New Netflix button proves hit with binge watchers

Pinterest

This week, some more users mentioned on Twitter having spotted a "skip-intro" button while watching Netflix.

So far there's been a lot of positive reactions to the new Netflix feature on social media.

Smita Saran, Netflix's spokesperson, declared that the Skip Intro button is one of many features that the streaming platform is now working on. This button is said to work with two kinds of intros, ones that have a title sequence and others where the intro comes up after a cold open.

Special prosecutor: 'I won't make any pronouncements' about Loyd case
The law enforcement community was quick to slam Ayala and praise Scott's decision to remove her from Loyd's case. John Mina , the city's police chief, said he had spoken with Ayala and was "extremely upset" with her decision.

It's also unclear which shows merit a Skip Intro button at this time, considering Bojack Horseman's now unskippable opening is almost as long as Mad Men's cucumber-cool opening jam and Parks and Rec's chirpy intro combined.

The roll out has been deemed a testing phase, suggesting Netflix wants to monitor how well it is received by users before launching it as a full-on feature. But I can see why skipping the intro is a requested feature; viewers can only stomach House of Card's ominous time-lapse opening, which is almost two minutes, so many times.

Of course, if Netflix really wanted to help people binge more easily, they could just get rid of the "Are you still watching?" prompts. Back in the dizz-ay, users could rate series on Netflix with a scale of 1 to 5 stars.

Adrian Gonzalez is still fuming about the World Baseball Classic
One necessary point: If there's another World Baseball Classic in 2021, Gonzalez would be 38 years old. Gregorius drove in a run in the eighth with a flyout when the Netherlands added two runs.

It's only appearing for some users at this point, and if you do have it, you'll see it in the bottom right hand corner during the opening credits. The new feature is one of many new upgrades the brand has implemented in the past couple of months, as they followed Youtube Red's ability to download and play specific shows and movies offline. The new button to skip the opening credits will have you like, "Best friend's bachelorette party, what?"

This change in Netflix's rating system has been in development for a while.
