Netflix Offering Opening Credits Skip

Netflix is reportedly testing out a way for viewers to quickly skip the opening credits in its series.

A Reddit user has discovered a new “skip intro” button, which works with shows that contain regular titles sequences – hovering over the opening minutes of several series including “House of Cards,” “Stranger Things,” “Mad Men” and “Iron Fist”.

According to The Verge, the feature has only been spotted on the web, and requires Netflix to offer an update in its app if the streaming giant wants to roll out the button to other devices.

This follows on from comments earlier this month the company is getting rid of its five-star ratings system in favor of a thumbs up/thumbs down style deal.
