Netflix End the Gamification Idea As Quickly As It Started

Last week we reported that Netflix were testing a ‘reward’ system for their Kids’ Original shows and it seemed to have hit a nerve with a lot of you. The overall opinion from New On Netflix followers was that kids watch enough TV so why would anyone promote a system that got them binge-watching from such a young age?

As it happens, Netflix have officially cancelled the test telling Buzzfeed that they have now “concluded the test for patches and have decided not to move forward with the feature for kids. We test lots of things at Netflix in order to learn what works well – and what doesn’t work well – for our members.”
