Apatow, producer of the romantic comedy series Love, who appears on the streaming network in his own stand-up, simply said & # 39; no & # 39; against the & # 39; variable playback speed & # 39 ;, which is already available on rival sites, including YouTube.

& # 39; No @Netflix no & # 39 ;, Apatow tweeted Monday, adding the streaming network hashtag to his message and saying that he would recruit other creators of programs for his case.

& # 39; Don't let me call every director and maker on earth to fight you with this. Save me time & # 39; he threatened. & # 39; I will win, but it will take a lot of time & # 39 ;.

& # 39; Don't worry about our timing & # 39 ;, Apatow added bluntly.

Netflix selectively tests the feature on Android mobile phones, allowing users to browse through episodes of programming or movies and documentaries on the site, reports Android police.

Because streaming media binge watchers are hard pressed to keep up with the latest shows, the feature would allow more media to be consumed, and in less time.

Netflix would not be the first site to offer viewers the ability to change the speed of the videos they watch.

YouTube users have been able to speed up a broadcast, including audio, with steps from 25 percent to 100 percent for years.

The Android Police report on the Netflix feature contains a screenshot of the variable speeds set at 1.25 and 1.50 times faster, as well as 0.25 and 0.50 times slower, during a streaming broadcast of & # 39; The Standups & # 39 ;, a series directed by comedian Troy Miller, with standup strips.

It is not clear whether the content used to demonstrate the variable playback speed initially caught Apatow's attention. His Tweet refers to a story from another news that refers to the original piece that was posted online by Android Police.

Netflix confirmed that it was testing the new function.

& # 39; We are always experimenting with new ways to help members use Netflix & # 39 ;, said the streaming service in a statement to Android Police. & # 39; This test makes it possible to vary the speed at which people watch shows on their mobile & # 39 ;.

As with any test, it cannot become a permanent function on Netflix & # 39 ;, the site added.

If the feature is available to all Netflix subscribers, it means they can quickly go through popular & # 39; s programs, including & # 39; Breaking Bad & # 39 ;, & # 39; House of Cards & # 39 ;, & # 39; Stranger Things & # 39 ;, & # 39; Orange is the New Black & # 39 ;, & # 39; Bojack Horseman & # 39; and his new show, & # 39; The Politician & # 39 ;.

The Apatow tweet reminds Netflix why he wants to quit such a & # 39; n function.

& # 39; We'll give you nice things & # 39 ;, he writes. & # 39; Leave them as they were meant to be seen & # 39 ;.
