If you are looking forward to binge-watching on HBO Max, you can check out some of its top and original TV series lineup. Mystery or thriller will make your night exciting, so try streaming The Flight Attendant. For sci-fi fanatics, Raised by Wolves is a popular choice. You can also rerun classic TV series like Friends, Game of Thrones, or Pretty Little Liars.
The HBO Max app has exciting features that will take your binge-watching night to the next level. If you cannot decide on a series to watch, save the other one on your Add Series to My List. HBO Max also lets you download selected titles for Offline Viewing. You can also remove TV shows and movies on your Continue Watching list to declutter your options.
But, the huge debate is with HBO Max’s Autoplay Next Episode tool. Some users love the automatic playing of the next episode in a series. It gives them a feeling of having things done for you without moving a muscle. Autoplay automatically plays the next episode even if you don’t push the Play button on your remote.
Still, other users prefer not to have the Autoplay feature at all. While binge-watching means watching more episodes in one sitting continuously, you need to stop at one point. Some users do not want HBO Max controlling it.
For instance, falling asleep at the middle or end of the episode is unavoidable. If Autoplay is on, it will continue to stream the next episode without anyone watching it. You end up waking up several episodes away from where you stopped.
How to Disable or Enable Autoplay Next Episode Feature on HBO Max App
Autoplaying the next episode works if you want to watch it. But, sleeping on it while it plays will only use up your Internet data, battery life, or power.
Unfortunately, HBO Max does not have any tool or option that will turn off the autoplaying of succeeding episodes as of this time. You have to pause or stop the playback after the episode ends manually. That being said, make sure to remember hitting the stop button before dozing off.
Which side are you in, having the autoplay feature enabled or not having it at all? We are curious to know more about your binge-watching preferences. You can drop us a comment below.
