After having experimented with top 10 lists in the UK, Netflix is now rolling it out to viewers in other regions. The top 10 lists will be updated daily.
Netflix top 10 lists
What are your fellow countrymen watching on Netflix at this time? Even if you do not care, perhaps there is truth in numbers or perhaps you just need a little inspiration. That seems to be the concept behind Netflix's latest feature.
Netflix is rolling out top 10 lists that will be updated daily. In addition to the overall top 10 list, you will find top 10 lists for most popular TV series and films. The lists reflect what is popular in your country.
- "This new row - complete with its own special design - will enable you to see what is most popular on Netflix in your country. It will be updated every day and the position of the row will vary depending on how relevant the shows and films are to you," said Cameron Johnson, Product Innovation, Netflix. "In addition to the overall top 10 list, you’ll also be able to see the top 10 most popular series and top 10 films when you click on the movies and TV shows tabs."
The company explained that it has been experimenting with top 10 lists in Mexico and the UK for the last six months or so. Viewers in both countries have found them useful.
Titles on top 10 lists will also carry a small badge when you come across them while browsing the user interface.
With the launch, Netflix hopes that it can create "shared moments" amongst viewers, in much the same way that broadcast events sometimes make viewers come together and have a conversation about the event.
- "When you watch a great movie or TV show, you share it with family and friends, or talk about it at work, so other people can enjoy it too. We hope these top 10 lists will help create more of these shared moments, while also helping all of us find something to watch more quickly and easily," said Cameron Johnson.
