Your "New Episodes" on Netflix

Project Status: Feature Request

The "New Episodes" banner for shows on Netflix should be related to each user profile, so that once you watch these new episodes the banner goes away. Currently when Netflix adds new episodes to a series the "New Episodes" banner is added to the cover art for everyone on Netflix and stays that way for a period of time.

What I'm suggesting is that Netflix, knowing the current user logged in and the current selected user profile, should compare watch history to the new episodes and only display the cover art with the banner when there are new episodes which have not been watched from this profile. Once you have seen the new episodes Netflix should revert back to the standard cover art for this show under your profile and keep the "New Episodes" banner intact for those who have not seen the new episodes.
