Netflix Features on Your Apple TV

Netflix streaming features on these devices include:

Navigation of movies and TV shows sorted by category
On newer devices, Netflix lets you browse through rows of movie and TV shows, including My List. Each row represents a category (Comedy, Drama, TV shows, etc) that we present to you based on what you’ve watched. More information about how we recommend and display movies on your device can be found here.

Older devices allow you to scroll through My List, which you can create on the Netflix website.
