How do I turn autoplay on or off?

Netflix provides two autoplay settings that you can turn on or off. Changes to these settings are specific to a profile and will take effect across all devices. You can adjust these settings from the Netflix site.

Autoplay next episode in a series on all devices

When you watch TV shows with multiple episodes, you can automatically play the next episode using autoplay without needing to manually select it. 

To turn autoplay on or off:

  1. Sign In to Netflix from a web browser.

  2. Select Manage Profiles from the menu.

  3. Select the profile you’d like to update.

Check or uncheck the option to Autoplay next episode in a series on all devices.

Note:
Your device may require a refresh to pick up the updated setting. You can force an update by switching to another profile, then switching back in order to reload your profile with the updated setting. If profile switching does not resolve this, try signing out and signing back in to the device.

When you browse Netflix, you can automatically play trailers using autoplay to get a preview of a TV show or movie.

To turn autoplay on or off:

  1. Sign In to Netflix from a web browser.

  2. Select Manage Profiles from the menu.

  3. Select the profile you’d like to update.

Check or uncheck the option to Autoplay previews while browsing on all devices.

Note:
Your device may require a refresh to pick up the updated setting. You can force an update by switching to another profile, then switching back in order to reload your profile with the updated setting. If profile switching does not resolve this, try signing out and signing back in to the device.
