Nodding off with Netflix this weekend? It’ll look a bit different when you wake

Spring has officially sprung and Netflix is celebrating the new season by springing a few changes on its subscribers.

This week it finally nixed star ratings in favour of a Facebook-like thumbs up/down system, and now it is bringing brand new screensavers to its TV apps.

These designs, which appear on users TVs after idle periods, aren’t very abstract, neither are they representative of the wider selection of content available to stream.

They’re actually reminders that, when you wake up from your nap or come back from your shower, you could actually be watching the firm’s original shows like Daredevil and Orange is the New Black.

The company quietly rolled out the rotating promotional tool without any fanfare, surprising some of the folks who “woke up at 2am with this Netflix screensaver on my TV.”
