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.  

We get 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.  

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.
