Netflix Adds a ‘Coming This Week’ Section to Its Smart TV, Streaming Devices and Game Console Apps

Netflix has added a new “Coming This Week” section to their app on selected devices. The new section will display all of the Netflix Original movies and television shows that will be debuting in the week ahead. The feature allows users to set reminders for when the new content goes live.

Variety says upcoming titles are being teased with a trailer, and users can set reminders for when the new content becomes available on the streaming service. The new section can be accessed from the Netflix app’s sidebar, and began rolling out to Netflix users on smart TVs, streaming devices and game consoles Monday afternoon.

Titles shown in “Latest” will be updated multiple times a day, and personalized for each member.

As is usual, Netflix had tested the new feature with selected members. “It was a very successful test,” Netflix director of product innovation Cameron Johnson told Variety. The feature is limited to TV devices for now, but Netflix does have a “coming soon” section on Android phones, and is testing a similar feature on iOS right now.

While Netflix says the feature is being rolled out to streaming devices, we haven’t seen it hit any of our Apple TVs or our Vizio smart TVs as yet.
