Technology Netflix will stop working on December 1st if you use one of these Roku devices
Netflix ends support for some older Roku players on December 1st
Are you still hanging on to an early Roku player to stream Netflix in the basement? You'll need to upgrade soon. Netflix has warned that it's ending support for some of Roku's oldest players after December 1st, including the Roku HD, HD-XR, SD, XD and XDS as well as the NetGear-branded XD and XDS. You should get an alert if you're affected, but Cord Cutters Newsadded that a simple feature check will do before then. If your Netflix app can'tThis wasn't surprising when Roku itself warned in 2015 that it would stop updating players made in May 2011 or earlier. These are vintage boxes that stopped receiving new material a long time ago. There's a good chance you've moved on since, for that matter.
All technology eventually becomes obsolete, but sometimes it sneaks up on us. For example, would you really have guessed that some Roku streaming devices are so old that Netflix will no longer support them by the end of the year? Asreported last week, some Roku users have begun to receive notifications that their devices will no longer have access to the Netflix app starting on December 1st, 2019.
“Due to technical limitations, Netflix will no longer be available on this device after December 1st, 2019,” explains the error message, which Netflix has also shared. “Please visit for a list of available devices [though the specific devices are not listed].”
Netflix will stop supporting older Samsung smart TVs on December 1st
Netflix has officially been around long enough that certain older devices will no longer be supported by the service by the end of the year. This includes some Roku streamers, as we reported last month, but on Tuesday, we learned that certain Samsung smart TVs will be made obsolete by Netflix on December 1st as well. On its support website, Samsung explains that technical limitations are to blame for the loss of Netflix. Unfortunately, Samsung doesn’t specify which of the smart TVs will be affected, so if you own a Samsung smart TV that you bought more than a year ago, you might want to keep an eye on Netflix’s list of supported devices.
Netflix and Roku have yet to provide us a detailed list of all the devices that will lose Netflix support on December 1st, but Cord Cutter News says that there’s an easy way to find out if your box is affected. Apparently, if your Netflix app is not capable of auto-playing the next episode in a TV series, it’s time for an upgrade.
Cord Cutter News says that a Roku spokesperson confirmed that “the first two Roku models” will be the only ones to lose Netflix, but it’s unclear if that means the first two devices the company ever released, or the first two generations of models, which include the Roku SD, HD, HD-XR, XDS, and Roku 2 series. All of these devices launched in 2011 or earlier, so it’s hard to imagine many consumers have stuck with them for this long, but hopefully Netflix will share a full list of supported devices in the coming weeks so no one will be caught off guard.
The good news is that Netflix’s current lineup of streaming players (all of which will support Netflix for years to come), so even if you are forced to upgrade, you won’t have to break the bank.

It's the end! This Monday, May 6, Freeform broadcast in the United States the last episode of Shadowhunters which, as a TV movie, concludes the series. The show, available with us on Netflix, was canceled after 3 seasons. But who is responsible? According to the showrunners, it is the famous platform that would be involved. Discover why.

The two Shadowhunters showrunners revealed the news in an interview with the British site Metro. According to them, it is indeed"We thought it was going to work" that would have decided the end of the series by not renewing its contract for international rights (the series is available from us in US + 24 on the platform). "It's Netflix who had the rights to the international and they are the ones who canceled the series.Netflix made this decision," they said. The platform did not want to comment on this information with Metro but that would explain why it did not decide to give a season 4 to the series with Katherine McNamara.
Evoking the fan effort to save the show, Darren Swimmer says he has time to keep hope ... before coming back to Earth. "At first, we thought it was going to work, I remember being on the set and thinking we had weeks to get there, and then I realized that they were dismantling the sets and I started to realize "he recalls. To discover, see you tomorrow on Netflix.
