Get Streaming Alerts For Any Netflix Title

Streaming Alerts have long been one of the most-used and loved features on FeedFliks. For those new to FeedFliks, Streaming Alerts allow you to sign up for an email from us on the day your favorite title becomes available on Streaming (we’ll also add it to your Instant Queue if you wanted to).

One limitation was that Streaming Alerts were restricted to only those titles for which we knew were streaming soon. But lots of users are now on Streaming only plans and want to get notified as soon as their favorite titles are available to stream – even if no date has been announced yet!

Starting today, you can get a Streaming Alert for any title at all in the Netflix Catalog. The day it becomes available to stream, we’ll email you. If you want us to add it to your Instant Queue, just say so! To get a streaming alert, just click on the calendar icon  next to the title box art. The screenshot illustrates what it looks like, for example, on the New DVD Release page but this calendar icon will appear next to all titles.

Streaming Alerts are a Premium feature – sign up and you won’t be disappointed!

 

FeedFliks Introduces Streaming Central for Canada

Canada is Netflix’s biggest market after the US and Netflix boasts over a million Canadian Netflixers already. To help Canadian Netflixers sort through what currently available, coming soon and expiring soon from Netflix Streaming, FeedFliks is now happy to announce the availability of Streaming Central for Canada!

Streaming Central for Canada, by default, shows the best titles currently available to stream in Canada (which interestingly enough include many Oscar winning movies that are *not* available today in the US like The Hurt LockerSlumdog MillionaireThe WrestlerTakenMilkCrazy Heart and Black Swan etc.!)

This page can be sorted by GenreRelease Year and the ever useful Expiring Soon and Coming Soon options.

Feedback is always welcome either in the comments or at feedback@feedfliks.com.

 

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 with new and improved Actor and Director Pages

On FeedFliks, you can now sort an actor or director’s work by a variety of ways: top rated, most recent, by genre – and yes, by what’s streamable!

  For example George Clooney who has an Oscar nomination for The Descendants this year: here’s the list of streamable movies of George Clooney.

  Here’s Meryl Streep and her list of streamable movies.

  Tom Cruise : Best Movies (as per Rotten Tomatoes critics ratings) and Streamable Movies.

This works the same way for Directors too:

  Quentin Tarantino has 4 streamable titles including Reservoir Dogs and Jackie Brown

  Joel and Ethan Coen have 3 titles you can watch instantly right now.

 

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!

 

Netflix wins a long-term bet

From http://www.longbets.org/3, from April 2002:

“A profitable video-on-demand service aimed at consumers will offer 10,000 titles to 5 million subscribers by 2010.”

Another win for Netflix’s Streaming service which has handily beaten both metrics by a 100% margin.
