Netflix is taking ‘Top 10’ lists and bringing them to its millions of subscribers worldwide. So, there are no more excuses for missing the popular show around the office.

With so much streaming content out there at the moment, deciding on what to watch can become a little overwhelming, especially if you’re in charge of movie night. Luckily, Netflix has just announced it will be helping you out with your next pick.

For the first time ever, the streaming giant is going to disclose certain viewership data. Starting Monday, February 24, subscribers will be able to see the overall ‘Top 10’ titles in a subscriber’s country, as well as the ‘Top 10’ shows and movies, which are updated daily.

The ranking that appears underneath ‘Movies’ – “Top 10 Movies in Australia Today”. 

The overall ranking row will appear on your Netflix home page, but not necessarily at the top. The other two rankings will appear underneath ‘TV Shows’ and ‘Movies’. To find these, the user will have to select these said individual tabs.

TV shows and movies that make these lists will receive a ‘Top 10’ badge, which will sit in the top right-hand corner of the title, and will remain there until the title falls off the list. No matter where you find the title (aka through the search bar or simply scrolling through the Rom-Com genre), the badge will always appear, making it easy for subscribers to know what’s popular without looking directly at the rankings.

The three different lists will appear under ‘Home’, ‘TV Shows’ and ‘Movies’. 

While Netflix has always had sliding scrollers to break up titles into categories, this is the first time it has ever categorised them based off viewership statistics.

The company announced the new feature via its blog post on February 24. Netflix director of product innovation Cameron Johnson said that Netflix had been experimenting with top 10 lists in Mexico and the UK for the past six months and that members in both countries have found them useful.

“We’re constantly looking for ways to make Netflix better. When you watch a great movie or TV show, you share it with family and friends, or talk about it at work, so other people can enjoy it too,” he said. “We hope these top 10 lists will help create more of these shared moments, while also helping all of us find something to watch more quickly and easily.”

Don’t waste hours fretting over what to watch – these ‘Top 10’ lists are about to make picking a popular movie for the night a whole lot easier.
