Did Netflix used to have some party watch feature?

Didn't Netflix used to be able to watch a show or movie with a party? I'm not sure if it was ever there to begin with so, if it did why'd they get rid of it? I wouldn't mine watchin funny movies with people over live. It's like playin a game online but your just watching movies and laughin.

Well, you can always invite into a normal party chat and watch the same thing.

Yup it existed. It no longer exists. I'm assuming it was removed because the quality of the video you were watching was based on the person with the lowest connection. So if your friend happened to drop connection the movie would stop entirely

That's understandable, it's like a host Dropping from the game it should close. And yea you all could watch the same thing but it won't be on sync. And if you all do sync it the party deserve a cookie :).

IIRC, it was because Microsoft removed the ability to have people in "parties" for apps. And since the ability to do so wasn't there, Netflix couldn't have added it back in themselves.

Got any ideas to make a game with? Hit me up with them if you do.

microsoft also removed the 3d movies from the netflix app.

On the PS3 NETFLIX APP there a ton of 3d movies.
