Netflix is an on-demand media streaming service accessible in the US, UK, Canada and many other countries. It is a subscription based service and is available on major platforms like Windows, Linux, Mac, iPhone, Android and more. In general, any device that can access the internet using a web browser can access the Netflix service. Almost all the movies and TV serials are available on Netflix and you can enjoy them from the comfort of your home. My personal favorite serial on Netflix is the Supernatural series. I can watch one episode after another of Supernatural on Netflix for hours. The only trouble being that I have to get up and click on the Next Episode link to start playing the next episode in the series. Now you can use autoFlix software to automatically switch to the next episode in the series, as soon as the current episode ends.

autoFlix is a tiny tool developed by the BlueShirt software development. It is an open source script designed using AutoHotKey. You can download the source code and try running it through AutoHotKey, but if you do not want to bother with AutoHotKey, then you can just purchase the ready-to-run software from the BlueShirt software website at a small cost. autoFlix is available both for Windows and Mac operating systems.

After you have installed autoFlix on your Windows system, it places an icon in the notification area. It runs in the background doing nothing. But when you watch a TV or movie series in NetFlix in your browser and the current episode ends, autoFlix automatically clicks the Next Episode button in the browser to play the next episode in the series. This saves you from the trouble of getting up from your comfortable couch or bed and clicking the button. You can enjoy watching the series without getting interrupted and have hours of fun.

autoFlix also offers advanced settings which you can access by right-clicking on its notification area icon and choosing Settings. In the General settings window, you can choose to auto-run it on Windows startup, and enable the Anti-Sleep mode which prevents the Windows from entering into the sleep or stand-by mode. In the Timer section, you can choose the timer to cancel automatically episode switching after you have watched a preset number of episodes in a series or after you have watched Netflix for a preset amount of time. You can also choose to automatically shutdown Windows in the timer options.

So if you are a Netflix fan and often find yourself manually switching to next episode, then you are going to love autoFlix. It is not free but offers a great convenience at a small price.
