    Star axing your selection

    From your activity page, you'll be able to see every show you've ever watched on Netflix - which can be pretty handy if you've forgotten the name of that obscure Polish film you watched some time last year. 

    It also allows you to remove any offending film and TV selections from your history. Just click the 'X' arrow, and Netflix will stop bugging you with suggestions similar to that streaming session. 

    Sorted.
