Netflix no longer allowing “personal” data to be used in apps

Basically, this means your “At home”  and “rental history” sections will no longer work.  Not great, but it is what it is.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

    I don’t understand why what’s at home or in my history is considered personal data, but my personalized DVD and instant queues are not. All of it is the same: indications of my personal choices.

    What about our star ratings? Are those no longer allowed, either? I’ve noticed that iQueue no longer loads my star ratings, and that the star ratings that I make in the app no longer make it back to the Netflix website.

      I don’t think so… I was told just the “at home” and “rental history”. I’ll take a look at it next weekend when I do some iPhone5 updates.

        Thanks so much. It might also just be a problem with TV shows, which is the main thing I rent from Netflix (so I haven’t tested star ratings with movies at all).
