    Find and click "Netflix".
    It will be marked "NEW". Scrolling horizontally will change the page, and clicking the down arrow next to "Apps" will allow us to change our sorting method, which can make finding an application in this list easier. In this demonstration, we are sorting "by date installed", which conveniently places Netflix first in this list, because it was installed today.
