Netflix has a vast library of licensed and original titles for users to navigate. But selecting something to watch comes at a terrible price. The service triggers an autoplay option when a title is highlighted, running a trailer for the film or television show that can prove distracting and jarring when browsing. Worse, there was no option to turn it off. You were going to watch a preview for Orange Is the New Black whether you wanted to or not.
