Netflix has announced they're changing their rating system. According to The Verge, the company's vice-president Todd Yetlin announced the company will be adopting the thumbs-up/down system as a replacement to the star-rating because "five stars feels very yesterday now" (which makes some sense if you remember YouTube also began with a five-star rating system back in the day).

Yetlin has also added that the thumbs-up/down have been in test since 2006, and that it resulted in over 200% more ratings: "More data means better recommendations, and better recommendations increases your chance of watching more Netflix videos," he concludes.

The new system will be fully implemented next April, along with a brand new percentage feature that will determine how likely you are to enjoy the recommended show.
