While having to confirm to Netflix that you’re still alive and watching isn’t a huge deal, well, it would be nice to binge watch through five whole seasons of Breaking Bad without feeling like you’re being judged.
And now, thanks to a Google Chrome extension (as long as you’re watching on a laptop, and not a tablet, phone or smart TV), you can!
Flix Assist will not only stop Netflix from pausing Breaking Bad just as Hank is about to break into the RV and catch Heisenberg in the act, just to askif you’re still there, it will also remove the countdown between episodes.
You’ll literally not need to lift a finger.
Of course, for those of us that occasionally fall asleep while watching Netflix, this might mean that wewake up for work to find that the story has moved on a season, but that’s a risk we’re willing to take.
You can download Flix Assist here.
