Netflix finally redesigns its player UI with larger controls and a ‘Next Episode’ button

Wednesday, May 30th, 2018

Netflix might be one of the most popular video-on-demand services on the Internet, but it's by no means immune to mistakes. One of those mistakes was its now-former mobile player UI, which just wasn't very well thought-out. The company has finally redone the interface, and it's now much easier to use.

Netflix now lets you skip boring intros when watching shows on a Chromecast

Friday, May 18th, 2018

As much as I love The Office's intro, it does slow down marathons a bit. Netflix introduced the ability to skip TV intros last year, but the feature didn't work while using a Chromecast or similar device. Thankfully, that has finally been fixed, so you can save precious seconds on your next BoJack Horseman marathon.

When streaming shows to a Chromecast, or other other cast-enabled device, the Android app now shows a button to skip the intro at the bottom of the screen.

Netflix mobile previews on Android starting to appear for some

Thursday, May 10th, 2018

About a month ago, Netflix announced that Android and iOS apps were getting previews. The latter launched back then, but Android was simply left with "coming soonTM." Similar to the TV or web experience, these would allow you to see a quick trailer of the show or movie before you invested time in it. Now, it seems like these mobile previews are hitting a small number of devices.

Each one lasts about thirty seconds and is available on the main screen when you open the app.

Google and Netflix collaborate on Lost in Space game for Google Home

Friday, April 13th, 2018

As well as having tons of practical uses, Google Home also offers plenty of fun little distractions. You can ask the Assistant to tell you jokes or facts, and even play games with it. Tie-ins were inevitable, and Google joined forces with Netflix for a Stranger Things game last year, in which you could chat to Dustin on his trusty walkie-talkie. Lost in Space is Netflix's latest hit show, and there's a new Google Home game to go with it.

EU residents now have access to the same online content anywhere in the EU as they do back home, but that’s not necessarily a good thing

Monday, April 2nd, 2018

Anyone who's traveled to another country knows how frustrating it is to be geoblocked from streaming content that's available back at home. Due to licensing restrictions, content providers like Netflix aren't always able to provide the same viewing experience across different countries, and so some countries get access to a worse content library than others. Hypothetically, this shouldn't happen within the European Common Market (to which the European Union belongs), which seeks to "guarantee the free movement of goods, capital, services, and labour," but in reality there's always some gap between theory and practice.
