Netflix Confirms New Button to Skip Opening Credits
Just as Netflix decided to revamp its ratings system, so too is your binge habit getting an upgrade. Users have observed a new feature that allows one to skip the opening credits of a given episode, and get straight to the good stuff.
Netflix has apparently been testing the feature over a month or so, though with a sizable chunk of Marvel fans tuning in for Friday’s Iron Fist binge, Entertainment Weekly confirmed a “Skip” feature now present for opening credits. The button only appears when using Netflix in a web browser, rather than on apps.
Also worth noting, the feature is usable on both Netflix original series like Stranger Things and Orange Is the New Black, or third-party shows licensed to the streaming service. Certain Netflix apps already skip past opening credits, so long as no cold open precedes the title credits between episodes.
