Should Streaming Platforms Auto-Skip the Credits?


If you've ever watched something on a streaming service, you have probably experienced the whiplash that comes when a movie ends and another one starts after a five or ten second grace period, during which you have to press the "cancel" button if you'd like to continue listening to the end credit song or seeing who played that guy. Comedian Mike Birbiglia takes issue with process, saying that the credits being skipped are part of the experience, and should be played through rather than skipped by default. A lot of people agreed, including a few notable names:




Elijah Wood

Rian Johnson


Brad Bird


Liz Jenkins


Raphael Bob-Waksberg



But there were plenty of responses to his tweet that expressed the view that no one cares about credits, and that while they may be important to actors and creatives, they're just not important to the average viewer.

Birbiglia then proceeded to offer up a suggestion that would solve the issue:


Should streamers play the credits?

Always play them
45(6.6%)
Play by default, with the option to skip
465(67.9%)
Skip by default, with the option to play
64(9.3%)
Only if there's an end credits scene
47(6.9%)

64(9.3%)

What do you think, ONTD? Should they let the credits play, or are you moving on once the show's over??
