I wonder if they would keep Paramount Plus, or just roll everything into Netflix?

I don't see that happening. It doesn't make sense. Netflix is basically the antithesis of a Hollywood studio. Sure, Netflix makes TV and movies, but they are all about bypassing theaters for movies. Seems counterintuitive to what a Hollywood studio may want.

Re: Netflix - News & Discussion

I just received an email from Netflix Surveys asking me to join the Netflix Preview Club. Has anyone heard of this or been a member of it? I googled it and I don't think it's a scam, but you can never be too careful these days.

The email says:
As a member, you'll be invited behind the scenes to:

Share feedback on your viewing experience

Be the first to see and provide feedback on unreleased films and series

Influence how the Netflix experience evolves to meet the future needs and desires of our customers

It's legit. I signed up late last year (only 1 movie so far). Basically Netflix will email you an unique pin code. You can watch it on online or any of the apps. It may not be final product, but you get to watch it early. It will have the usual NDA and you will be offered to do a survey. There is a set expiration date, but you can watch it as many times as you like.

Thanks! I'll sign up and check it out.

Netflix is only picking up HBO series, as such? The Nevers has seems to have disappeared from Tubi since HBO Max dumped it, and that kind of show should be in Netflix' wheelhouse since they have more sci-fi and fantasy than anybody else.

It seems familiar, now that you point it out.

Didn't Netflix used to offer this type of browsing? It's very annoying that you can't just see a list of these categories, through their interface.

Netflix has so many UI misfeatures it borders on incompetence. Neither My List nor search results appear to have options to order by, for example, forward or reverse alphabetical, year, or exit date (if any). Movies and Series are not separated when displayed.

Yeah, I saw that list of category codes (there were a LOT of them) posted online somewhere a few years ago. I saved a copy of of it, but never ended up using it much.

Yes. They really want to guide you to watch, what they want you to watch, rather than what you actually want.

It's really flaky, for me. Sometimes it works, other times, it just says there are no results.

I remember a few years ago they posted the codes on a Facebook Netflix group. Thought it was interesting but not very useful, at least for me. I usually know what I want to watch. They might be better if you have no idea and want to browse what's available for a specific genre.

No more $10 ad free plan for new subscribers. But if you have it, you can stay grandfathered in.

I didn't realize Nielson could track streaming services.

Every time I open Netflix, SUITS is front and center as a featured title, so it's no surprise it's streaming well.

Yeah, they don't say the details there but I figured it was manually filled out surveys, other than that I don't know how they can detect what you watched just from some device on your internet (that wouldn't scare me away from participating). As such how representative of a sample size can they really have?

It would kill me to have to track everything on Netflix my family watched manually.

I know everyone here is feeling the pinch and annoyed with streamers raising their prices. But, it looks like Netflix is going to raise their prices again after the SAG strike ends according to the WSJ. The story is pay walled.

Once my sub is done after the free year from Verizon, I may finally cut off the service. Will only subscribe when there is something I want to watch. I am not paying more than $20 for a service that has limited new content I am interested in.

How intrusive are the ads on Netflix? I only have ads on Peacock and I don't mind them since the breaks are 60 seconds or less.

Looks like it's the ad-free plans not all plans.
