Netflix just made a lot of people who can't stand motion previews on their media home screen happy. The company announced in a tweet that it now allows people to turn the "feature" off, just like disabling in-between episode autoplay (which was added in 2014).

If the motion of several tiny rectangles of content on your Netflix home screen bothers you, there's now an easy fix.

Simply go to Netflix's help page and select the little arrow next to "Autoplay previews while browsing on all devices."

The instructions are to sign in to your Netflix account from a web browser, select Manage Profiles from the menu there, and choose the profile you want to update. Then, uncheck the Autoplay previews while browsing on all devices option. If you want it back on, just do the opposite.

And, while you're there, you can disable (or enable) the Autoplay next episode feature on all devices if you feel like it.
