Netflix API Changes



Effective 15th September 2012, Netflix will no longer provide a user’s DVD or Streaming history via their API.

What this means is that FeedFliks will no longer be able to tell you how long you’ve held onto DVDs or send you email alerts when you’ve held on to them for too long. This also means that going forward we won’t be able to calculate an average cost/movie for you. Your Streaming/DVD History pages can also no longer be updated. Finally Netflix has also cut off access to information regarding what DVDs you have at home.

Note that this is not a Premium vs Free issue – no third party apps will have access to your DVD or Streaming histories.

Other features will continue to be available: both Queues will continue to be refreshed, you can still sign up for Alerts (and have them added to your Instant Queue when the title becomes available). You’ll also get alerts when titles are about to expire from your Instant Queue.

Unfortunately this is a decision Netflix made and is not going to change.
