In an email circulated on Thursday, first reported by CNET, Netflix said that it's getting rid of the written-reviews feature because it "has seen declining usage over time".

Why it matters: Netflix simplified its rating system early previous year, shifting from a five-star feedback method to a more streamlined thumbs up or thumbs down system.

The firm sent out an email to users who have written a review on its desktop platform in the past year, informing them that the feature will disappear at the end of the month. The reviews will be discontinued on July 30 and all past reviews will be removed by mid-August.

Butler has ‘no intentions’ of extension with…

Netflix is about to deprive its more opinionated viewers of the long-held pastime of online user reviews. From new seasons of established hits to a wide array of new original series and licensed content, Netflix consistently does a remarkable job of keeping viewers satiated with a seemingly endless stream of new content.

I spent a summer writing reviews and providing ratings on a Facebook movies app while I was at an especially useless internship, only to later discover that they'd all eventually been erased. Let us know down below!

Will you mourn the loss of Netflix reviews? Reviews for individual shows and movies didn't appear in any of Netflix's apps, but users could rate programs on the Netflix website and then add written comments.

The price for a plan that includes ultra-high definition, or 4K, video, and allows users to watch simultaneously on four different devices, went up to £9.99 ($14 in the US) from £8.99 ($12 in the US) a month, an increase of 10 per cent.

So yeah, change might be scary but this one is definitely for the better.
