I struggled for years waiting and restarting Netflix on my "smart" TV. Sometimes I couldn't load at all. I kept thinking it was my internet speed which was never lower than 30mbps and is now a 100mbps plan. I stubbornly thought since I had a smart tv I was going to use it. My son got me a Roku a couple of years ago and I had it hooked up in my bedroom but never really used it. I finally got so frustrated that I thought I'd try the Roku. I was amazed. It loaded Netflix, VUDU and any other app instantly. I now have a Roku every place I have a TV, add apps, subscribed to Hulu and am generally completely sold on Roku.
