Netflix Adds Skip Intro Button to Online Streaming

Netflix Adds Skip Intro Button to Online Streaming

According to The Verge, the "Skip Intro" button also allows you to skip the intros that start after a show's cold open.

If you feel like long title sequences are getting in the way of your epic binge-watching nights, Netflix is trying to help you out. According to Business Insider, it is now available on Orange Is the New Black, House of Cards, Iron Fist, The Office, and Mad Men.

As the name suggests, the skip intro button will enable viewers to skip the entire intro that's at the start of every episode. Undoubtedly, open sequences are great for setting the tone of the show; but it becomes repetitive when someone is watching eight to twenty episodes in a day.

'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. Back in the dizz-ay, users could rate series on Netflix with a scale of 1 to 5 stars.

A secret list of Netflix codes has been revealed, helping you watch your favourite TV shows and films.

Title sequences are typically pretty short, so to me it's a non-issue.

Netflix has already tested its new ratings system on a select number of users.

However, not all of shows available on Netflix let users skip through.

For viewers who are binge-watching a show, it can be annoying to have to watch the opening credits and hear the theme song numerous times, so Netflix is testing an option that allows viewers to skip the intro altogether.
