OData Catalog API (Preview)

Netflix OData Catalog API (Preview)

Netflix has partnered with Microsoft to create an OData API for the Netflix catalog information. This API is currently in preview mode in order to give our developers a chance to experiment with this exciting new offering. This new API provides new functionality and library support for our developers in a highly accessible form. This API is governed by the same Terms of Use as our other APIs.

  • This API works with any of the existing OData libraries, and provides XML and JSON formats for other languages as well
  • OData supports significantly more powerful queries than our other APIs
  • No signature is required for accessing the oData catalog
  • The OData API can be used separately or in combination with the Netflix API to give users a fuller experience
