Netflix updates TV apps for the first time in 2 years

Netflix has released its first major update to its TV applications since 2013.

Now when users select a title, it will start or resume playing while displaying key information to help confirm their choice.

Netflix says the idea is to allow the content speak for itself by providing a more immersive and cinematic experience that best represents the capabilities and expectations of today’s TVs.

“Video is a rich medium for storytelling and we’ve found bringing video playback into the content selection experience makes it easier to find something great to watch,” said Netflix in a blog post accompanying the announcement.

Netflix has already started rolling this out globally, and it will be available on eligible devices over the coming days.
