    Well, I just went on and changed ours. I think it's great - the grandparents have theirs, my husband and I have separate ones, my little one has hers, and the teens have theirs. Oh, darn, my son will have to see the chick flicks his sister watches on their shared list. But I don't have to see the dumb comedies and shoot-em-ups my husband likes on mine. Works for me. :)

    Big Red '93,

    I actually agree with that completely. But I also want personalization/customization with the technology I use. How much I use it is a different conversation.

    Wow, life was so much simpler when I grew up. One TV in the home and only 3 channels were available; we had to get up to change them! Times sure have changed if we need to have 5 personalized settings for the family TV/Netflix. When I didn't like what was on TV, I went outside to play. Spent more time outside than in. It used to be the TV brought families together. I guess I can't really say anything though. We've got 4 TVs in the house with 200 channels each so we can all watch what we want. I miss the old days!

    It's great not to have to page through all the kids' stuff anymore.

    This is a very pathetic attempt to catch up. We aren't talking about advanced computing here. Personalization is so standard that to only allow 5 profiles is ridiculous. That number is only because of the average household number.

    What about families with 5 kids and 2 parents? I understand that that may seem far fetched to some people, or less important, but we're talking about the smallest amount of effort from a company to do something and they aren't doing it... and it's something their users have wanted for a long time.

    This isn't "reimagining" as much as it's "finally doing the obvious".

    Common Netflix, start innovating before someone outdoes you (and it won't take much at this rate).
