Netflix on Android gets 'Post Play', Chromecast will soon Netflix has brought its 'Post Play' functionality to Android phones and tablets after it was well received on other platforms.
On the Neflix website, the PS3 and several other devices, Netflix will automatically choose what you may want to watch news and pre-buffer it. In the case of TV shows, it lines up the next episode in the season you are currently viewing. In the case of movies, it will provide three recommendations to try next.

Post Play is now available for Android and tablets. However, with Android phones it will only work for TV shows; you need a tablet for it to work for movies.

To take advantage of Post Play with Android devices, you need an Android phone or tablet running Android 4.0 or newer.

Netflix also promised that it will bring Post Play functionality to Chromecast users soon.

Download the new Netflix Android app from Google Play.

I got rid of Netflix years ago....but from what I've read lately it seems like they would work on reducing the buffering of the actual show you are watching rather than PRE- buffering another show in the background. Then maybe they could stop blaming the ISP for their buffering problem.
