Launch your Favourite Netflix Genre with Power BI

by | May 14, 2020 | xViz

It is the Quarantine period, and a lot of us are taking the couch during the weekends to watch movies and television series on Netflix. Sometimes, it becomes very cumbersome to spend hours of your free time scrolling around the menus in the Netflix sections, only to end up re-watching the same movies and shows again! The streaming service also provides suggestions based on our previous watch history and we fail to discover the hidden gems as we are led on by recommendations in our watch list.

This interactive Power BI Dashboard helps you to identify all the different sub-genres and niche selections that are not visible explicitly inside Netflix.
