Netflix Stops Working On Some Samsung Smart TVs, Roku Devices

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".

According to a press release from the USA streaming giant, some of Samsung's 2010 and 2011 smart TVs won't be supported from this month.

It said: "We've notified all impacted members with more information about alternative devices we support so they can keep enjoying Netflix uninterrupted". Affected devices will receive a notification reflecting this change.

Samsung has also informed that Netflix will not work on smart TV models of 2010 and 2011, in which C or D are given after screen size and model number.

Although some of our older TVs will no longer support Netflix as of December 1, 2019, many other devices that you may have connected to your TV will continue to be supported. In the future, Netflix can be viewed by many other devices that can connect to your TV. And the changes do not stop there - seven older Roku streaming sticks will also no longer be supported from this month.

To see if your device is supported by Netflix, you can find the full list of supported devices here.


If you have an older Roku player, Vizio, or Samsung Smart TV, you may be looking for a new streaming player tomorrow.

These embody the Roku 2050X, Roku 2100X, Roku 2000C, Roku HD Participant, Roku SD Participant, Roku XR Participant and Roku XD Participant. Netflix will not be accessible on these media players due to technical compatibility.

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.

Still ranking at an incredible 8.5 out of 10 on IMDB, the Scorsese movie has truly lived up to the hype that surrounded it after it landed on Netflix this week.

If you're sitting down with a takeaway this weekend though, a long stretch of mob warfare might be a bit much.

Spoilers lie ahead, LADs - beware.
