So folks can find the newly added TV shows & Movies, please post them in The OFFICIAL Noteworthy New Arrivals to Netflix Thread and likewise, the posts in that thread about costs, service, etc should really be in this thread.

Re: Netflix - News & Discussion

OK, this is a long shot but maybe someone can help me out with this.

As of a couple of days ago, Netflix starting doing something really annoying when viewed through my PS3 app. Before when I browsed titles and clicked on one, it would take me to a screen with more show information and some options like "Play", "Rate", "Add to Queue" with a still image from the show. Now when I click on anything, there are still those options but the show itself starting playing full-volume from the start in the background. It's really really annoying. This doesn't happen when viewing Netflix on other devices (like PC or iPad).

Does anyone else know what I'm talking about? And if so, do you know how to get rid of it?

It started happening on my Roku. There's a big thread about it in the Roku forum:

They announced this new feature in the Netflix Blog last month:

Re: Netflix - News & Discussion

Now that I have a 4K TV, I upgraded to get the Ultra HD tier. They have a few 4K titles available for streaming. Most are Sony, and include the following:

Lawrence of Arabia
Hitch
My Best Friend's Wedding
Jerry McQuire
Bad Asses on the Bayou (yea?)
The Patriot

And the spate of TV shows, including:

The Blacklist
Long more
Breaking Bad
House of Cards
Chef's Table
Marco Polo
Sense8
Grace and Frankie
Daredevil

I just hope they put up some non-Sony movies up.

Seeing Lawrence of Arabia in 4K is absolutely incredible. Very vibrant seeing it this way. But I think I'll skip watching Hitch.

Netflix is starting to dry up for me. Maybe I watched too much in the past. In a few months there should be more too watch. At least with Hulu there is always something new too watch.

They've been doing pretty well imo, they added Moonrise Kingdom, Skin Trade, The Bank Job, The Road Within, Men Women and Children, new seasons of Ax Men, Blacklist, The Fosters, CAll the Midwife, Comedy Bang Bang, Portlandia, Longmire S4, Haven S5, etc; in the last week. Narcos is only a couple weeks old... I dunno, they seem to add new content at a pretty quick clip.

Re: Netflix - News & Discussion

Narcos is the only thing you mentioned that would be of interest too me. I prefer the older tv shows.

Comedies,for the most part,have run their course(for me,at least).

At the most,I will watch 2 seasons of a tv series per year(that way I don't get burned out). For the rest of the year I need too watch a couple of seasons of Dr Who, season two of Weeds,season two of Perry Mason(CBS All-Access) and season two of Alfred Hitchcock Presents.

That's why I like being able to switch between Netflix regions, it opens up the variety of choices tremendously.

I can always go back and watch movies on Netflix,as long as I have only watched it once this year and it has been at least 90 days since the last viewing.

Is there a site that tells you what is on netflix in other regions like instantwatcher for the U.S. ? It would be helpful. I agree that it gives you so many more options.
