How to get rid of Foreign and Independant categories from Xbox360

I really don't like foreign or indi films. I don't recall ever watching a film from either category and I don't want them. I would rather see the categories that I have set to "Often Interested"
show up instead of these two. I have set both categories to "I am never interested" in my taste preferences. I have set all languages to not interested in language preferences. Still the categories persist. I even rated a bunch of the movies in these categories as only 1 star (even though I never saw it) trying to get them to go away. At the same time, I rated Animation category as "Often Interested" and that category has NEVER shown up on the xbox.

Did you miss this on the front page?

There's no way to get rid of them that I know of, sorry.

Honestly though, if you can undo your fake one-star ratings, it would be much appreciated. You're only skewing the scale on movies other people might actually want to see.

I'll second that.

There is a conveniently located "NOT INTERESTED" button right below the stars for movies you "really don't like," Wolfie (even though you "don't recall ever watching a movie from [that] category").

Also, be sure to go to the "languages" section of "taste preferences" and check "NEVER" next to every one of those regions, since none of 'em is the good ol' U.S. of A.
ThatBoy,
Yes I missed it. I am new to the forums here (but not to Netflix in general) and figured the OP fit this category.

DaBargainHunta,
Am sorry about the 1 star ratings, it was a last ditch effort to get the categories to go away and be replaced by categories that I actually wanted to watch. I don't know why Netflix is forcing these categories on us when its quite likely we have no freakin interest in them. Its even worse that they are forced on us in lieu of categories we actually marked as being wanted.

I do thank both of you for caring enough to reply.

Dude...I know EXACTLY why this happening: Obama. He's destroying this great country and Netflix is complicit in the whole thing. It's the New World Order and it's happening everywhere, not just Netflix.
Have you by any chance called Netflix and asked them?

I mean they would be the more authoritative party to inquire with. We are just a bunch of Movie Lovers, we are not in any way officially linked with Netflix, well except that they linked our community as a courtesy...
No, I have not. I try to exhaust online resources like boards and google before I tie up time waiting on hold and dealing with tech support from India.
Ha! You've obviously never talked to Netflix Customer Service. Short holds (usually less than a minute) and the staff is American.
And they speak English and know how the Netflix service works!

Amazing isn't it?!?
I am not sure how the Xbox 360 version of Netflix works, but on the PS3, you have the standard categories (yes, including foreign/indy) but you also get 3-4 rotating categories that cover all kinds of sub-genres. Does the Xbox 360 get this too?

This at least proves that the categories can change around, but I don't think there's any way for a user to add/subtract/control this in any way.
Who Knows? Oh wait I know who would know....

Netflix Customer Service!

And Made in the good ole US of A!
This is how it is. But I really just ignore it as I only watch movies that are in my queue.
