Netflix Is Replacing Star Ratings With Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down

March 17, 2017, 12:15 PM UTC

Netflix is replacing its star ratings system with a simple choice of a thumbs up or a thumbs down.

When the company tested the thumbs-up-or-down rating system with hundreds of thousands of Netflix users in 2016, the thumbs led to 200% more ratings that the traditional stars, Variety reports.

The streaming service is also introducing a new feature that will give users a percentage rating on movies and shows to indicate how compatible the content is with viewers’ watching habits — like a personalized Rotten Tomatoes.

The new yes/no thumbs system will be rolled out over the next few weeks.
