Netflix tricks kids into thinking it's midnight with fake countdown

Netflix has come up with a way to ensure your kids will get to bed early on New Year's Eve.

The movie-streaming service has created a countdown to midnight that parents can set to start whenever they want. Want your kids to be in bed by 9 p.m.? No problem.

"No matter where you are, start your party anytime, anywhere by searching New Year's Eve Countdown on Netflix. And we won't tell them it's not midnight if you don't," the company said in a press release.

Watch the trailer to see how you can use Netflix to trick your kids into going to sleep early:
