What Does the Netflix Thumbs Up Rating Mean?

Netflix Has a Major Change to Rating TV Shows and Movies


Netflix has a feature to make watching what you like easier. The company announced it's replacing its star rating feature with a thumbs up or down instead.

Now, when you thumbs up a TV show or movie, you'll get recommendations that are a "95 percent match." If you thumbs down something, it'll be kept off any recommendation list. Use it over and over again to get more personalized matches.

Netflix explained in a video that it got rid of the stars because "Ratings on Netflix have never been a reflection of popularity." You can watch the company's full reasoning behind the switch ahead.

Netflix continues to make binge watching easier — and we're totally here for it.
