I recently bought a Roku 3 to watch Netflix on. Unfortunately a new Netflix update has added a feature called Post-Play that I really dislike. So I'm going to return the Roku 3.

 

I'm shopping for a streaming box that will not have Post-Play, now or in the future. What are my best options?

 

Thanks.

Before you return the Roku....

There are absolutely no guarantees what will happen in the future but I have noticed the Post-Play on my Roku 3 but not my AppleTV.

my concern is that people have been complaining about this for like a year now cause PS3 got this post play last year. And still Netflix releases this garbage to Roku 3 folks. This is upsetting. I don't want to be stuck with something that interrupts the shows when I watch them like post-play does. Apple is smart if they don't allow this crap on their Apple TV.

 

Is Apple TV my only option?

I don't like post play either, and am hoping that older model players won't get the updated UI passed to them.  Perhaps you could get a used or refurbished WD TV live...should it get the update, well, you wouldn't have paid full price on something new.

I fall asleep watching Netflix series pretty frequently, so I understand where they're coming from. I'm sure this feature will make it to all devices eventually.
