How to Stop Amazon Prime Video from Playing Next Video Automatically

Amazon Prime Video is an online video on demand service started, developed and owned by Amazon. You can watch thousands of TV shows, movies and documentaries on Prime Video if you have subscribed to Amazon Prime. Depending on the device that you use to watch movies or TV shows on Prime Video, you can get video quality of 4K, HDR or HD. The video quality also depends on the internet connection speed that your device supports. I personally subscribed to the Prime Video to watch the Supernatural TV series and have been using it for a couple of days now.

When watching the Supernatural TV series, I noticed that Prime Video started to play the next episode in the series as soon as the previous episode finished. While this is great for wasting your dull afternoon on a lazy Sunday, I did not want it to keep playing one episode after another when I slip into deep sleep late at night. Fortunately, you can quickly disable the auto-playing of the next available video in a TV series or movie series. Here is how:

  1. Visit Prime Video in your web browser and sign-in to your account.Amazon Prime Video
  2. Click on the menu icon in the top-right corner and select Account and Settings from the menu.
  3. On the Account and Settings page, select the Playback tab.
  4. Select the Off option for Auto Play and you will see a message Your setting has been saved.Amazon Prime Video

This setting for automatically playing videos is saved in your Prime Video account and works across all of your devices on which you watch the videos, TV shows or movies. You can always turn this setting back on in case you want to watch one movie after another or one TV episode after another without having to manually play them.
