Roku Premiere Netflix app - some shows not working

Jump to solution

Hello! Since a week ago (1/19/2022) all of our Roku devices (premiere+ 4k and roku stick) only plays some shows/movies on the Netflix app. The either just spin a 0% or go up to 25% and stay there. I can view the shows/movies that do not work through my computer's browser just fine. The Rokus and the computer are on the same network.

What I have tried:

Unplug the Roku devices, waited 1 min, plugged back in, waited a minute once on the home screen and then tried to play a show on Netflix. - Does not work.

Delete the Netflix app, Unplug the Roku devices, waited 1 min, plugged back in, waited a minute once on the home screen, added the Netflix app, logged in and tried to play a show on Netflix. - Does not work.

Tried resetting my router - Does not work.

Tried connecting directly to my modem to see if the router was filtering anything. - Does not work.

Anything else I can try? The last Netflix update was on Dec. 8 (5.0.98079428) and the last Roku update was on Dec. 10 (Software 10.5.0 build 4208-91) and it says it's up to date.

Seems like that app is the issue, but I cannot find any notices on the web about this.

Any help is appreciated!

Sadly the issue is not resolved. Here is the information you requested:

Model: 3921RW - Roku Premiere+

Serial Number: YH00D8275734

Software Version: 10.5.0 - Build 4208-91

Device ID: JG289D275734

The issue appears to only occur with Netflix. Either the show will not load (spins at 0%) or loads to 25% as in the picture and spins.

I am having the same issue with Netflix. Also Hulu and Amazon don’t work. Disney+ is the only app that has been working over the last 4-5 days.

Nothing a user can do to fix this. Neither roku nor Netflix will take responsibility.    Hours on roku messing with a rep and he just left the chat

I see this was an issue several months ago and we have been currently experiencing the same issue— Netflix freezes within a couple minutes of starting a show and will not play further. This happens ONLY ON THE ROKU. 
I saw a note saying that this was resolved but it clearly has not been.
