The Netflix Hack You Never Knew You Needed
You're probably familiar with one of my favorite past times, likely because it's yours too — it's a little streaming service called "Netflix" and in it, lies the entire universe. Netflix is a perfect invention. The only downside to the subscription service is that it cannot feed you (unless we're talking about emotional fulfillment, in which case, it does quite a good job, 10 out of 10). But, that doesn't mean it can't help expedite the process of you getting your food. There's one Netflix hack everyone needs to know (it's technically an Apple TV hack that vibes rather nicely with your Netflix habit, but stay with me) which makes it easy for you and your friends — i.e. you, your couch, and that blanket that probably needs to be washed — to order food. Using nothing other than your trusty remote.
Am I literally saying you can order food through your TV, with your remote? Yes. Here's how it works in two words or less: GrubHub. Specifically, the GrubHub app. Familiar with it? The online and mobile food-ordering platform has an app on Apple TV that allows you to order food from the comfort of your own indented chair cushion. Meaning you don't actually have to physically get up for snacks/you might not have to get up ever again. (Except if you have a job [lame!] or need to pee [try to work on that]). The app that allows you to order food for delivery from all your favorite surrounding restaurants and eateries has been available on Apple TV since November of 2015, and it's the perfect solution for your food-related movie night dilemmas.
In the GrubHub App for Apple TV, specifically, the typical GrubHub experience is brought to life on a larger scale — i.e. your TV/computer screen. That means a bevy of glorious images featuring delicious looking food are available to browse through, take mental screenshots of, and salivate over. All you need is the Siri remote and an appetite for beauty. (And food, but that's a given.)
The only thing left to do at this point is download the GrubHub App by visiting the Apple TV App Store. Don't thank me. Thank the beautiful, wonderful people who made this all possible. (I don't really know who they are, but if you find them, please let me know. I have a hand written thank you card that needs to be sent.)
