I’m a big fan of having IMDb to hand when I’m watching content, but I do find interfaces that place it on top of the content (such as the one Amazon Prime one) quite distracting, especially as the information is usually quite obvious or uninteresting!
It’s the kind of thing that’s only useful when I want it, which is normally very occasionally to find an obscure actor’s name etc. So having it pop up whenever the show pauses, etc. can be annoying!
I guess I’d be more excited by obscure information, or to have it as an option when I’m rewatching, like a kind of visual commentary track. But I don’t know about other people?
