Stopping Netflix autoplay trailers with Adblock Plus · 2018-05-24 15:27 by Tom Woolford
We love it. You love it. There’s nothing better than hitting play and binge-watching your way through a series or two. The only way they could possibly ruin the fun is by bringing in autoplaying trailers… Oh wait, they did? That’s pretty annoying, especially on a paid service.
Adblock Plus to the rescue! If automatic trailers are grinding your gears, follow these simple steps:
1. Left-click on the AdBlock Plus icon in the top right of your browser.
2. Click “Options”
3. Click “Advanced”
4. Click “Edit filters” in “Create and edit your own filter list”
5. Paste the following filter into the box
6. www.netflix.com##.billboard-row (credit to shbooms on reddit).
7. Click “Save”
Netflix will no longer have autoplay video, and we can all go back to endless, annoyance-free browsing!
From your friends at Adblock Plus, happy watching :D
