Netflix has racked up tens of millions of subscribers around the world because of how easy the service is to use and for the volume of content it puts right at your fingertips. It’s so easy to fall down a binge-watch rabbit hole and spend hours on the couch flying through one episode of your favorite show after another — as well as plenty of shows and films you maybe hadn’t ever heard of before and couldn’t have watched otherwise.

That very strength, of an abundance of content, is unfortunately also something of a drawback, since the machine-driven recommendation engine that drives your Netflix experience and personalises the titles that each person is presented with is just that. It’s a computer-led process, leaving some users often feeling starved of something new to enjoy and feeling like there’s a ton of content available but nothing they want to watch.

Little Known She-Ra Spinoff He-Man And The Masters Of The Universe Is Being Rebooted By Netflix

Little Known She-Ra Spinoff He-Man And The Masters Of The Universe Is Being Rebooted By Netflix Just so we’re all on the same page regarding the important information, there are currently no plans for Netflix’s excellent She-Ra and the Princesses of Power to somehow incorporate He-Man’s prince Adam into its story. But that’s not to say that He-Man’s not about to come back in a big way. Announced at Power-Con and followed by an official Netflix press release, Kevin Smith revealed he’s executive producing Masters of the Universe: Revelation, a new animated series that’s specifically focused on following up on a number of the original He-Man and the Masters of the Universe series’ unresolved story arcs.

Finally , a legit excuse to quit your job and stay home to watch some high-quality Kimmy Schmidt. From the beginning, Netflix has been preoccupied with seeing how users interact with its software 7. Netflix staffers also think you might be kind of a liar. You can stop trying to impress Netflix with the

Specifically, Netflix has something called the “keeper test,” which is a measure for management to fire or retain staff. It’s very simple; a manager is supposed to ask: “If one of the members of the team was thinking of leaving for another firm, would I try hard to keep them from leaving?”

Netflix has decided that a little human curation might help to solve that problem. That leads us to Collections, a new feature Netflix is testing on iOS devices that curates recommendations from the streamer’s creative teams into more editorially-grouped lists, behind the more basic “Action,” “Crime,” and “Docuseries” kinds of groupings that exist within the app now.

Netflix tests Collections that are curated by humans instead of algorithms

Netflix tests Collections that are curated by humans instead of algorithms Netflix is testing a new Collections section that rounds up content into themed lists like “Watch in One Weekend” and “Stream & Scream.” Netflix told TechCrunch that Collections are put together by “experts on the company’s creative teams” instead of the algorithms that ordinarily recommend content to you on the main home screen. The feature is only being tested on iOS for now. If you’re involved in the A/B test, you’ll see a pop-up the next time you open Netflix. It takes the place of the “My List” queue at the top of the app, which some subscribers might not appreciate.

Netflix licenses TV shows and movies from studios and content providers around the world, and those licenses can expire if we don't renew them. We consider factors like: Are the rights to renew the licensing to stream still available? What is the popularity and cost of a particular title ?

These new human-picked sortings have titles like “Let’s Keep It Light” and “Oddballs & Outcasts,” and you can also “follow” (subscribe) to a particular collection you’re interested in. The tweet above shows how the feature looks if you’re not lucky enough to be part of the subset of users who’re getting to test this at the moment.

“We’re always looking for new ways to connect our fans with titles we think they’ll love, so we’re testing out a new way to curate Netflix titles into collections on the Netflix iOS app,” a Netflix spokesperson told TechCrunch. “Our tests generally vary in how long they run for and in which countries they run in, and they may or may not become permanent features on our service.”

If Netflix does decide to roll this out wider and make it an official part of the app eventually, it would represent a pretty interesting complement to the algorithmically-sorted home screens that have been such a staple of the Netflix experience for years now. The streamer definitely needs to keep trying experiments like this and not rest on its laurels, with so many rivals now coming into the space to grab their share of the market Netflix has dominated for so long.

Netflix, 'show-verload', and the paradox of choice in the streaming age.
With so much content on offer, and more streaming services preparing to enter the market, we are reaching the point of TV burn-out, where the promise of choice starts to feel like a burden.
