Problem: when watching episodes back-to-back, sitting through the intro/theme for a show is annoying. Especially for shows that I've watched many times before, like The Office.

Request: a simple and dependable way to skip the intro. Something like pressing 1, 2, or 3 while watching a video on YouTube to jump to the 10%, 20%, or 30% point of the video is what I have in mind.

  • I know that if you binge-watch TV through a Netflix mobile app, this is actually a built-in function (that I personally would like to be able to turn off). Anything at the very beginning of an episode that isn't the "meat" of the episode—recaps, themes/intros, etc.—are skipped. Bear in mind that if an episode has a cold open before a regular intro, it won't automatically skip anything (except prior recaps), as the cold open is part of the episode. – SightSpirit Nov 30 '15 at 7:29

    @SightSpirit Interesting. I'm told something like that happens on XBox as well. It's a bit frustrating that the experience varies from one platform to another. – stevvve Nov 30 '15 at 14:15

Lately, after coincidentally binge watching "The Office" (I'm not kidding!) once again, for the 4th time in a row (I don't think you need to that many times though) a little Skip Intro button showed up at the beginning of the theme song and at the end of the cold open. Click that to skip to the beginning of the content.
