Netflix Will No Longer Work On Certain Samsung TVs

There’s no denying that Netflix has totally changed the way we watch TV. In the not so distant past, we had to choose from what was currently on, and if we missed an episode of our favorite show, we we S.O.L. Nowadays, in a world where we can watch pretty much whatever we like, whenever we like, it almost seems unfathomable. It’s no surprise Netflix has been a huge success since it first launched back in 1997

But in recent weeks, Netflix has been hitting us with disappointment after disappointment. Firstly news that classic binge-worthy show The Office was set to leave to go to an exclusive NBC streaming platform left many wondering what they would watch next.

And then, to add fuel to the fire, Netflix announced they were planning on cracking down on those who share accounts. We think we speak for all of us when we say sharing accounts is basically the backbone of Netflix, right? In fact, it’s such a popular “trick” that it’s become a huge factor in deciding whether or not to break up with someone.

Speaking at the Netflix Q3 2019 Earnings Interview, product office Greg Peters talked about the business’s plans to “continue to monitor it. We’re looking at the situation. We’ll see those consumer-friendly ways to push on the edges of that.” All we can say is yikes.

But the latest news to hit Netflix fans may be the most devastating yet. There has been an announcement that for certain TV types, accessing Netflix will no longer be as simple as a couple of clicks. The brand that’s going to be affected is Samsung.

Fans spotted an announcement on the brand’s website which read, “Due to technical limitations, Netflix will no longer be supported on some devices beginning on December 1st, 2019. Some older Samsung smart TVs are affected by this change.

Not all is lost for Samsung users, though. The brand explained, “In the future, Netflix can be viewed from many other devices capable of connecting to your TV. Although some of our older TVs 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 netflix.com/compatible devices. 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.”

Meaning while this will be an inconvenience, Netflix will still technically be available. Which leaves us with one question: how far can Netflix push viewers before they abandon the platform altogether?
