Sorry about that--I'm not sure what happened there. The post is here.
Anyway, i don't think i like that UI. I just got home and haven't used Netflix yet so i'll see if it works ok. Still, they need to stop changing it so damn much. It's not good. As soon as you get use to one version they go and change the whole thing.
I might tend to agree. I'm not sure that I love these changes, functionally, though they are attractive.
Yes the sub genres is what i was referring to.I loved that feature. It sure seemed like they had the entire library. Literally hundreds of titles per genre to choose from.
250 max, so yes, technically hundreds . No matter that it wasn't the entire library (which averages around 12,000 titles) it was a whole lot more than we can see in the current UI with its 75 titles max in a lot fewer genres. You could also drill down into a genre/subgenre and see 10 cover thumbs at a time (you can see some pictures of that UI here).
The movie images are too small now too
They're not as tall as they were but they are wider. The spacing seems OK to me but not any improvement.
This UI is supposedly rolling out to Roku 3 starting today. For that platform this is a massive improvement over what there was before, if it works properly.
