Netflix has announced a new website that will notify users of the top 10 lists based on the most-watched content in various categories. Lists will let users see what’s popular on the app and what to watch when they’re in the mood to try a new show or movie but don’t know where to start.
Spending a ridiculous amount of time on Netflix deciding what to watch before actually hitting play on an episode or movie is a real hassle for many people. This has prompted Netflix to launch features like a ‘Play Something’ button, which will suggest new content to users based on their viewing history.
While the ‘play something’ button is useful for many people, it may deter you from trying new genres of movies and TV shows, as you will be recommended the same kind of content as you are watching. This is where the Netflix Top 10 website will come in, showing users what other people are watching the most around the world.
The new website will initially help Netflix users with four top ten lists categorized by Top 10 Movies (English), Top 10 Movies (Non-English), Top 10 TV Shows (English) and Top 10 TV Shows (Non-English) . ) rankings will initially be available for over 90 countries and will support English and Spanish for now, although support for more languages is promised in the future.
How will website listing work?
The lists on the Netflix Top 10 website will track the success of various movies and shows from Monday to Sunday, and then update the lists as of Tuesday. The company has also clarified that different seasons of a show will be counted as separate titles, and repeated clocks will be added to the title’s viewing hours.
All content available on Netflix will be eligible to be included in the list, which includes licensed movies and shows as well as Netflix originals. The figures will also be rounded off to 10,000 taking into account any fluctuations in internet connectivity around the world.
In the meantime, Netflix won’t be removing the Top 10 lines on its mobile apps, and these apps will also continue to show recommendations based on your viewing patterns, unlike the new Top 10 website, where everyone lists lists on what they’re watching. will be curated. Just your viewing history.
