Netflix Will Not Be Working On Roku and Samsung Devices
A few weeks ago, Netflix began sending notifications to its users some old devices would not be able to run the streaming application any longer. From December 1, these devices will face a “Netflix not working” error, which though might be worded differently, have a simple meaning. The streaming service said that the devices will not be able to support its application due to their “technical limitations”. Roku has confirmed that its devices will not be able to run Netflix.
Netflix Not Working on Roku
The news, as reported by Slash Gear, states that Netflix took away its compatibility from some of the Roku devices. The “Netflix not working” issue was, however, warned by the company by sending out emails to customers about Roku devices losing its support. After a bit of research, at first, there was news of only the first two models of Roku losing support. These models were launched in 2008. Therefore, it kind of makes sense now. This is because older models find it difficult to keep up with updating applications. Netflix has updated itself a lot since it’s streaming service began.
Apart from the warning messages that some people with older devices are getting these days, Slash Gear has also posted a list of devices. Roku devices which will stop working include:
- Roku 2000C
- The Roku 2050X
- The Roku 2100X
- Roku HD
- The Roku SD
- Roku XD
- The Roku XR
- Roku models that lack auto-play support
