Netflix first announced they were testing these new playback options last year, with some of Hollywood’s biggest names at the time voicing concern.
Knocked Up director Judd Apatow, Ant-Man filmmaker Peyton Reed, and Brad Bird (The Incredibles) were among those that asked Netflix not to introduce the feature.
Bird tweeted: “Why support and finance filmmakers visions on one hand and then work to destroy the presentation of those films on the other?”
While Breaking Bad actor Aaron Paul posted on Twitter: “There is NO WAY @netflix will move forward with this. That would mean they are completely taking control of everyone else’s art and destroying it. Netflix is far better than that. Am I right Netflix”.
Paul later added: “I am honestly praising @Netflix as a company. Don’t listen to the media. Rumours are a funny thing. I love Netflix. Always have. Always will. This simply can not be true.
