The most popular TV shows and movies on Netflix will no longer be a company secret. The streaming service is finally making the information available to subscribers via top ten lists that start arriving today.

The feature will launch as a new row that’ll display the top ten most popular content on Netflix. “In addition to the overall top 10 list, you’ll also be able to see the top 10 most popular series and top 10 films when you click on the movies and TV shows tabs,” the company said in today’s announcement.

The streaming service already has a “trending now” category, but Netflix has refrained from ranking the top ten best shows or movies. It was only last year when the company began testing an actual top ten list feature in the UK and Mexico, as a way to help subscribers find new content to watch. “Members in both countries have found them useful, so we are now rolling them out to even more,” Netflix said.

The top ten list, which will be updated daily, will only let you know what’s popular in your country. The position of the top ten row can also vary on your Netflix interface “depending on how relevant the shows and films are to you,” the company says. So you might see the feature prominently displayed at top of your Netflix feed or not all. 

Netflix will also be awarding shows and movies that’ve made the rankings with a “Top 10” badge. “That way you can easily see what’s in the zeitgeist, whether you’re browsing by genre or through your personal list — or when searching for specific shows or films," the company added.
