Netflix Introduces 'My List', Starting Today
Today Netflix introduced "My List," a new way to save titles to your own row on Netflix. Roll out of My List starts today and all our members worldwide will be able to enjoy it within the next two weeks.
Members have frequently told Netflix that they would love to be able to set aside some of the movies and shows they discover when browsing Netflix, so they can have an easy place to access them when they're looking for TV shows and movies to watch.
U.S. members for years have had a feature called the Instant Queue. Netflix has found through talking to customers that though many people found it useful, they could still improve the experience.
Netflix has designed a better way to help you easily find and watch those titles you picked to watch on Netflix and is happy to introduce "My List" to all streaming members globally. With "My List" you can now quickly go to your own row or gallery on Netflix and instantly find those titles you already picked to watch.
Adding titles to "My List" is easy. Simply click "Add To My List" when viewing The Details of a title on Netflix. You can add titles from all Netflix devices and your List appears across devices. You'll see My List as a row, but you can also view your list in more detail in a gallery view.
After you've added several titles to your list, Netflix technology will go to work and sort your List, presenting you with the titles you're most likely to want to watch right up front. In tests, most members really appreciated this automated sorting and it was much more useful than the manual sorting capability of the Instant Queue.
However, if you're very keen on ordering your own List, you can go back to your own order by going to "My List Management" in the "My Account" screen on the website. For all users with a current queue, you can also change this setting on the My List gallery page.
Netflix has also added further details to the titles in your List to make it more informative. For example we will display a special tag for those TV series that have new seasons. They will also show a special call out if a title on your List will soon no longer be available on Netflix because our rights to stream it are set to expire. This feature is currently only available on the website but will be rolled out to more devices in the coming months.
If you never use "My List" or rarely watch from the related row, it will slowly drop lower on your Netflix screen so it doesn't get in the way.
Enjoy "My List" from Netflix, now you've got a simpler and easier way to find something to watch.
