This probably won’t go down well…
Netflix has confirmed it is testing promos running at the end of episodes.
A Netflix spokesperson told IGN, “At Netflix, we conduct hundreds of tests every year so we can better understand what helps members more easily find something great to watch.
“A couple of years ago, we introduced video previews to the TV experience, because we saw that it significantly cut the time members spend browsing and helped them find something they would enjoy watching even faster.
“In this particular case, we are testing whether surfacing recommendations between episodes helps members discover stories they will enjoy faster.”
The test is rolling out globally to a small number of subscribers.
Netflix has also deleted all user reviews “due to declining usage.”
Updated: Netflix advises promos can be skipped if a user is disinterested.
