I love Netflix, I think it’s amazing and has completely changed the way i’m consuming TV shows and an odd movie here and there. Netflix launched a good 4 months ago in the UK and has been increasing it’s library of content ever since.. however there doesn’t seem to be a good way of tracking new (or vanishing) content on the UK service.
The US version of Netflix has sites such as Streaming Soon tracking their content – however there doesn’t yet seem to be a way to do this for the UK version of the site. Quite crazily Netflix’s own ‘New Releases’ section doesn’t update when new content appears, it’s hardly been updated since day one, which doesn’t give the best impression.
So.. time to take action – i’ve made a Netflix UK Content Tracker page – i’ll keep it updated (probably once a month) and track new releases and disappearing content. The first cut of data was taken on the 23rd April 2012.
