If you've binged on a season of House of Cards or Breaking Bad, you're likely familiar with what Netflix calls Post-Play. It's the feature that queues up and automatically plays the next episode of whatever TV series you're currently watching. Netflix does take some measures to ensure viewers haven't nodded off; after two episodes, viewers must confirm they're still watching before streaming continues. And now the company is letting subscribers turn the feature off entirely if they so choose. Disabling post-play is as easy as visiting your account settings and unchecking the "Play next episode automatically" box. Netflix notes that "other Post-Play features will still be enabled," so you may still see details about the next episode appear on screen during the credits — but it won't start playing on its own.
