Netflix has become one of the most popular streaming services to watch movies, TV series, and documentaries. It has a wide variety of content available including trending Korean dramas, English movies that were a hit on the big screen, and even programs for kids. Hence, everyone will be able to find something to watch. However, Netflix has a default autoplay feature which many customers find annoying. It automatically plays the previews on the home screen and next episode when watching a series once the episode is over.

Steps to follow
