First, you need to have Amazon Prime subscription to access Prime Video. Follow the below-mentioned procedure to disable automatic trailer/ad playback on Amazon Prime Video.

  • Go to Primevideo.com on your computer
    Select your profile
    Go to Accounts and Settings
    Select Player
    Turn off autoplay trailers

This menu can only be accessed via a desktop web browser.

Post this procedure, close the Prime Video tab on your computer, and reopen the same on a desktop or access Prime Video on your smartphone or a tablet. Amazon Prime Video will stop the auto-ad playback on the selected profile and will start playing the content that you have chosen.

Similarly, Amazon Prime Video also allows users to disable the auto playback of the next episode when watching a web series. The same has to be toggled off from the accounts and settings menu. This will give more control to the user instead of auto-playing the next episode by default.

Do note that, if you have more than one profile, the setting has to be changed on all the profiles manually to disable ads on Prime Video. Given Prime Video is a premium OTT platform, it is good to see that Amazon has given the option to control the advertisement playback on the Prime Video platform.

The company has buried these settings deeply in the menu to make it hard for users to find the same. Amazon does advertise some of the shows and movies that have been recently made available on Prime Video and disabling the same would hurt the platform in promoting the new content to its users.
