Question about Netflix app on Roku Ultra 2020

I'm considering replacing my Roku 3 with the new 2020 Roku Ultra. Does the Netflix app on the 2020 model shrink the ending credits to a tiny window like the app version on the Roku 3? And yes, I'm aware that I can arrow over to the window and select it to return to full screen, but I prefer not to do that. I'm looking for a device that either runs the credits undisturbed or provides a small overlay that lets me choose.

Re: Question about Netflix app on Roku Ultra 2020

Yes, of course it does, depending (NetFlix unifies their UI/UX as much as possible regardless of SDK/platform version) - sometimes there's an option to "watch the end credits", sometimes you have to select the smaller window (depends on series/movie etc):

Though I too like to occasionally watch the end credits scroll, I would submit/suggest this is a fool's errand/much ado about nothing (having to click once or twice to continue/maximize the credit scroll just isnt worth all the hassle/aggravation/limitations of trying to find an outdated NF client).

Re: Question about Netflix app on Roku Ultra 2020

What StreamUser stated is incorrect. I have some newer devices - an Android tablet and a Samsung Smart TV - that do not shrink the credits. They have a small graphic overlay in the corners that give you a choice of watching the credits. The credits continue to run full screen while you choose.

There have been a ton of complaints online about this "feature", which is likely the reason that some newer devices have a less intrusive version of it. Whether StreamUser thinks it's a big deal or not is of no consequence to me. I am simply trying to find out how the Netflix app works on the Roku Ultra 2020. If it shrinks the credits, I won't buy it. Of course, I could buy one and then return it if has the Netflix version that shrinks the credits, but I would prefer not buying it to begin with. If someone who has actually used the Roku Ultra 2020 could reply with this information, I would appreciate it. If not, I will send an e-mail to Roku support to see if they can give me an answer.
