Netflix Rolls Out Post-Play Feature; Marathon Watching Never Easier

By Jason Fitzpatrick on August 17th, 2012

Netflix just rolled out a new feature called post-play that will make your next marathon session of your favorite geeky show or movie trilogy as easy as pushing a button.

The new feature chains together TV shows by truncating the credits after 15 seconds and then spooling up the next episode–as seen in the video above demonstrating the feature with two episodes of LOST. The same feature works for movies in a series like sequels and trilogies–if the movie is a stand alone feature, Netflix will instead suggest a followup movie.

The post-play feature is currently available on the PS3 and the web-based interface–look for it soon on other devices.
