Netflix is known for taking chances with its programming and how it is delivered to you.  One of their more controversial enhancements had to do with automatic video and audio previews of shows as you look for something to watch.  While the preview caught the attention of those desperately looking for their next binge, it comes off as annoying for others.  Good news for the latter half as the video streaming company has added an option for you to disable those automatic previews.  First, you'll need to log in to your Netflix account through the website (not through the Netflix app). Head to Account > Manage Profiles. Click on your profile and uncheck Autoplay previews while browsing on all devices.” While you’re here, you can also curb your binge-watching habits by unchecking “Autoplay next episode in a series on all devices.” The auto-preview has been a mainstay since 2016. Since then, Netflix has received plenty of complaints from users who just want to browse in peace, including the director Rian Johnson, writers at sites like Kotaku, and even a dedicated “Stop Autopreview” Twitter account.
