Roku and Netflix

Using my brand new Roku Ultra and Netflix plays for 10 seconds then goes back to home page, ive tried everything from taking the app off and reinstalling it to resetting up the roku and nothing works. My Roku in the other room works fine, im at a loss, do i take it back and get an apple tv or what?

Re: Roku and Netflix

Be sure to reboot the Roku after deleting the channel and before re-adding it.

Re: Roku and Netflix

AFAIK Netflix is completely broken on RokuTV but fine on standalone devices. All the deleting/rebooting/readding app handwaving does nothing. I read v8 should fix it but my TCL still says that 7.7 is the latest version available. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Re: Roku and Netflix

I have no issues with Netflix on my Sharp Roku TV either. I too am still on 7.7. Was using Netflix just yesterday. Although to be honest I'm thinking of dropping them. Annoyances like the auto-preview function, plus they just have less and less I want to watch. I haven't had any interest in any of their original programming, and that's the direction they are moving.

Yes I agree, the Netflix app is full of annoyances:


1) Auto preview, you can't even stop scrolling through titles without it playing preview videos with sound in the background.

2) Auto playback, you can't click on a title and read it's description before it starts playing the movie or episode in the background even though you have not chosen to press "Play" yet yourself.

3) You start a video and the player controls pop up and cover the screen for 3 seconds for no reason.

4) Now "Skip Recap" and "Skip Intro" buttons appear over videos with no option to disable.

5) Shrinking end credits to a tiny window and suggestions in your face of other things to watch also without an option to disable.


All of these things combine to make Netflix utterly annoying and useless, I miss the primitive Netflix app that just let you scroll and play videos without annoyances and interference with the videos.

Re: Roku and Netflix

Funny how these simple question threads turn into "I hate Netflix" threads...

You people know this isn't a Netflix forum, right?
