Thanks for posting my comment. I really hope to see this feature soon!


It sounds like Lamarr just needs an RSS feed for HD-DVD releases only.

> Wouldn't it be great if you could customize your Netflix home page, like you can with Google?

I'm not sure how that would work, since the customized Google home page just creates "widgets" for RSS feeds. You can already include the Netflix RSS feeds on your Google Personalized Home...

Although I get what you're saying - in theory it would be cool to customize *something* on the Netflix site. Everything is too locked down.

An RSS feed would be a great start. I use My Yahoo now for my RSS feeds, this site being one of my feeds. Anyone know how I can do this for Netflix?


I like that idea a lot. I'd love the ability to add modules for my "At Home" movies, the top 5 or 10 movies in my queue, top recommendations, etc. and then move them around on the home page. That way I could do most of my Netflix business form the home page.

Regarding Google Widgets, I just added this module to my Google Homepage today: http://www.google.com/ig/directory?num=24&url=http://www.blakeschwendiman.com/gh/netflix.xml&q=Netflix&start=0

It's pretty decent. Shows my Queue, Recently Shipped/Received, New Releases and Top Movies in a neat and clean widget.

To answer Wilson's question, you can find all of the Netflix's RSS feeds here: http://www.netflix.com/RSSFeeds?lnkctr=mfRSS

Thanks junkfood! That RSS feed is a terrific feature for my My Yahoo! page. I hope Netflix hears us about this feature on their site as well!


What a great idea! I doubt it will ever happen though, since Netflix loves to use its homepage as a place to push low demand titles.
