It all has to be flat-style touch-screen friendly these days... Big giant 'buttons', text, medium gray on gray text, etc...

The new queue is the absolute worst. It's so much slower and more difficult to use. Ugh.

Netflix's new Queue removes two features of old Queue that I used.

The old Queue showed which titles were available on streaming (with a "watch now" button by the title). That allowed me to know what I could watch on streaming, instead of needing to obtain the disc through mail.

The old Queue showed whether the rental disc was Blu-ray or DVD.

It still shows this info for me. It shows DVD, BD, and streaming. As well as the run time, a synopsis, the main actors, the Director and the genre. I just need to hover the cursor over the title and the info pops up. As well as the ability to move it in the queue or remove it. Basically most of the same info if you click on the title and go to the Netflix webpage for it.

Aaronwt also commented on this, but I figured I would post a picture showing what I see, confirming that the Play option and DVD/BD status is still shown.





For the record I dislike the new queue because it takes up too much space per movie, and I find the re-ordering features to be super annoying. I want back my ability to just type in queue order positions rather than click around with the "Move" feature, which assumes that TV Seasons want to be moved together (often untrue in my use case).

Sometimes, I see dead pixels...

My problem with the new queue is changing the order of a TV disk. You can't type in a position number for each disk, you have to move the entire series, then drag and drop each disk individually to fine tune each disk position in the queue. Drag and drop does not work on my phone.

We appear to be unpaid testers for the beta release of this "new queue". A disgusting practice by many software company's. I hope it gets better!

Have a happy and safe New Years!
Cheers,

The old DVD queue used to let you add a title to the streaming queue. But now, you can only hit PLAY. Or go to the streaming section, search for the title, and then add it to streaming. Why can't they leave well enough alone? Oh, I know...they think more graphics are better than ease of use.

The "released in the last week page" is increasingly sucky. For example, Zoolander releases this week, but you wouldn't know it from the new release page...
