I get overly frustrated when I'm browsing Netflix and it autoplays previews. Finally, they've enabled a way to turn that off (and also the autoplay of the next episode of a series). You can only flip the switch by logging into your account on a Web browser though. Here's how:
To turn autoplay on or off: 1. Sign In to Netflix from a web browser. 2. Select Manage Profiles from the menu. 3. Select the profile you’d like to update.
Check or uncheck the option to Autoplay previews while browsing on all devices.
