Netflix Will No Longer Work On Some Samsung Smart TVs Soon – Here's What To Do

Netflix Will No Longer Work On Some Samsung Smart TVs Soon – Here's What To Do

If, like us, you love nothing more than switching on your telly after a busy day and settling in to watch a Netflix series, then you're going to want to listen up.

Because if you've got a Samsung Smart TV, your days of Netflix binging could soon be over.

The company have announced that unfortunately, streaming apps for certain Smart TVs can't be updated to fit Netflix's new standards, meaning they'll soon no longer work.

You'll have until December 1st to enjoy the streaming service in full, but Samsung's website warns that after this, older Smart TVs may not accommodate the app.

However, it adds that you can still link the app to your TV using other devices, including a game console, streaming media player or set-top box.

You can browse a full list of Netflix's supported devices here, which include consoles like XBOX One, PS4 and PS3 and Virgin, BT, Humax and TalkTalk set up boxes.

The move is sure to be a blow for some telly addicts with Samsung TVs.

But the tech company has reminded users that they can still enjoy plenty of quality programmes by purchasing streaming services such as Amazon Fire, Apple TV, Chrome Cast and Roku.

You'll just have to shell out money to do so, though - with prices typically ranging from £30 to £100 for these devices - but they offer apps like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime on their platforms.

While at the moment this issue only affects owners of Samsung TVs, it could be a sign of things to come for several big subscription services.

We've recently seen the launch of Apple TV+ and Disney+ is set to launch imminently.

It will remain to be seen whether tellies will update to fit our needs, or whether we'll need to find new ways to feed our streaming addictions.
