After finishing the last few episodes of Breaking Bad today, I noticed a new feature had been added to Netflix that I had been waiting for a long time. Now when an episode has finished playing on Netflix, it will automatically start playing the next episode. This feature is a must-have for those of us who like to fall asleep to the sound of their favorite TV show. It seemed like Netflix was never going to implement such a feature, since it would consume way more bandwidth in the event that users leave shows autorun for long periods of time.
The auto-play feature doesn’t appear to be available yet on devices like the PS3 or the Roku, but PC users can enjoy it, and I hope it gets added to every device soon.
