Why Delete Continue Watching on Netflix?

Ever since Netflix came to India, I was tempted to use it. After getting feedback from my friends, colleagues and reading a few Netflix reviews, I finally took a subscription. If I have to briefly tell my experience with Netflix I would simply say it’s awesome.

Netflix has this cool feature of maintaining a queue of Shows and Movies you’ve been watching. On clicking on a particular show/movie in the queue it starts from the point you stopped it. This is very useful if you had to leave for urgent work while you were watching a movie. The next time you don’t have to search for the movie and play it again rather it shows up in the Continue Watching queue and even resumes from the point you stopped it.

However, the downside to this feature is that if you didn’t like the series or the movie and you closed it intentionally still it would keep showing in the Queue, which is irritating as you don’t intend to view it later either. Moreover, many times I have observed that even if the complete series or movie is watched completely still it remains in the Continue Watching queue.

Final Words
