We all love a good TV show marathon. DVDs are great for that with a “Play All” button, but sadly this wasn’t the case with Netflix streaming. You would have to stop watching and find the controller to pick the next episode. Well, not anymore.
Netflix has announced their new “Post-Play” experience. I’m not sure why they waited for so long, but Netflix desperately needed it. When you get to the end of an episode the credits will shrink into a box while options appear to select the next episode or make other navigational choices.
If you do nothing, and you are watching a television series, Netflix will automatically play the next episode within 15 seconds. The PS3 and web versions of the Netflix app support the new feature right now, and Netflix plans to roll out the feature to their other apps very soon. Great news.
