I'm not really sure what that was all about. We had NF for 5 years and I never had anything "auto play". I'm not even sure what they're talking about. I guess it happened to a lot of people.

It was when goddamned video previews would start playing the moment you logged in, before you even had a chance to select what you wanted to see.:mad:
Good riddance!!!

My satellite internet is too slow for Netflix. I’m lucky if I can view You Tube videos.

I saw that yesterday and did it immediately.

Arse Technica had a great headline:

Hell freezes over as Netflix finally lets users turn off autoplaying previews

Maybe we're not living the worst possible timeline after all.

Wow, I've never seen auto-played previews on Netflix. Maybe my ad-blockers are blocking them.

My old Panasonic DVD (with streaming) with overall crappy NF interface doesn't autoplay, but the more current Roku player NF interface does. (or now did)

My AppleTV2 has a netflix app, and it didn't autoplay. It did, however, crash repeatedly. The Roku app we use now is much more modern, and was thus infected with this "feature."

I read somewhere that they wanted to simulate the channel-surfing experience.

​​​​​​It was about a cat.

thx for the heads-up! Always been annoyed by autoplay, hope it is deactivatable (deactivable?) on Roku devices as well, or maybe since it's in the profile it affects all players?
