Netflix takes Netflix & Chill to new heights

Watching movies and getting cozy is a time-honored tradition dating back to the old car movies. These days, the same phenomenon has a new name: “Netflix (NFLX) – Get a free report And relax. “If someone invites you to a ‘Netflix and chill’ session and you’ve never heard the term, brace yourself. You might end up doing background vocals for ‘Orange is the New Black.'”

The term started innocently enough as an unromantic tweet in 2009 about binge watching at the end of a long day. But as the popular on-demand entertainment service grew in popularity, the term popped up again on social media and quickly became the stuff of meme legend. At the 2015 World Maker Faire, the company showed off a prototype of a button called “The Switch” that would dim the lights, turn on Netflix, and set your phone to “Do Not Disturb.” It was also called “Netflix and Chill Button”.
