New Netflix button lets viewers skip the intros on some shows

According to Entertainment Weekly, the new "skip intro" button was discovered by geniuses over at Reddit about a month ago.

Netflix users have requested the feature for some time, as some don't want to see the credits multiple times while binging a show. While open sequences are great for setting the tone of the show, it can become very repetitive when you're watching something like eight to 20 episodes in a day. This week, some more users mentioned on Twitter having spotted a "skip-intro" button while watching Netflix. The feature appears to be rolling out quietly, as Netflix hasn't officially acknowledged such a feature exists. It is, however, still unclear whether the said button is available for all shows on the platform. It seems that, for the moment, the feature is available for a handful of shows, including Iron Fist, House of Cards, Rick and Morty, and Doctor Who.

You know how when you're five seasons deep into a Gilmore Girls Netflix marathon and you've heard the theme song so many times that it's gone from cute to seriously annoying? Back in the dizz-ay, users could rate series on Netflix with a scale of 1 to 5 stars.

Spectacular opening credits sequences have been a hit with many fans of shows like Game of Thrones, Jessica Jones, and Stranger Things to the point. Given that opening credits are normally the same length for every episode of a TV show, it's not exactly hard to implement from a technological level.

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