Netflix removed the "DVDs releasing this week" page and replaced it with a new design, and I received a number of complaints from readers.
Several said Netflix support people were sending them to a variety of sites to get the list of releases (don't they know that I've been posting the new releases on HackingNetflix for more than 4 years?).
Michael on the Netflix Community Blog had the follow to say:
I hear you. We all hear you. You all know we are constantly tweaking the site to make it easier to use and still highly functional. The New Release page redesign is one step towards the idealized presenting new releases. All I can say is that you have always been very constructive and supportive as we iterated on the Community features (remember how those pages began changing this past summer? Aren't they better now? Aren't they still improving?) I hope you'll give the other teams here the same benefit of the doubt while they work on things.
Michael also posted a link (found by Tygger) to the old new releases page.
What do you think of the new releasing this week page?
Thanks to Joseph, Kevin, CSB, Freeheit, Barbara, George, Matthew, Mark, Ken, Jim & David for sending this in .
