I've bought two (2) roku products and none of them work with Netflix. The first was a roku stick. Every other channel worked perfectly (Hulu, Disney+, tubi, etc.) but not Netflix.
So I bought a roku express in the hopes that this device would be more capable of running Netflix.
Well, it didn't work either. Netflix will gets stuck and freezes while loading a promotional video that they always show upon start up.
Here's what I've done to try and fix this issue:
• Updated Software - My roku device has the latest update (11.5.0). And the Netflix app has the latest update too.
• Uninstalled and reinstalled roku.
• Checked and double checked my connection.
NONE OF THAT WORKED. Netflix still refuses to play on roku.
Again and I repeat: EVERY OTHER CHANNEL WORKS FLAWLESSLY USING THE SAME ROKU DEVICE AND CONNECTION.
So its not my connection or the roku device which is the problem. It clearly is the Netflix app which is poorly optimized to work with roku.
And I was wondering what practical solutions I have before I try a alternate device to watch Netflix on my TV (not roku because this will be my last attempt with it).
