Announcing Trailers for Netflix

November 17, 2012

Look at me! I made something and put it on the Internet. It’s called Trailers for Netflix.

I’m a big fan of Netflix Instant Streaming. But I had a problem finding stuff to watch on it, especially movies. Netflix is a giant wall of DVD box art and that didn’t help me find movies I’d like. So I didn’t watch many movies, even though I had already paid for them.

So one day I was sitting in a movie theater enjoying the movie trailers and I saw 3 or 4 movies I’d like to see. And then I had an epiphany. Why can’t I do this with the stuff on Netflix? Those movies are just as new to me as these upcoming theater movies.

So I made Trailers for Netflix. I cross referenced movie trailers on the Internet and the Netflix Instant catalog, did some usability testing and there you go. It’s will change your life, if you have Netflix. If you don’t have Netflix, you should sign up for their free trial.

At our house we’ve had a few already paid for family movie nights watching movies we never knew we’d like. And those movies were already right there on Netflix instant. We just needed to see the trailers.

It’s free, no sign-up needed, and fun. I hope you like it.
