Update: Netflix has said this new post-play feature is for the iPad only and it’s true, as we can’t get the feature to work on our iPhone.


  • I hate this feature for two reasons:
    – Obviously, there’s the problem of staying on the couch far too long because I actively have to stop watching, as opposed to there being natural breaks, which is admittedly the lamest, laziest statement ever, but it still happens.
    – More than that though, I hate that these things start as soon as the credits start rolling, which in many cases interrupts something happening in the credits. (Community is a prime example of this, there’s always a skit with Troy & Abed during the credits, and it gets all annoyingly tiny.) I haven’t seen this on movies yet, but I’m hoping those won’t do the same thing. I like watching movie credits. Perhaps I’m weird that way, but at least give us a way to turn it off!

  • Binge watching is the future!
