Netflix's New Look Favors 'Instant Play' Content

Netflix is rolling out a new look that emphasizes content available for streaming.

Michael Spiegelman, Director of Product Management, wrote on the Netflix Blog that the section of Netflix.com housing "Instant Play" content has been tweaked to allow more selections--with larger images--on each page.

When you mouse over a selection's title image, you'll see a Play button appear, as well as Star ratings, basic info about the selection and more.

But not everyone is a fan of the new design.

Writes Engadget, "[I]t still requires an additional click to find out if a movie is in HD or has subtitles, a misdirected click starts playing the wrong movie too easily and selecting 'your queue' still takes us to our discs first instead of Watch Instantly."

Like it or not, Neflix began introducing most Instant Play users to the changes on Wednesday.
