After many requests from users and a long wait, Netflix has finally added a button that allows users to remove a series or film from the ‘Continue Watching’ row on the homepage.
The feature is available on the web, and on mobile and TV apps to users across the world. If you are on the web, all you need to do is hover over the show on your row, select the ‘X’ (which pops up with ‘Remove from Row’) and then confirm your decision.
On the TV, you need to click on the show or film, scroll down past the episodes and audio options until you get to the ‘Remove from Continue Watching’ and confirm your choice.
Mobile users can click on the Menu option (with the three dots) for a title in the ‘Continue Watching’ row, and select ‘Remove from Row’.
Netflix will offer you the option to quickly undo your choice on all devices, should you change your mind or do it by mistake.
This new feature means that if you can clear up your homepage of any half-finished movies or shows that you have no plans of watching – making your suggestions more tailored and useful.
Netflix rolled out this feature after giving US streamers a price bump across all its plans – you can read up on why Netflix UK prices may also be increasing soon.
If you have not yet signed up for Netflix, you can do so on the website, with plans starting from £5.99/$9.99 per month.
