Back in April Netflix decided to remove ratings and replace them with a more simplistic thumbs up/down system and this meant we could no longer show you the average rating for each show. So, we are pleased to say that we now show up to four ratings from different sources on the website. If you head on over to the main New On Netflix site you can see for yourself.
We now show the historical ratings from Netflix (before the thumbs were introduced and obviously these won’t get updated anymore), the IMDb rating, Metacritic rating and Rotten Tomatoes score. These are handily converted into a 5-star system so they can easily be compared. Hover your mouse over them and the actual rating will be shown in the text. Please note that some films and series may not have Metacritic or Rotten Tomatoes scores but nearly all should have at least IMDb.
We hope you find this a helpful resource and we welcome any feedback or suggestions.
