Netflix Testing Out 'Skip Intro' Button For Certain TV Shows



Netflix just made binge watching so much easier! Will be you be skipping intros? This allows you to skip the opening credits and theme song of the series you are watching. It seems many users are now seeing the feature - it isn't clear how widespread it is at this time, but it appears to have been rolling out in greater numbers over the past couple weeks. Although if the episodes are on auto-play, the opening sequence will usually be skipped anyway.

Originally, Netflix quelled the rumors of the buttons full-time addition, telling The Verge it was merely a test exercise and that nothing was confirmed.

Through various new launches recently, Netflix appears to understand that what millennials want is ultimate convenience.

Settling the higher or lower seed debate of March Madness
While it's easy to look at the matchup and scream "Dunk City is back baby" at the top of your lungs, that isn't really the case. He has committed only 35 turnovers in Iowa State's 33 games, and has four points-assists double-doubles this season.

'We're finding these clusters of people and then we're figuring out who is like you, who enjoys these kinds of things, and then we're mixing and matching those, ' Mr Yellin said.

However, the Netflix "Skip Intro" button is not available for all the users on the site. It is, however, still unclear whether the said button is available for all shows on the platform.

The "skip intro" button, originally discovered by eagle-eyed Reddit users almost a month ago, appears on the bottom right corner of the screen when the show's intro starts to play.

Schefter: Dont'a Hightower To Re-Sign With Patriots
Even so, that may not be enough to lure Hightower away; after all, he has won two Super Bowls with the Patriots during his tenure. With Hightower headed back to New England, the Steelers' quest to replace inside linebacker Lawrence Timmons continues.

This week, the 5-star rating system was removed from the service in exchange for a "thumbs up- thumbs down" rating.

Personally, I like the title sequences of most shows, as they set the mood.

The button apparently shows up when you hover over the opening credits. Depending on your device, Netflix may automatically skip the introductions on some platforms when you're binge-watching a show, but generally you're going to be stuck with that intro time and again. What do you think of Netflix's other upcoming changes?
