Tumblr Site Calls Out Netflix For Atrociously Cropping Its Movies


The latest trending Tumblr will make people want to think twice about their Netflix subscriptions.

The site “What Netflix Does” calls out the streaming video site for atrociously cropping films to fit television screens and mobile devices without warning viewers. Films are ideally viewed in a 2.39:1 ratio, but Netflix doesn’t respect that ratio when it streams its films.

In the sidebar, the Tumblr’s owner wrote: “Netflix does not always respect the original aspect ratio of films. This would be by far my biggest complaint about the service, but not so many people seem to talk about it out here. Let this place be a desperate cry for help.”

See a few examples of Netflix’s cropping in the images below.
