How can I keep the next episode of a show from playing automatically?

When streaming TV shows or content that has multiple episodes through or on the Netflix app, Netflix's Post-Play feature will give a brief count-down before automatically playing the next episode for you. 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/PC
  • Netflix App for Windows 8
  • PlayStation 4
  • PlayStation 3
  • Xbox One
  • Xbox 360
  • Android OS 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and above
  • Apple iPad 2 and later
  • Apple TV
  • Chromecast
  • ...and many more!
