Netflix, one of the most popular online media streaming platforms, has discontinued support for many devices as of December 1st. Affected devices include Samsung Smart TVs and Roku Media Player.
According to Netflix, these devices lose Netflix support beyond the “technical limitations”. In short, your favorite entertainment app, which occupies an important position in your lifestyle, will stop working after December 1, 2019.
According to Netflix, the only solution is: “You need to switch to a compatible device before this date.”
Here, all devices lose Netflix support as of December 1st.
Samsung has announced in its support forum that its smart TVs from the years 2010 and 2011 with the words “C” or “D” after the screen size of the model No. All lose the support for Netflix.
To check if your TV is affected, find the model code on the back of the TV. Alternatively, you can open the media in the list of menu options and select Contact Samsung. This will display the product information directly on the TV screen.
If your TV is labeled “C” or “D,” you can upgrade your TV to stream Netflix or stop continuous playback in burst mode.
Roku XR, XD, SD, 2100X, 2050X, and 2000C Roku media players are not compatible with Netflix-incompatible Roku media players. In addition, any device that can not play the next episode of a track automatically loses Netflix support from that date.
So, if you’re part of the relevant user group and you want to stop watching Netflix, there’s a cost-effective way to continue doing so. And luckily you do not need to upgrade your TV for that.
You can purchase an Amazon Fire TV Stick and connect it to your TV via HDMI to continue watching Netflix on your TV. See netflix.com/compatibledevices for a complete list of Netflix supported devices.
