How Do I Check for New Releases on Netflix?

Shares & Saves

Netflix has an extensive library of titles to stream, from drama to sci-fi and horror to documentaries, and adds new content daily. The easiest way to check for new releases on Netflix is to scroll down to the “New Releases” section on your Netflix homepage which displays the latest movies, TV shows and documentaries. You can also type “New Releases” or “Recently Added” into the search box. Additionally, third party websites such as Facebook, Twitter, Best Movies on Netflix and Whats on Netflix? serve as news sources for the latest Netflix releases. Netflix offers new releases on DVD, as well.

Searching on Netflix

  • The most convenient way to see new releases is to scroll down to your “New Releases” tab which displays the current releases available for streaming. Netflix might also suggest new releases based on your past viewing history. Occasionally, if you search for movies in the search box, a page alerts you that the movie is not available for streaming. If so, Netflix gives you the option to try the DVD rental service if the title is available in its library.

Third Party Websites

  • Another source for finding the latest Netflix releases is through fan sites. Best Movies on Netflix posts news on the latest Netflix movies on the website. Whats on Netflix? provides lists of all new content, whether TV shows, movies or documentaries. You can follow Netflix on your Twitter account and receive tweets about Netflix news and new content. In addition, your Facebook account can be linked with Netflix if you want to share your viewing activity.

Netflix on DVD

  • Netflix got its start delivering DVDs in a red envelope through the mail. While the company has put more emphasis on its streaming services, many movies still aren’t available for streaming. In fact, some new releases can be obtained exclusively on DVD. The Netflix DVD website frequently updates this list.
