Netflix has finally added an option allowing you to turn off those annoying autoplay previews on its homepage.
It’s finally your time to relax. You’re sitting on your sofa, turn on the TV, and head to Netflix for that series you have been longing to watch all week. It’s your time, “me time.” And then, without reason, your TV starts blaring. Welcome to autoplay previews on Netflix.
Well, the good news is that you can finally switch those off and go back to enjoying a relaxing time on your TV. Late last month, Netflix took the conversation to Twitter when one user offered to trade their “entire kingdom for a way to turn off the autoplay while browsing Netflix.”
Replies and Retweets from thousands of users echoed the sentiment. And now, Netflix has made it a thing, as announced in a Tweet:
Some people find this feature helpful. Others not so much.

“We’ve heard the feedback loud and clear—and members can now control whether or not they see autoplay previews on Netflix.”
Netflix did not comment further on the matter but I checked, and the option to turn off autoplay previews, during browsing, now exists on both the TV app and Netflix’s website – at least in the U.S.
