Netflix Remote


Controlling Netflix via your normal remote control has many disadvantages. Searching for series or movies is quite difficult, because your Samsung remote control does not have a keyboard. Scrolling around with the remote arrows takes so much time. The same applies if you need to enter your Netflix of WiFi password. And, what do you do if you lose your remote control again? Fortunately, you can get rid of this annoying problem for free. That’s right… A solution without any costs! You just need one app.

Netflix has been around since 1997 but it wasn’t until 2007 that it became widely used. Why did it take so long for it to catch on?

Netflix is a streaming video service that allows subscribers to watch movies and TV shows online. It was founded in 1997 by Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph who wanted to create a better way to watch television. Netflix’s success comes down to its ability to provide a unique experience that no other company could match. This is because it offers something that no other streaming service does – instant access to thousands of movies and TV episodes.

Because DVD is not a hundred-year format, people wonder what will Netflix’s second act be.

On Tuesday, Mr. Hastings will begin to answer that question. Netflix is introducing a service to deliver movies and television shows directly to users’ PCs, not as downloads but as streaming video, which is not retained in computer memory. The service, which is free to Netflix subscribers, is meant to give the company a toehold in the embryonic world of Internet movie distribution.

Netflix has been around for more than 25 years now but there’s always something new to watch. How do you find out what’s coming next? Netflix has become such a big part of our lives that it’s hard to imagine life without it. However, if you want to keep up with the latest movies and TV shows, then you need to know where to look.

In 2011, Netflix remote button was introduced in America. Four years later, in 2015, the familiar red Netflix button was also added to European remotes. Most television remotes have a Netflix button. This allows the streaming service to be switched on and off. However, further functionalities are very limited.

A common complaint is that people do not like browsing Netflix with a regular remote control. After all, it offers no mouse control or keyboard. It seems that many TV manufacturers – such as Samsung – have not developed the remote control for streaming services.

How Many Subscribers Does Netflix Have?

Netflix is one of the largest streaming services in the world. At the end of 2021, the company had approximately 221.8 million subscribers worldwide.

The WiFi control prevents malfunctions or interruptions. Normal remote controls work with an infrared signal. The biggest disadvantage of an infrared signal is that nothing should stand between the TV and remote control. Nowadays, sound bars often prevent people from using the remote control. After all, it blocks the signal. The ControlMeister app with built-in Netflix remote puts an end to this. Convenience and comfort is what the application delivers.



This app is perfect. I’ve been looking for an app like this for absolutely ages. It’s got everything from apps on the Tv, and I can mess around with my brother without him even noticing 😂 😂 Would highly recommended it!

Actually works!

I was dubious, as most remotes don’t work. This one works a treat on my iPhone 11. It does have adds when switching remotes on the app but I can live with that.

This allows you to easily control the cursor on your TV screen. Quite handy if you want to visit another website, for example. Or, if you want to switch from movies to series within Netflix. And mouse control is of course something that most normal remote controls do not have. But ControlMeister does!

Currently, ControlMeister’s Netflix remote is exclusively for iOS users. It doesn’t matter which iPhone or iPad you have. This remote app works on all versions. Android users cannot use ControlMeister (yet).

2 | WiFi

Our remote app communicates with your Samsung Smart TV via the WiFi network. This reliable connection ensures that you can operate your television and Netflix effortlessly and quickly. Our developers have specifically chosen not to support 4G, as this connection is not reliable to ensure quality. WiFi is much more stable than a connection via a mobile network.
