/// You Tell Netflix What You Want to Watch, and Now It Tells You What You Really Want to Watch
One of the key features of Netflix is a vaunted set of algorithms. They are supposed to find things for you to watch on the streaming service, based on your viewing history. But if you’d like to collect your own list of things you want to watch, Netflix lets you do that, too, via an “instant queue.” Now Netflix is combining the two ideas. It is applying its computer intelligence to your watch list, and will start automatically sorting the movies and TV shows you have saved there. The idea is to show users “titles you’re most likely to want to watch right up front,” Netflix product executive Michael Spiegelman says, in a blog post introducing the change.
