PLAY Misty for me?!.....if you have Netflix, they finally heard consumer complaints....

....they announced today that you can now turn off 'autoplay preview' when you click over any movie/tv show......so annoying.......


....Such complaints have at last been heard, as the streaming giant on Thursday announced that “members can now control whether or not they see autoplay previews,” by signing into their account and following the instructions .

There, users can shut off autoplay preview videos, as well as disable that other thing, where the closing credits of a show get thrown into a tiny window, while the next episode starts playing.........



link at Netflix website to turn off....that darn.......auto preview........?!

Thank you.
I don’t get auto preview if I access Netflix from my Dish, but I do if I access from the Roku.

I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of Reddit voices... were suddenly silenced.



It is what it is.

It didn't work on my ATV though. Anyone else? I can't stand this feature on netflix and it basically means I never browse around looking for stuff to watch (so I only use netflix for stuff that I can navigate to directly).

It likely wasn't them not hearing the complaints, they finally decided to take action.

You have to log in using your web browser and go to your account page and it says "turn off autoplay previews on all devices".

Hallelujah!!!!

Yes, I did that part. Hoping this takes hold at some point (since the apple tv is the only thing I use for netflix).
