Five Things - 4Netflix is testing a button that lets you skip the opening credits on some TV shows.

The ‘Skip Intro’ button appears when you hover over the title sequence for select shows. The button works both with programs that begin with the title sequence and those that include one after a cold open. So far, the button has only been spotted on the web. Rolling it out more broadly will require app updates on the many platforms where Netflix is available.

Skipping the opening credits is a long-standing request of many Netflix users, who are prone to binge-watching.

Netflix is also replacing their 5-star rating system with a new ‘thumbs up or thumbs down’ option. The replacement will happen in April.
