Netflix is testing a redesign of its website that would for the first time separate movies and television shows into separate tabs, each with dozens of subcategories to help users sort through their thousands of options.
The potential redesign is currently being tested with a small number of users. If the video subscription company finds that the design increases overall usage, it could deploy the new look to all 23.4 million of its Internet streaming customers in the U.S.
Currently, users can find movies and television shows to watch on Netflix's website by searching or via suggestions the company makes based on content the user previously watched. The only subcategory currently featured in a tap on the top is "Just for Kids."
The possible redesign, pictured above, features separate "TV" and "Movies" categories alongside "Just for Kids." By hovering a mouse over either category, users can then select from subcategories such as "'70s TV," "Reality TV," "Documentaries" and "Thrillers."
