Netflix about has the app removed from the Samsung TV. The annoying block is affecting numerous Samsung TVs after the Korean firm said it was ending Netflix support for some models. In a post on its website, Samsung said:
“Although some of our older TV’s will no longer support Netflix directly beginning December 1st, 2019, many other devices you may have connected to your TV are still supported.
“You can find a list from Netflix at devices.netflix.com
“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.”
Uodate:Netflix has announced that due to technical limitations, as of December 2, 2019, the Netflix streaming service will no longer be supported on several consumer electronics devices, including some from Samsung. This change will impact select 2010 and 2011 Samsung Smart TV models that were sold in the U.S. and Canada. Affected devices will receive a notification reflecting this change.
This change will start from today, December 1, 2019. Samsung and Netflix claim those impacted sets will be typically older models, so anyone who has recently treated themselves to a new Samsung TV won’t find themselves left without content.
