How to rate TV shows and movies

To get better suggestions for TV shows and movies you might like, you can rate what you’ve watched with a thumbs up or thumbs down.  

Netflix gets a better idea of what you'd like to watch by looking at things such as:

  • The genres of TV shows and movies

  • Your previous ratings

  • Your viewing history

  • The ratings of Netflix members who have similar tastes to you

The percentage next to a title shows how close we think the match is for your specific profile.  

The ratings you provide also help us recommend popular TV shows and movies on Netflix. On Android phones and tablets, TVs, and web browsers, TV shows and movies with the most positive ratings will have a Most Liked label.

To see your previous ratings:

  1. From a web browser, go to your Account page.

  2. Open the Profile & Parental Controls settings for the profile you want to see.

  3. Open Ratings. A list of your ratings will appear.

Some older devices may show stars rather than a thumbs up or thumbs down. To save your thumbs up/down ratings, visit or use the Netflix app.
