Netflix Stops Working On Some Samsung Smart TVs, Roku Devices

Netflix will stop working on some smart TVs from Dec 1

Netflix will no longer be supported on Samsung 's 2010 and 2011 smart TVs, due to 'technical limitations.' Samsung explained: "Samsung was recently notified by Netflix that as of 1 December, the Netflix app will no longer be supported on selected 2010 and 2011 Smart TV models sold in Canada and the US".

Come Monday, some Roku users will have no choice but to upgrade if they want to continue streaming Netflix. The same goes for "select 2010 and 2011 Samsung Smart TV models that were sold in the USA and Canada", but, once again, model numbers weren't provided.

It is the go-to TV streaming service for many people, but Netflix will stop working on several popular television sets.

"On December 2nd", a Netflix spokesperson told Gizmodo earlier this month, "Netflix will no longer be supported on a small number of older devices due to technical limitations".

However, Samsung of these TVs already exist in the Netflix app will not work, but a few other methods with the help of these also on Netflix stream will be. "As long as you have one of the supported devices, like a game console, streaming media player, or set-top box, you'll still be able to watch Netflix on your TV", said the company.


Those who use one of the devices that are no longer supported will probably need to buy a new streaming device to continue watching content with their Netflix subscription. It is possible that older devices may not always meet the requirements for each new service or provide updates to support them.

If your TV or Roku player is one of the models that is losing Netflix support, it's easy to see.

However, the statement did not clarify exactly which models won't be supported any more- a list of supported devices can be found at netflix.com/compatibledevices.
