Netflix replacing Instant Queue with "My List"

|By:, SA News Editor

Netflix (NFLX -1.3%) is replacing its traditional Instant Queue with My List, a scrolling list of user-selected titles that appears near the top of Netflix's cover image-heavy home page.

Whereas the contents of an Instant Queue are manually sorted by users, videos added to My List are sorted by an algorithm that guesses what content a user is mostly likely to watch.

The feature is being rolled out to both U.S. and international users. The latter group hasn't had Instant Queues to work with, and instead has been completely dependent on the personalized recommendations delivered on Netflix's home page.

Netflix recently added support for multiple user profiles per account.
