Greasemonkey Script: Netflix Q Status
“I thought it would be fun to write a Greasemonkey script which means I had to find a problem a Greasemonkey script could solve. The one I came up with was an issue I had with adding new movies to my Netflix queue.

“Before writing the script I would hit ‘In Theaters’ and ‘Coming Soon’ sections of the popular movie websites ( and such) so I could add movies to my queue before they go to DVD. I would also look at other movies that have been out for a while and check their ratings also. That led to a lot of copying and pasting titles into the Netflix search box. Sites like are good for the current stuff but you can’t search deep into past movies and be able to add them to your queue easily. Plus you can’t look at the respective sites ratings on said movie with sites like dvdlater.

“So I made a script called Netflix Q Status. This script puts a little Netflix icon next to the titles of movies at popular movie review sites. You can click on this icon and get a popup box with movie info and queue status directly from your Netflix account. You can also add the movie to your queue right from the box. You do have to be a member of Netflix and logged into your account for it to work.”

Netflix download limits highlight haphazard rights deals
"The problem is that the expiry limits aren't listed alongside each movie and TV episode, so if you're planning for a long trip there's absolutely no way to know how long the movie or TV show you're downloading will stay on your phone.

"Sometimes the expiry timer starts from when you press play, but again there's no way to know this up front — which is especially frustrating if you're downloading content for young children who tend to want to watch the same things over and over. As it is, you're in danger of wasting a lot of time and data downloading offline content that's still going to leave you in the lurch.

"After chasing Netflix for more details I learned that all downloads expire after 30 days, even if you haven't watched them — something which isn't included in the FAQ but that Netflix should have explained. The 30-day expiry date isn't marked in the download list, you're just given a seven-day countdown as the date approaches, which makes it more difficult to manage your offline library before a long trip."

"You’ve got Breaking Bad. You’ve got Mad Men. You’ve got... Paddington and Minions and Kung Fu Panda 3. This is going to be a huge deal for parents. Movies include Boyhood, Pulp Fiction, Nightcrawler, Good Will Hunting, Hot Fuzz, and more. Netflix says more content will support downloads in the near future."
