Watching is better together.
There’s a fun new way to enjoy your favourite shows with your favourite people, wherever you are. With Watch Parties, you can chat with up to 100 friends while you watch movies and TV shows online together. It’s almost like watching side-by-side in real life — without having to share your popcorn.

Click on the Watch Party icon on your screen for movies. You’ll find it in the episode list for TV shows.
2. Enter your name.
Choose the name you’d like to use while chatting. Create your Watch Party.
3. Invite your friends.
Share your Watch Party link with up to 100 people. Your friends can join by clicking on their link.
4. Start watching and chatting!
Once everyone is ready, start your Watch Party. The host can play, pause, skip, and seek for the group.
