How do I best calibrate my computer monitor to watch Netflix?

Episode 1172 (2:26:29)

Charles from Huntington Beach, CA

Charles has an Asus laptop with Windows 8.1 and wants to know how to color calibrate it. He knows there are utilities on the computer to do it, but which setting should he use when watching Netflix? Leo says that they all essentially do the same thing. If he uses a monitor with a descent color profile, Windows will get it pretty close.

If he's a photographer, he may need to create his own color profile to get the colors he's looking for. That involves a calibrator. Charles should just make sure he has it set for the correct monitor, and that's all he will have to do.
