Netflix Changing Its Public API Program

[Techtaffy Newsdesk]

Netflix is changing its public API program.  The company will no longer issue new public API developer keys or accept new API affiliates. Existing keys that are actively calling the API will remain active, and there will be no changes to existing affiliates.

Daniel Jacobson (Director of Engineering, Netflix API): The changes… are designed to allow us to focus our API efforts on supporting the products and features used most by our members. They are also designed to allow us to continue to offer the public API program in a way that aligns with our goals.

Netflix will no longer be offering test environments as well, and the forums in the developer portal will be read-only from now on, with posts existing as archive. The OData catalog will be replied in April.
