Updated New and Popular menu option makes finding new shows on Netflix easy

There’s a brand new menu option on your Netflix when you’re watching on TV.

Simply go left to see the drop-down menu, and click on New & Popular. This is the quickest way to find new and upcoming movies and shows, perfect for those who always want to stay in the know.

It combines four super-useful rows in one:

  • Top 10 – so you always know what Australia is watching
  • New on Netflix -all the newest titles launched
  • Coming Soon – movies and shows about to release
  • and a new row called Worth the Wait, which includes films and shows that will launch in the future, and which we think you will love.

The best part of Coming Soon and Worth the Wait is that you can click on the bell icon to set a reminder. And whenever the movie/show is out, it will go straight to your My List.


‘More like this’ when deciding what to watch next: Just finished Emily in Paris and now you’re in a rom-com kind of mood, or a Paris kind of mood? Netflix will always recommend movies, shows and rows tailored to your taste. But right now, you’re still in the Emily in Paris state of mind. Click back into the title, and then click on ‘More like This’. And Netflix will recommend you titles based on your love for Emily in Paris. 

When you can’t get enough of a show, go to ‘Collection’: So you’ve finished watching all four parts of Money Heist, and the diehard fan in you can’t get enough. Or, you cried your eyes out along with Alexis, David and Noah because Schitt’s Creek is over, and it was the final season (life will never be the same again, we know)! One cool way to get behind the scenes — and this one really is for diehard fans — is to watch a ‘making of’ film.

Click into Schitt’s Creek and scroll right down to find the ‘Schitt’s Creek Collection’ which includes Schitt’s Creek: Best Wishes, Warmest Regards, which follows the cast and crew through the making of the last season, along with unseen footage from the last table read. Or similarly find the Money Heist Collection to discover Money Heist: The Phenomenon, a documentary on how the show sparked a global phenomenon. 

Curate your My List: Had an exciting new show in mind you wanted to watch over the weekend, and simply cannot remember what it was? My List is your curated playlist, and the fastest way to get watching new movies/shows without having to even decide. Whenever you see an exciting title you want to watch next, click in and hit “Add to My List”. Slowly, you will have built a sizeable list.

Now, either go left and scroll down to My List from the dropdown. Or better yet, when on the main page, simply hit the Up on your remote to go straight to My List. All the upcoming titles you added to My List also get added here automatically. So you always remember what that new show was.
