Service will not work on these devices from today — Netflix

Some Samsung smart TVs and Roku streaming devices will no longer be able to stream Netflix from December 1.

Netflix also said that users also won't be able to stream the service on old Roku sticks, including the 2050X, 2100X, 2000C, HD Player, SD Player, XR Player and XD Player. According to a press release from the U.S. streaming giant, some of Samsung's 2010 and 2011 smart TVs won't be supported from this month.

The annoying block is affecting numerous Samsung TVs after the Korean firm said it was ending Netflix support for some models.

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. And the changes do not stop there - seven older Roku streaming sticks will also no longer be supported from this month. In such a situation, if you are using any of these devices, then it would be better for you to buy upgraded devices or access Netflix on other platforms. While investing in another device may not be ideal, this will also allow users to continue using existing streaming services, along with having access to new services like Apple TV+, Disney+, and HBO Max. It is possible that older devices may not always meet the requirements for each new service or provide updates to support them.

These are ambitious plans, but decision-making in the European Union is notoriously slow and forging consensus can be painstaking. Britain refused to nominate a member for the new commission, as it is due to leave the European Union by January 31.

However, the statement did not clarify exactly which models won't be supported any more- a list of supported devices can be found at netflix.com/compatibledevices.

If your TV or Roku Player is one of the models that will be losing Netflix support, there is an easy way to know. If you start your Netflix app and lose Netflix, you'll see a pop-up message telling you that Netflix will terminate support on December 1, 2019. Do you need technical assistance with cable cutting?
