Netflix unveiled a new TV interface to make things simpler for its members. “The new interface was based on rigorous research and testing around how we can make it easier to find titles on TVs, where navigation can feel a bit tougher when you restricted to just a few buttons on a remote control,” said Stephen Garcia, Director, Product Innovation. It’s now easier to search and view new content added to the service, and simpler to start browsing with either a series or movie. “Our research has shown us that while a member generally isn’t sure what exact title they want to watch, they have a pretty good sense of whether they are in the mood for a quick series episode or a longer movie experience,” said Garcia.
