A Sad News for Netflix Users.
It offers a variety of films, television shows and various latest content at affordable subscription fees, and all you need is an internet connection and a smart device to enjoy this service.
While as much as we love this service which runs great and lots of people are already its members, there's unfortunately a sad news for people with older smart devices.
The Netflix streaming platform has confirmed that as of December 1 of this year their app will no longer be compatible with several much older devices.
The change is due to some technical limitations of the devices and will affect various Smart TVs from Samsung, Sony and Toshiba, as well as several Blu-Ray devices of those brands and some Roku players.
For televisons, it is estimated that those created between 2009-11 and some of 2012 may get this limitation.
According to the company, they have sent the notifications to all affected members informing them about the alternative devices they support so that users can enjoy Netflix without interruption.
So if you see your Netflix service does stops working by next month then probabaly you may be required to upgrade your hardware.
But wait.... what if you already have some alternative device at home?, for e.g. a laptop, a mobile or even a gaming console which will be compatible with Netflix's newer software update (or rather restriction), if this is the case then maybe you could try simply connecting the cable from your hardware console to tv (in this case though your tv must have a HDMI port), alternatively you can also mirror your phone wirelessly to the tv and could check if this workaround does works, incase if you prefer not to upgrade your device.
Do share your experience and let us know if there is some other alternative method to over this upcoming limitation.
