    To cite a TV show or movie you watched on a streaming service, follow the guidelines below. Remember, the key to making good citations is to give credit to the right people/organization. You can apply these formulas to any TV or movie content you watch on any streaming service, including Netflix, Google Play, Hulu, Amazon Prime, etc.

    TV Shows

    When citing a specific episode:

    “Grief Counseling.” The Office, season 3, episode 4, NBC, 12 Oct. 2006. Netflix, www.netflix.com/watch/798356483?

    When citing an entire TV series:

    Daniels, Greg and Roger Nygard, creators. The Office. Deedle-Dee Productions and Universal Media Studios, 2006. Netflix, http://www.netflix.com/watch/798356483?

    Films or Movies

    Films should be listed alphabetically by their title. Include the name of the director, the film studio or distributor, and the release year. If relevant, list performer names after the director’s name.

    Beauty and the Beast. Directed by Bill Condon, performances by Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, and Josh Gad, Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, 2017. Netflix, http://www.netflix.com/watch/798356483?

    *These examples are in MLA 8 format.
