I better not see this crap. Bad enough they shrink the credit's promoting there MA rated original crap at the end of some family, PG movies and TV shows that have a PG rating when I finished the series. I better not see no stupid pre-roll MA rated Netflix original crap trailers while when I want to watch programs like Leverage, Psych or X-Files. This will make me call Netflix and cancel the service before they get a mouth full from me.
please spare yourself the irritating aggravation that this has caused you for years or will constantly cause you and cancel now. it will make you happier and it will spare all of us the repetitive aggravation that this will bring us.

Comparing Netflix and Amazon to Hulu+ and VUDU. The first two ramp up so the first half minute is often in low-res. Hulu+ makes you sit there with "Loading" in the upper corner (at least on the app on my BD player) but starts out at full resolution. Obviously they prefer to fill the buffer at full resolution than ramp up. Same with VUDU. You're paying for HDX so you better see it the first frame.

That said, the pre-rolls on Netflix would be a way to fill the buffer so your selected title could start out at full HD rather than ramp up.

I never watch anything MA rated sorry but I hate constant swearing and sex. What gets me if they start showing pre-rolls for MA rated originals when I watch unrelated shows like they do now with their post play garbage I will complain. I might not have to worry about seeing a pre-roll original promo anyway as I think only originals show promo's for other originals and since I never watch the adult originals (just kids originals like Richie Rich, Puss & Boots and King Julian which they will most likely not show adult original pre-rolls during those shows) so I don't have to worry about.

Sorry for the rant anyway. For those who want to watch them that just don't shove them in my face even after I rated all of them not interested which means I have no interest don't show it.

Most of the time Netflix my Fire TV starts out in 1080p unless there is congestion otherwise it ramps up in about 10 to 30 seconds.

Netflix is 1080P for me within a few seconds(if not right away). Vudu is also HDX within a few seconds too(if not right away). I don't see a loading screen on Hulu+. It starts quickly. Now Amazon is the one that can really be inconsistent depending on the device. Some devices take a minute to reach HD and some will be HD within a few seconds.

They are just taking a page from the premium channels like HBO, Showtime, Starz etc. Those channels are constantly bombarding you with advertisements for their original programming as well as other content they show.
