I don’t understand it either. Did anybody think that Netflix didn’t know who was watching what and how many times? It’s not like they are revealing the names of people that watch the same thing over and over again.

In other news, I have started watching The Good Place. What a load of gooseberry fool.

Hopefully that winds Hexx up a bit.

I am actually really enjoying it, although it’s rarely laugh out loud funny.

Unfortunately I had previously seen a spoiler for how season one ends, so that’s not going to shock me too much.

I just see it as a bit of fun, that people have massively overreacted over. Of course they are going to have this data, it's naive to think otherwise.

People are crazy.

I could see the problem if Netflix were tweeting “Squinty in Norn Oirland has watch a Christmas movie once a day for the last month! LOL LOSER!”. I don’t see the issue with them just saying that 52 (or whatever it was) people have watched it once a day.

I’d imagine it is mostly people with kids as well. My lad is obsessed with Moana, I must have been forced to watch it, or at least bits of it, at least once a day for the last 6 months. :lol:

I don't think many people are naive enough to believe Netflix didn't have this data anyway, but there is a general expectation that companies who have this kind of big data should be responsible with it, and that includes not openly shaming people for using their service how they want. Yes, they haven't named people, but nobody likes the idea that someone is sitting in a data centre in LA, laughing at their viewing habits. Someone, somewhere, has access to the names of the people who watch these programs, and users might not like the idea that it's part of the company's marketing strategy to find people with embarrassing viewing habits and call them out on it.

They might not like the idea, but they are pretty stupid if they didn’t know that happened.

You'd probably be pretty stupid if you thought staff in Tesco didn't laugh at about customers behind their backs, but that doesn't mean Tesco should make it their marketing strategy.

If one of the 53 people who watched A Christmas Prince every day for the last 18 days is offended by being asked "Who hurt you?", then Netflix should probably apologise.

Otherwise people ought to stop being overly sensitive about a complete non issue.

Spotify do/did the same thing, and I can't remember them getting such negative feedback.

Jackie Chan's new film set in the UK - The Foreigner was added today:



Seeing him on UK public transport is hilarious, probably qualifies for his OAP bus pass now but still love Jackie Chan :wub:

Is anyone else watching The Crown S2? I really think it's the best TV show on Netflix.
