How to Stop Netflix Autoplay Trailers

YouTube player


Few things are more frustrating than when you turn on Netflix and you instantly have to scramble for a remote to turn down the volume associated with the trailers and show previews that start playing automatically. After years of forcing users to deal with this, Netflix is finally making it possible for people to turn off these previews. The only caveat is that the only place you can disable Netflix autoplay trailers is through the Netflix website. However, disabling Netflix autoplay previews there turns them off across all Netflix platforms, such as Roku, Xbox, Amazon Fire Stick, and PlayStation. Examples of all instructions in the steps can be seen in both the YouTube video above and the image collection located beneath the steps.

Steps to Stop Netflix Autoplay Trailers

  1. Open a web browser, navigate to, and then log into your Netflix account. You’ll land on your Netflix home screen.
  2. Click the drop-down arrow next to your profile icon in the upper right corner of the screen. A drop-down menu appears. Choose “Account” in the menu. The Account screen is displayed.
  3. Move down to the My Profile section, and then click “Playback Settings.” The Playback Settings screen is displayed.
  4. In the Autoplay Controls section, click to remove the check mark to the left of “Autoplay previews while browsing on all devices.” Click “Save” at the bottom of the screen after making this change. You’ll be routed back to the Account screen, where you’ll now see a message at the top of the screen letting you know that your playback settings have been changed. Now, when you’re on your Netflix home screen on any device, the trailer that autoplays both when you launch Netflix and navigate through episodes will be turned off and you can open and navigate Netflix in peace.
