New and Improved FeedFliks Search

FeedFliks Search is back! And now, search has some long-requested major improvements:

1) Search by Cast – e.g. enter “Tom Hanks”
2) Search by Director – e.g enter “Spielberg” and see
3) Search by Award – select “Oscar” and see just the titles that have gotten Oscar nods
4) When searching for Streaming-only titles, you can additionally specify HD-only, Closed-captioned-only and also limit to titles that have only recently become available on Netflix Streaming
5) Search by Movies only/TV only/Both – tons of you have written in asking for a way to eliminate TV shows from results. Well, now you can!
6) Keyword search: just enter a keyword and FeedFliks will search multiple fields for that query: entering ‘George’ for example will find movies where the director’s name contains George or someone in the cast is called George or if the movie title has the word ‘george’ in it etc.
It’s live now – give it a whirl!

FeedFliks now helps you find Netflix titles with subtitles

A couple days ago, the good folks at http://ncmacasl.blogspot.com/2010/10/netflix-instantwatch-titles-with.html emailed asking if there was a way for FeedFliks to point out what titles on Netflix Streaming have subtitles or closed-captioning. Right now, they have an entirely manual process which means a lot of (un-ending) work.

Things just got easier!

You should now see a small CC icon next to Streaming Titles on FeedFliks that have closed-captioning. See Forrest Gump, Up and The Boondock Saints below for example:

 

And yes, you can also search for just those Streaming Titles that have subtitles. Here’s a shortcut to the results page: http://bit.ly/cmpzyi. To filter, just choose ‘Instant Watch with Subtitles’ in the Format pulldown – here’s what that looks like:

On FeedFliks’ Search Page, you can add other filter conditions and change the sorting order of the results (by default, the best rated movies are at the top). This should be very useful for anyone who needs subtitles for disability reasons or otherwise.

We hope we’re making Netflix even more awesome to all of you out there!
