Netflix launches ‘My List’ feature

Netflix has launched a new feature designed to make it easier for users to “set aside” TV and movie titles that they plan to come back and watch. 

Netflix said it will roll out the ‘My List’ feature to all its global subscribers within the next two weeks, replacing and improving upon the Instant Queue function that has been available to US users for years.

“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,” said Netflix’s director of product innovation Michael Spiegelman in a blog post announcing the launch.

Subscribers can click to add content to their personalised list, which they can view as a roll of titles or in a gallery view across all devices. Once viewers add several titles to their list, Netflix’s technology will order this, putting titles it thinks the user is most likely to watch at the front.

“We 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,” said Speigelman.
