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

On the company’s blog, Stephen, Joubert and the Netflix Team write:

“Now when you select a title, it will start or resume playing while displaying key information to help you confirm your choice. We’re letting 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.

“We’ll start rolling this out globally today, and it will be available on eligible devices over the following days.

“We’re thrilled to bring this innovation to members and will keep working hard to improve the Netflix experience on TVs.”
