Create Netflix movie and TV show 'mixtapes' with Flixtape

If you’re looking for a weekend activity, Netflix has another option to guide your streaming habit. The company has a new Flixtape generator that takes a subject or phrase that you enter and compiles a mixtape-like playlist of three titles. You’re free to add more to keep the marathon going as well as re-order or nix the streaming service’s recommendations entirely for your own picks. Though the mixtape sentiment is there on the surface, when a TV show is selected, Flixtape lists the series as a whole, rather than specific episodes. It would be kind of like adding an entire album to the collection.

That being said, the tool is still handy for getting some suggestions. The list you see above was what I got when I asked for a baseball Flixtape. Not too shabby. A colleague typed in “I give up on life” and the results included ABC’s Scandal and the Netflix original Making A Murderer. Once you have the movies and shows selected and in the proper viewing order, you select an image from one of them to be the Flixtape cover, because the artwork is mandatory for this process. If you don’t want to make your own list, the service already has a few to choose from ranging from The Summertimes Flixtape to The Besties or Frenemies Flixtape. As always, once you have the final list, you’re free to share it on all those social channels for all the internet to see.
