  1. Sucks they can’t just make it possible to press a little “X” next to the Netflix movies or shows we want off our front page. Why would it be so hard to allow us to do such a thing? Maybe if we all send Netflix complaints they would put this in. I mean, we are paying customers, and we feel such a thing should be allowed.

  2. This is absolutely ridiculous. I clicked on something “questionable” and watched 2 seconds of it before closing it, and now it’s in my viewing history forever, unless I cancel my account. WTF is Netflix doing? Do they want people to have to cancel their accounts? I’m at a loss as to how that could possibly be beneficial to them.

    • Same thing happened to me, which is why I’m looking for a fix and came here. There is no fix apparently. They lost hundreds of thousands of subscribers and still no changes? I saw about 3 minutes of a movie and shut it off and it was forever on a list of watched movies, as though I saw the whole thing. Then I had to explain to the others using the same Blu-ray player. I hate Netflix’s unwillingness to respect customers! Adults have every right to watch R rated movies without them showing up to their kids. The cover art alone on many of their options bothers me…I don’t need it recommended or featured for my whole subscription.

  3. I just spoke with a Netflix representative and the Netflix recommendation is to watch enough movies to push the undesirable movies off the list.

    My response to him and recommendation to the community is to create a program to randomly chose 100 G or PG movies to watch for 30 seconds and then cancel and chose the next movie. This will push all the actually history off the list. I am going to write such a program. I would suggest others to do the same and publish them in the public domain.

    This will force Netflix to reconsider as programs like these begin to be used it will 1) eat Netflix bandwidth cycling through movies your not actually watching and 2) screw up all the statistics that Netflix wants about what you “like” to watch.

    Holding out on a delete history function is a bad decision on Netflix’s part, especially when the recommendations from their service reps are to push bogus data.

    • Let those of us who don’t know how to right this type of program where to find it so we can also use it. I for one would be grateful to throw Netflix into a tailspin!
