Netflix Making Ratings Changes
Netflix is making some changes. It’s getting rid of the star rating and instead will have a simple thumbs-up or thumbs-down rating. Also, when they make suggestions for you, there will be a match-rating percentage. For example, if there’s a show they’re suggesting that seems to really match your taste, it could say 98% match. If there’s a show that only matches 50% or less of what you like, then it won’t show a match-rating. PS, Netflix beat its own record on January 8th. Users around the world streamed more than 250 million hours of movies and TV that day.
