Netflix Gets A Site Redesign (Not Nearly As Drastic As The Last One)By: Chris Crum - June 13, 2014
If you visit the Netflix website today, you’ll probably notice that it looks quite a bit different. For one, they finally switched over to the new logo they’ve been using on some things lately. This includes a new favicon.
Beyond that, the top navigation bar is bit different, as is the coloring of the site.
Last time Netflix rolled out a major redesign, there was quite a bit of backlash from users. That was about three years ago. I don’t expect that this time, as the functionality of the site has mostly been left in tact.
That said, the absence of the DVD Queue link in the new design is a little annoying if you still use that service. You have to click over to the DVD site (which was recently rebranded), find the link, and click it from there. Still, that’s a pretty minor inconvenience.
One reason that it’s been helpful to have access to the DVD queue from the streaming site is that you can easily see DVD titles in your queue that have become available for streaming, and add them to your list from there. 6.7 million people are still using the DVD service.
Here are some titles coming to Netflix over the next week.
