Netflix ends support for some older Roku players on December 1st

  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.

Netflix is going to stop working on some older Samsung smart TVs beginning December 1 , 2019. Samsung broke the news on its official webpage As yet, there’s not a lot of information to go by in regards to which older smart TV models will no longer be supported after December 1 st . Samsung

Older Samsung smart TVs will no longer have the ability to connect to Netflix ’s latest updates and features. A Roku spokesperson previously told Digital Trends, “Due to technical limitations, Netflix will no longer be available on select older Roku players after December 1 , 2019.

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. Perhaps it will be updated to include specific models of devices in the future as they become obsolete.

Netflix and Roku have yet to provide us a detailed list of all the devices that will lose Netflix support on December 1 st , but Cord Cutter News says that 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

Once you have Netflix working (by unplugging/replugging), make sure that you get to the menu that has "Exit Netflix " as an option in order to get out This is not a solution but rather that a vague explanation of what might have happened and I would like to thank Samsung for their copious support in closing

Here’s the notice from Samsung’s support website, virtually identical to what Netflix said about Roku last month:

Due to technical limitations, Netflix will no longer be supported on some devices beginning on December 1st, 2019. Some older Samsung smart TV’s are affected by this change. In the future, Netflix can be viewed from many other devices capable of connecting to your TV.

As Samsung points out, you’ll be able to continue watching Netflix on your TV with a supported device, but it means that you’ll have no choice but to buy a Roku, an Apple TV, a PlayStation 4, or another device that still supports Netflix. Plenty of Samsung smart TV owners probably already rely on a streaming stick or box of some nature, but those who don’t will have to find another way to access the world’s biggest streaming service.

If and when either Netflix or Samsung release a detailed list of devices that are losing access to Netflix on December 1st, we will be sure to share it. Until then, I guess just hope that your TV isn’t one of them.
