Netflix's New Shuffle Play Button And How It Works

Netflix wants to give you some of that early 2000s iPod goodness, because it is testing a feature it is calling Shuffle Play, which will randomly play a show you’re watching, something you’ve put on a list, or a title similar to stuff you’ve watch. In other words, Netflix has finally gotten around to programming mindless channel flipping. Or maybe the analogy here is Google’s old: “I’m Feeling Lucky.” I dunno. Can’t settle on a metaphor.
