Why doesn't netflix have a decent way to browse content? I feel like i'm fairly stuck with the 50-100 titles shown to me on the homescreen, why can't I browse their thousands of titles that they do they have outside of a search bar? why do I have to know the shows name to find it?

Also, why can’t I permanently hide the shit I have zero interest in?
14 Jan 2018 18:57 - +3765
Because they want to control the content you see and direct you to certain shows.. ex: Netflix created etc..

Type a single letter into the search function and be amazed at the titles you never knew were on Netflix
14 Jan 2018 21:23 - +952
You are correct, browsing Netflix is a complete joke.
14 Jan 2018 19:21 - +780
They use to be setup to browse by category. New, Sci-fi, Adventure, etc. I really miss that.

Unfortunately, I feel Netflix thinks they need to think for us. They really don't. There is no way their site couldn't be a hundred times better. Amazon has sold me countless items I didn't know I wanted or existed. Why can't Netflix recommend something other than the mainstream everyday drivel? I watch a lot of documentaries and stand up comedy and they push Will Smith movies on me all day. I feel as if my Netflix homepage looks exactly like my mother's or a brand new subscriber's.

/u/ophello used GREP to put the code after the genre, then used Excel to reorder the list alphabetically.

My biggest gripe: I use a Vizio Roku TV. When I open the Netflix app, I have a "continue watching", a "popular" tab, and then categories upon categories. But MY OWN FUCKING LIST IS 50 CATEGORIES DOWN. Why the hell do I have to scroll for days before I get to a list of shows I've been meaning to start? It's so poorly designed. Edit: I had no idea to just "scroll up" as some have suggested. It's still 3 or 4 clicks up from the first screen. I still find it ridiculous that the list of shows I've added myself is more or less hidden so they can show me other shows to put on that list and then never find again.
14 Jan 2018 21:10 - +210
The interface they’ve begun using on streaming devices is annoying in general. Constantly pushing their originals, shuffling and rearranging displayed categories every time you open the app and then auto playing every damned thing you idle over for more than a few seconds. I cancelled Netflix after binging the new Black Mirror season. They’ve got a few decent shows but a lot of their original content is frankly pretty bad and I don’t think they’re worth keeping for more than a month here and there to watch a specific show or two.
14 Jan 2018 22:49 - +91
I just came here to see if I could get upvotes for complaining about the damn autoplay while I'm browsing. "I'm trying to read, dammit, don't start acting at me!"
14 Jan 2018 22:20 - +89
TIL Netflix has thousands of titles.
14 Jan 2018 19:42 - +67
Use Upflix, app on your phone. That’s how I find new stuff!
14 Jan 2018 22:42 - +64
My wife and I were just talking about this two days ago. I see some titles repeatedly displayed in like 5 different categories.
14 Jan 2018 23:15 - +52
Also why isn't "Continue Watching" and "My List" the first things I see?!
14 Jan 2018 21:53 - +51
Thanks for the tips guys but we should not forget that the Netflix search is heaven compared to the Amazon video service
14 Jan 2018 19:44 - +50
i use justwatch.com
14 Jan 2018 21:36 - +40
You used to be able to sort easily and see everything they had A-Z on their website. Then they removed that. So lame.
14 Jan 2018 22:28 - +39
I honestly think they would benefit from an option like reddit: When I thumbs down something, hide it from my feed. It would give a chance for other things to be seen, and not waste my time with things I either hated, or would never watch.
14 Jan 2018 21:35 - +37
Use something like this to browse for a full selection list... https://usa.newonnetflix.info/catalog
14 Jan 2018 22:36 - +22
I often wonder that. I’m a pretty big film snob and whenever I go to Netflix I get this idea that there is only like 50 movies on there Little did I know like so many classic movies are on there at any given time like young mr Lincoln or Howard hawks films. It’s cool
14 Jan 2018 23:28 - +21
I hate that I have no options to delete shows that I watched 10 seconds and found out it was a total Turkey. STOP SHOWING ME SHIT I JUST WATCHED FOR LOKE 5 SECONDS. GIVE ME A DELETE BUTTON.
15 Jan 2018 00:11 - +19
Because they don't wany you to realize how much they've downsized their library while upping the price.
14 Jan 2018 21:49 - +17
Here is a site I use to find new stuff to watch and see what’s being added removed. http://instantwatcher.com
14 Jan 2018 21:33 - +15
Agreed. I was shocked when I saw my brother's recommendations and saw all the movies that I've been missing because they weren't suggested.
14 Jan 2018 22:31 - +15
I wish they would at least separate movies and TV.
14 Jan 2018 22:29 - +12
This is one of the reasons I stopped subbing to Netflix. Their interface is absolute trash. Their organization is fucking abysmal. Want to look at comedy movies/shows? Well here's a fuck ton of stand up. Fix your shit, Netflix. Pirating is easier and as bountiful as ever. My $8/mo PIA sub gets me far more than your $11 sub did.
14 Jan 2018 22:30 - +12
Still wish there was a random button
14 Jan 2018 23:04 - +9
They used to have a feature where you select a show and then could request to see "more shows like this one". I used that feature to find lots of great shows to watch. I'm sad that it's gone.
14 Jan 2018 23:26 - +7
This. It infuriates me. Because I'm paying a monthly fee, and there could be shows I know nothing about but would really love to see yet have no idea they're there. This, in turn, makes me watch less of Netflix.
14 Jan 2018 22:43 - +6
It helps to browse by catagory actually and then in the top right there is usually a drop down box to change search options from "suggested for you" to "A to Z" Should help a lot!
14 Jan 2018 22:03 - +5
I have always used this for both Amazon Prime and Netflix. http://instantwatcher.com/
