Starting in April, Netflix is changing the way that it’s users rate TV shows and movies.

As Variety reports, Netflix executive Todd Yellin stated that the service will move to thumbs up and thumbs down system. explained how Netflix will try and battle the gradient loss of going from 5 ratings options to just two. They wrote, “the company is also adding a percentage match score that’s based on compatibility — instead of a score based on movie’s quality via reviews: ‘For example, if you see a title has a 90 percent match, that means that based on your viewing habits and patterns, we think you are highly likely to enjoy that title.’”
