Topic: I'd like to be able to filter out genres

A feature request - the ability to filter out genres from anything that presents me with decisions about what I might want to watch. For example and in particular, Reality is a very noisy genre that I will never choose. I don't want to waste time clicking on a title, or making a decision about, that genre. I just want it to be out of my sight.

I second that.

It would also be great to be able to filter out non-US shows.

So, on which pages on the site do you guys need this, for example?

On the Home tab, anything I haven't added to my watchlist, and anything under "Discover Other Great Shows". That's where I'm working, mostly. Bonus points for not sending "Show added on a followed channel" e-mails if it's in a genre I don't want to see.

Re: I'd like to be able to filter out genres

+1 for me.

I loved the way TVrage.com allowed filtering on their calendar page. It was MUCH more useful than ambiguous genres. They had (if I can remember) Scripted, Reality, News, Talk show, Specials, Mini-Series, Sports, Documentaries, Childrens, Other (such as Comedy or Game shows).  (They seemed to only list shows aired during prime-time, so maybe a Daytime category would be helpful here.) If anyone has a better memory please chime in.

TVrage also had a country filter on the same page.

I would love to see similar filters in NE on the Home, Episodes, Calendar, Browse, Top Charts, Watchlist, TV Schedule, and Discover pages. Basically everywhere possible.

To be clear I am talking about filters that include only the selected label and exclude the others. I suppose you could allow multiple labels to be selected if it doesn't clutter things up too much.

Re: I'd like to be able to filter out genres

In the Movie section, is it possible add a selection for "Acquired & Not Watched"?

Thanks

Re: I'd like to be able to filter out genres

Makes sense, and I have to figure out why it wasn't done with this option available in the first place.

Give me a few days and the functionality will be there!
