Netflix, one of the most widely-used streaming platforms, announced that it plans to start testing a top 10 list of the most popular shows and movies in the UK. This feature allows streaming users to know what is popular across the service. The list will be updated once a week and every category will get its own top.
The test is planned for the last past of this quarter. The CEO of Netflix, Reed Hastings, wrote a letter to investors, saying:
“For those who want to watch what others are watching, this may make choosing titles even easier. After a few months we’ll decide whether to end or expand the test.”
Indeed, it is still unclear whether the top list will stay with us forever, but the fans are already happy to have it. By the way, you will not be able to see how many people have watched this or that movie recently, anyway it is a notable step for Netflix.
Speaking about fans of the service, Netflix is ready that the number of subscribers will slow down between April and June as the price for subscription will rise. The changes will touch regions like the US, Brazil, Mexico, and some parts of Europe.
Such a measure will be done to boost the development of the production of Netflix’s original content in those countries. We remind you that Netflix has produced a lot of critically acclaimed masterpieces like The Crown and Oscar-winning Roma.
Disney and Apple have recently announced creating their own streaming services to compete with Netflix. However, the latter does not consider that the situation somehow influences their future growth.
