Netflix Ups Fees for Blu-ray Rental
By Brett Molina
Netflix users can now share the movies and television shows they watch with friends through Facebook.
The long-awaited social features Netflix confirmed last year have been launched, reads a post from the media company. Users can view content watched by their friends as well as their friends' favorites movies and TV shows.
Users can choose which content to share on Netflix, as well as whether they want to post their TV and movie choices on to their Facebook profiles.
Netflix says all users in the U.S. will have access to the social options by the end of this week.
The features were finally added after Congress passed a bill dropping restrictions in the Video Privacy Protection Act to allow companies to share users' video rental history.
