Soon, instead of giving a show or movie stars, Netflix users will have to give content a thumbs-up or a netflixthumbs-down. The change comes as early as next week. The streaming company will also introduce a new match scoring method that will show how likely a user is to like a particular title. This is the first time the streaming giant will switch things up with its five-star rating system.

Cameron Johnson, Netflix’s director of product innovation told the Hollywood Reporter that they’ve made the system more intuitive with this latest update. The company wants users to spend less time browsing and more time watching. The new system will apparently provide users with more accurate recommendations. Users can still go back and change old star ratings as Netflix begins the transition to the new rating system.

The news was first announced in March. The video below introduces the new system.
