When binge-watching a show, there are times one wants to speed up or sometimes slow down the content. This feature as Netflix’s new addition can only be turned on manually for every new title.

“We’ve also been mindful of the concerns of some creators,” a spokesperson of Netflix told. “It’s why we have capped the range of playback speeds and require members to vary the speed each time they watch something new — versus fixing their settings based on the last speed they used.”
