Netflix finally brings most-wanted feature to Apple TV



Binge watchers rejoice! Netflix has answered one the biggest complaints many have had for its Apple TV app.

Netflix has finally brought “Post-Play” to the Apple TV, a feature that automatically queues up and plays the next episode of a TV show while the current one ends. Post-Play has been present on the web, Netflix’s iOS app in the App Store, and many other platforms that offer Netflix for a long time. It’s finally on the Apple TV.

Right before the credits roll on a TV episode, a little box appears on the right showing the title of the next episode, a quick plot summary, and a timer countdown to when it will play. You can also choose to manually play with the “Play Next Episode” button or browse the season’s list of episodes.

Netflix redesigned its icon on the Apple TV, and it’s nice to see such a big part of the service finally make its way to Apple’s set-top box.
