Netflix figures that if you haven't selected something to watch within 90 seconds you'll stop using their app and look for some other diversion. Auto-start is part of their campaign to get you engaged in something.

If you haven't seen it, see this animated gif:

Spoiler!


On the same front, they posted this about their new "video preview" feature on their blog. It runs a little trailer under the description in the top area when you select a title. I haven't seen this yet.

I'd forgotten this, but you can completely opt out of Netflix testing at this page. It doesn't stop them from changing your UI when they decide to broadly launch a new feature or features but it's protection from being in an A/B testing group and getting new features that they're just testing out.
