Did You Know Netflix Has a Thing Where You Can Request TV Shows or Movies? Album

“Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star Chelsea Peretti spread some good news to fans who didn’t know Netflix has a particular feature allowing TV and movie suggestions.

One of her fans sent Netflix Philippines a request, and Netflix Philippines replied with a link to the suggestions page:

You know the drill:

Chelsea Peretti was tagged, and helped give the “drill” more of a showcase beyond a Philippines chat:

PS Now everyone knows the drill 😉

Here’s the drill, which allows you to suggest three titles at a time.

Once you’ve submitted names (like “The Americans,” “Killing Eve,” “Fargo”), you might get a response like this:

Thanks for your feedback!
While we love hearing your suggestions, sometimes we just aren’t able to license a particular movie or TV show. Reasons we might not be able to secure a license include:

The content rights are currently exclusive to another company.
Example: Game of Thrones is an HBO Original Series.
The streaming rights are not available to purchase from the content provider.
Other factors, including popularity, cost, or seasonal or localized availability.

They also added a note that “We keep track of all requests from our members, so there’s no need to request a title more than once.” So don’t spam them with 100 requests for the same thing. It probably won’t work.

There’s also a section explaining why Netflix loses TV shows and movies, like they do every month, often seeming to ditch things fans really wanted to see.
