At launch, mobile video previews in the Netflix app are available for "many hundreds of titles", according to Netflix's Todd Yellin and include both originals and licensed shows.

Offering short clips of shows to entice viewers isn't new for Netflix - previews have been a feature on its website and TV app for a while.

"Mobile previews present members with a fun, simple, and easy way to learn about all the new content on Netflix - and find something great to watch even faster", said Netflix Director of Product Innovation, Cameron Johnson. Video previews were first launched in late 2016 for the Netflix TV app. The video is optimized for vertical format so you can consume it without switching the phone to landscape, and it's supposed to load "very quickly".

The company says that the value of previews is clear.
