Apparently not . It's now on my Roku 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360, but not on my TiVo Roamio or the Netflix app in this smart TV (though the TV's app has implemented the Roku 3's 2-second-no-reload start up). I have 2 other devices with that UI: my PS3 hasn't been plugged in since I moved 7 months ago and I haven't tried it on my Fire TV Stick yet.

Can't say that I'm fond of it. Thankfully my TiVo doesn't have it yet, that being my principle Netflix watching platform (that and Fire TV Stick, which is on another television; I pretty much never watch Netflix on other devices). I guess we'll see how annoying it is by-and-by.

Last night I checked out this feature from Netflix on my Roku 3. I really like it. I hope they implement it on my TiVos and my Sony BD player soon. Since those are the devices I use for Netlfix because I like the way they work better than the Roku.
