Just like Netflix, Disney+ makes it easy to binge-watch a show by automatically playing the next episode when the first ends. If you don’t like this feature, you can turn Autoplay off alongside the app’s ability to play background videos on the landing page and throughout the app.
Disable Autoplay on iPhone, iPad, and Android
At launch, the Disney+ app doesn’t appear to display background videos on the homepage automatically. As such, the only setting that you can disable is the Autoplay feature.
Start by opening the “Disney+” app on your iPhone, iPad, or Android and then tapping on the profile tab in the bottom right corner.
From here, select the “Edit Profiles” button.
Tap on the profile that you want autoplay videos disabled in. Unfortunately, this setting has to be disabled manually for each profile. There isn’t an account-wide option for you to turn off.
Toggle off “Autoplay” and then tap the “Save” button.
With the setting disabled, you will now need to start the next video in a series manually. The Disney+ app will no longer automatically progress onto the next episode.
Disable Autoplay and Background Video on the Web
If you’re watching Disney+ using a web browser (Windows, macOS, Linux, etc.), you can disable autoplaying and background videos following a similar route as with the mobile apps.
To start, hover your mouse over the avatar in the top-right corner and then click the “Edit Profiles” button.
From here, click on the profile that you want to customize. Again, these settings have to be disabled manually for each profile. There isn’t an account-wide option for you to turn off.
Click on the toggle next to “Autoplay” and “Background Video” to disable each option and then click the “Save” button.
Disable Autoplay and Background Video on Apple TV, Android TV, and Smart TVs
The option to turn off autoplaying and background videos is also available to those watching Disney+ on smart TVs and set top boxes.
Begin by navigating to the left sidebar and clicking on your avatar in the top-left corner.
Next, click on the “Edit Profiles” button.
Select the profile that you want to customize. These settings have to be disabled manually for each profile. There isn’t an account-wide option for you to turn off.
Click on the “Autoplay” and “Background Video” options to turn them off. Navigate over to the “Done” button to save your changes.
