How to remove ads between episodes on Netflix

Getting ads on Netflix? Here are the steps to opt-out of the experience for an ad-free binge watch in the service.

Opt-out Netflix ads setting

Netflix is currently testing ads between episodes you watch in the video streaming service, which the company calls “surfacing recommendations.”

According to Netflix, the ads are trailers that are meant to help subscribers to discover content more quickly, but because users are accustomed to an ad-free service, this new approach may affect the overall binge watch experience.

If you like to continue Netflix binge without ads, you can configure your account to opt-out of the feature to continue your binge watch without interruptions.

In this guide, you’ll learn the steps to disable the test participation feature to remove ads from Netflix.
