I have all the services that come with Amazon Prime.  Plus Apps Classics, NBC.  I can sign in with ATT U Verse.  I also have Alexa but he just cannot sit and listen to it go through every choice.

4-5 hours of what?  Clicking on what every 30-60 minutes? Exactly what are you trying to do?  It's difficult for people to help if they don't know what you're asking about.

Program 4-5 hours of continuous shows for him to listen to. Automatically.  So I do not have to go read through and pick out another show every time one ends to click (turn on).  He has already gone through all the full seasons choices.  Like on regular TV you turn on a channel and the shows keep coming until you turn on a different channel and the shows keep coming.

You still haven’t told us what device you’re asking about.

Peter and Ed understand what Joyce means. It does seem like loading a YouTube playlist is the most suitable route.

I don't know much about the services you referred to. I wanted to mention the playlist feature on YouTube, which may be the kind of thing that would help.

There's also podcasting, where you would usually be able to play multiple episodes in a row.

Both Netflix and Hulu have an autoload of the next episode in a series feature. Netflix however asks you after 3 or 4 in a row if you are still watching?
