have to do is copy and paste your Netflix title’s URL directly into the window after creating a private room. Your screen is shared with everyone you have added to the room when it’s played. However, as the creator of the watch party, only you will be able to play and pause the video. 

Head over to the Chrome Web Store now and download the official Watch2Gether Chrome browser extension and have fun Netflix and chilling with your friends!

TwoSeven: Filling out the Teleparty gaps

With TwoSeven’s group watch feature, you can send the invite link of a Netflix title to your friends and family. Once everyone accepts your invite, you can all automatically enter a virtual watch party and start your shenanigans! 

You don’t all need to have your own account, but it is necessary that one person starts the watch party with their Netflix account and sends out the invitation link. You will be able to sync up instantly and play, pause, or resume all together on TwoSeven, so you don’t have to worry about being out of sync or even losing your spot. 

The best part about TwoSeven is that it lets you see your friends’ webcams in real-time as the Netflix title plays. So, instead of having to type and send out your reactions to exciting scenes, you can just react the way you normally would, and everyone gets to see it! Like most of the group watch options, GroupWatch has a super friendly vibe and is more about enjoying the movie together instead of discussing it. 

Metastream: For a shared queue experience 

Instead of having to download an application on your device to host a Netflix watch party for your friends, Metastream lets you stream titles directly from your web browser. 

What makes Metastream special is that not only does it let you chat with your friends in a side chatbox, but it also lets you queue videos so that your flow is not interrupted and you don’t have to search for videos in the middle. All you need to do is download and install the Metastream browser extension on Chrome or Firefox, generate a watch party link, and send it out.
