Netflix removes 'add to DVD queue' from streaming devices

Netflix will remove the "add to DVD queue" button from its interface on streaming devices in order to free up resources and "improve the overall streaming experience," the company said in a blog post. The Netflix website, which is still the most popular way users manage their DVD queues, is unaffected by this change.

The blog post is vague about what's actually being removed, and which devices will experience the change. It's clear that the"add to queue" button is going away, but it's not clear whether that means the queue manager will be removed entirely, and whether search results will be limited to the streaming library only. As far as affected devices, consoles and set-top boxes seem like a no-brainer, but it's not clear whether Netflix mobile apps are also being revamped.
