You don’t think Netflix will leave TikTok-style comedy feed on the phone, right? Sure, the company is rolling out an experiment that brings the Fast Laughs feature to TVs. Opt in and you’ll get a bunch of hopefully funny clips from Netflix shows, movies, and (of course) comedy specials. Find something you like and you can see the whole thing or add it to your watchlist.
The addition is “slowly” rolling out to subscribers in English-speaking countries including the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. If it’s enabled, you’ll find it a few rows deep in your homepage. Fast Laughs will respect your content settings, but it won’t be available on children’s profiles.
The expansion may seem odd for a feature effectively built to draw people glued to their phones’ social media apps, but it’s easy to see the logic of a TV version . Fast Laughs is ultimately a discovery tool for viewers who can’t decide what to watch. This can help you tackle a show relatively quickly when the trailer (or Netflix’s seemingly endless carousel) isn’t enough.
