10 movies and shows you should watch on Netflix before they expire next week

Best Netflix Movies March 2017

Over the past few months, we've been helping you decide which movies to watch before they get removed from Netflix, but this month, we're mixing it up a bit. Rather than just put movies on the list, we've included a number of television shows as well. Obviously, you'll be hard-pressed to watch multiple TV series before April 1st, but the shows leaving the streaming service are of a high enough profile that we would be remiss if we didn't highlight the fact that they won't be available next month.

Netflix has 25 new originals set for release in April – here’s the full list

Netflix Series List 2017

Netflix has been on quite the roll lately, and it all led up to the company's release earlier this week of the hotly anticipated stand-up special from Dave Chappelle. The legendary comedian came out of semi-retirement to release the first two installments from his series of Netflix specials. According to reports from late last year, Chappelle will earn $60 million from his Netflix deal. It's a remarkable sum indeed, but it's a drop in the bucket for Netflix, which continues to invest heavily in original content to separate itself from network television and from other streaming rivals such as Amazon and Hulu.

The streaming media giant has seen great success with its strategy thus far, and Netflix has no plans to slow down. In fact, Netflix is releasing a whopping 25 original titles next month alone, and we've laid them all out for you here along with their release dates.

The secret behind Netflix’s mysterious ratings system

Netflix Ratings

Netflix ratings aren't as straight forward as they might otherwise appear. As a prime example, the first season of the Netflix original Iron First has largely been derided as the worst Netflix original series to date. Many have been quick to call the series boring and tedious, with Vox going so far as to categorize it as a "an ill-conceived, poorly written disaster."

Curiously, though, when I hop on over to Iron Fist on my personal Netflix account, I see that the series has an impressive 5-star rating, joining an exclusive club populated with venerable classics like Breaking Bad and House of Cards. To be sure, what critics find interesting and engaging doesn't always overlap with what viewers find entertaining. Still, the incongruity between the show's 5-star rating and its 16% rating on Rotten Tomatoes might leave some prospective viewers scratching their heads.

So what in the world is going on here?

Netflix finally added a button to skip the opening credits

Netflix skip intro

There's no more painful first-world problem than having to always sit through the opening credits when you're binge-watching a show. Sure, it's fine if you're marathoning Sherlock and each episode is already two hours long, but I think I've sat through the Friends opening credits so many times that the theme music triggers a subconscious reaction.

The fix has always been obvious: Netflix needs a button that lets you skip the credits. Given that opening credits are normally the same length for every episode of a TV show, it's not exactly hard to implement from a technological level. It seems like someone at Netflix finally got fed up with having to manually skip, because a "Skip Intro" button is now alive and well on the Netflix web player.

A massive change is coming to the Netflix movie rating system and you might not like it

Netflix Movie Rating System

Next time you’re going to rate a movie or TV series on Netflix, you won’t be able to give it a number of stars you think it deserves. Instead, you’ll have to choose between a thumbs up (like) or thumbs down (display) option. That also means the star-based ratings will disappear from Netflix, and there’s nothing you can do about it. The change is coming worldwide starting April.

Netflix considers releasing different cuts of shows and movies for mobile devices

Netflix: Mobile cuts

The idea of watching an entire movie or TV series on your phone was completely ludicrous just a few short years ago, but in 2017, everyone is watching content on their mobile devices. In fact, mobile viewing has become so common that Netflix chief product officer Neil Hunt says the company is considering releasing new cuts of its original movies and TV series specifically for the mobile audience.

After conquering TV, Netflix is setting its sights on the movie industry

Netflix Movies

Over the past 4 years, Netflix has successfully transformed itself into the biggest purveyor of original TV content on the planet. With an unrivaled and arguably obsessive focus on churning out compelling programming across a multitude of genres, the streaming giant is planning to release upwards of 1,000 hours of original programming in 2017 alone. As a point of reference, Netflix in 2016 released 600 hours of original content.

Netflix figured out how to use way less data while streaming

netflix data usage

High quality video and low-speed connections have never gotten along particularly well. Video takes up lots of data, especially if you want it to look good, and slapping audio on top leaves you with a recipe for data cap disasters. But what if decent video didn't use a lot of data? Is it even possible? That's exactly what Netflix is trying to find out, and it showed off some seriously promising early results today, including streaming video that uses less data than even some music apps require.
