New Netflix feature lets you watch episodes of your favorite T.V. series back to back without pause
"Netflix has launched a new 'post-play' experience which makes viewing multiple TV episodes easier, by minimizing the credits post show and cueing up the next episode,"-Netflix
Let's say you're watching a boxed set of your favorite television show on Netflix. At the end of each episode, instead of watching the credits roll, Netflix will now take a page from television broadcasters by minimizing the scrolling information that no one reads like Best Boy, Grip, Caterer, etc. and will instead cue up the next episode which will start in 15 seconds if nothing is done.

The feature is also available for movies. Instead of forcing you to watch the credits roll, Netflix will now minimize them and will offer you three recommended titles to view immediately. Those who are done watching at any time can still turn off the application instead of viewing the next television episode or watching another movie.

The new "post-play" feature is available now for the Netflix streaming experience on the PS3 and on the Netflix website and the company says that it will soon be offered on smartphones and tablets that offer the Netflix app.

except after what 3 episodes it asks if your still watching which is annoying when you have it on to clean houe or something . ALso on the kid portion it doesnt work yet.

I found a program for Windows that fixes Netflix and makes it play episodes continuously without any interruptions. It is called NextFlik and it works great for marathon TV binges or having shows on in the background. Here is the link for it.

I love this feature since I can't fall asleep without the tv being on.. I turn Family Guy on, set the sleep timer on my tv to 90 minutes and my PS3 automatically shuts off after 120 minutes of idle.

"Your" used in place of "you're" in a news article & of course, the person with the first post follows suit. Now, I've seen it all.
