How to Watch the End Credits on Major Streaming Services

Whether you want to acknowledge the contributions of the many “below-the-line” entertainment industry professionals who worked on your favourite streaming movies and TV shows, or you just want time to get a snack before the next episode rolls, it’s a good idea to turn on the “watch credits” option on your streaming service.

Netflix, Hulu, et. al. don’t necessarily make this super-easy to do — it should be opt-in, not opt-out — but here’s a guide for how to watch the credits on Netflix, Prime Video, HBO Max, Hulu, and Disney+.

How to watch the end credits on Netflix

Here’s how to use Netflix’s website to change the “auto-play” setting for your account.

  • Navigate to your Netflix account page.
  • Click the profile with the setting you want to change.
  • Click “Change” next to “Playback setting”
  • From here, you can turn off the “auto-play next episode,” and turn off “autoplay previews” too. This should carry over to all devices that use this account.

You can also change this setting from your mobile device.

  • Fire up the app.
  • Click the account icon at the upper right corner.
  • Click “manage profiles.”
  • Select the profile you want to change.
  • Unselect “Autoplay Next Episode” and “Autoplay previews” (if you want.

How to watch the end credits on Amazon Prime Video

If there is a way to change the autoplay settings from the Prime Video app, I can’t find it, so you’ll have to log onto the website to do it.

  • Navigate to Prime Video’s front-page.
  • Click the gear icon at the top right of the page.
  • Click “Settings”
  • Click “Player”
  • Turn autoplay off. (And “autoplay trailers” too, if you want.)

How to watch the end credits on Disney+

Disney+ lets you change the auto-play setting on your devices, but it’s in a little bit of a weird place. Here’s how it works:

  • Navigate to the Disney+ Homepage
  • Click the Profile icon at the top right of the screen.
  • Click “edit profiles”
  • Select a profile
  • From here, you can click the Autoplay button to turn off the feature. As an added bonus, you can turn off “background play” as well.
