Napflix Is The Netflix That Deliberately Puts You To Sleep

The video platform is full of nothing but boring videos

Sometimes you need help lulling yourself to sleep, but the problem with Netflix to that end is that you’ll be watching “House Of Cards” and before you know it, it’s 3 a.m. Thankfully, Napflix has arrived with a collection of videos meant to put you to sleep.

The site explains that it’s a “video platform where you can find the most silent and sleepy content selection to relax your brain and easily fall asleep.” The videos are sourced from YouTube. It offers lots of ballet, dry documentaries, and so forth. A few examples of what you’ll find in there are the “1992 Tour De France,” the “2013 World Chess Final,” “Traditional Latin Mass,” and a documentary called “The Long-Term Future of A.I.” In short, it’s not unlike the  wave of “Slow TV” that came to Netflix over the summer.

Further catering to the sleep-inclined set, it will also let users set a timer so the video will shut off after a certain amount of time, or it will automatically close the video once it’s over. That said, Napflix won’t prevent you from waking up with your laptop still open on your stomach. Happy napping!
