Looked in settings. Tried clicking different places on TV screen, which just results in next episode playing immediately.

 

If do nothing next episode starts playing about 9 seconds into the credits.

 

Is there a way to watch all the credits? Thanks.

This kind of thing really annoys me. Commercial TV also does it. I think it is disrespectful to all those involved in making a film or programme. I wish some director would sue the self-important youth-obsessed trendy types who take it upon themselves to do this sort of thing. The credits are part of the production. Relax, slow down, and get over your precious selves.

This really does my head in and is a sad reflection on our society addicted to instant gratification.


Why does Netflix think that, after investing hours in a movie, that in the seconds immediately following it ending, I want to watch something else.


(full disclosure, I'm one of the few that sit through the entire closing credits at the cinema)

This annoyed me so much when I signed onto Sky for GOT a couple of years ago that I cancelled my sub and got it from elsewhere. They had this annoying voiceover advertising other shows as soon as the credits started to role.

I’d just like the option. Neon can click on screen to keep credits rolling, Netflix if set in settings, plays full credits with a full screen box or play next unless last episode of program available then have to go full screen or timer will show preview.

 

 

 

Amazon Prime can click on main picture to keep credits going. Edit, Need to verify, but can at least watch credits with a play next on screen.

 

To me the end credits and music is part of the experience, I feel it should be my choice to see them or not. Some programs have hidden gems in the credits as well. 

 

So far I’ll take it no way with Light Box and if Neon takes on Light Box engine guess it’ll lose it as well.

Got it, click on pause in the play bar - it doesn't pause but plays rest of credits.

I'm on the opposite side,  there's way to many crazy credits in movies.  They seem they have to credit every single person who ever did anything remotely related to the movie.

Credits, that's what IMDB is for.
