How can I prevent the next episode of a show from playing automatically?
When streaming TV shows or content that has multiple episodes through Netflix.com or on the Netflix app, Netflix's Post-Play feature will give a brief countdown before automatically playing the next episode for you. Some devices will also play related titles we think you'll love once you've viewed all available episodes or after finishing a movie.
To disable Post-Play's autoplay feature on a Netflix profile, navigate to Your Account, click Playback Settings, then uncheck the option to Play next episode automatically. Other Post-Play features will still be enabled -- this setting simply turns off automatic playback of the next episode.
The Post-Play feature is available on many popular devices, including:
- Mac/Windows computer
- Netflix App for Windows 8
- PlayStation 4
- PlayStation 3
- Xbox One
- Xbox 360
- Wii U
- Android OS 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and later
- Apple iPad 2 and later
- Apple TV
- ...and many more!
