Netflix Abandons Star Rating System for Thumbs Up/Thumbs Down

You can officially say goodbye to five star ratings on Netflix. It  was rumored, but now it's official: the company has  ditched its star  rating system in favor of a simple thumbs up or thumbs down. According  to the streaming company, this will give users a more accurate list of  recommendations. 

Based on a user's thumbs up and downs, each show will come with a  "match score" thanks to Netflix's behind the scenes algorithms. 

As Netflix bigwig Cameron Johnson explains, "The  more you teach us about your unique tastes, the better job we can do  suggesting your next great binge-worthy show or that perfect title for  movie night." 

Check out a video Netflix released explaining the switch to the right.
