Netflix Crashing on Roku and TV not responding 2024

It’s 2024, and Netflix still crashes on Roku with the latest updated software (for Roku and Netflix). I am unable to resolve the issue and a bit frustrated about it.

Re: Netflix Crashing on Roku and TV not responding 2024

A warm welcome here in the Roku Community, @ikamlapurkar!

It is highly appreciated that you have reached out to us for support and we sincerely regret to hear about the inconvenience and trouble this may have caused. 

Before we proceed, are there any error messages prompted when trying to access the Netflix app? Also, do you have an active subscription to the app? If so, is it directly from the app or under Roku?

In the meantime, kindly try to troubleshoot the app by following the steps below:

  • Remove app: navigate to your Home screen, move to the right, highlight the app, press Star*, then select Remove channel
  • Perform a system reboot: navigate to your Home, select Settings > System > Power (skip if unavailable) > System restart
  • Re-install the app: navigate to your Home, scroll and select Store, look for the app, then press Add channel

You can also try to update the app by highlighting it and pressing the star* button on your remote. 

Let us know how it goes and we'll continue assisting you from there. Hope this helps!

Happy Streaming,
Carly

Hi, @Aschatz @ikamlapurkar

Thanks for letting us know about this.

May we know if you've already tried performing a restart of your modem/router? Also, what specific Roku device you are having issues with? Further, what specific issue does Netflix exhibit? 

We look forward to hearing back from you.

All the best,
Kash

Plus it’s not just my TV, my sister’s Toku TV does the same, and we are in two different geographical locations.

Just like the others stated, this is a debilitating issue. I've actually taken to streaming through the app on my android to a chromecast plugged in HDMi port. What does the app do? Freezes completely, freezes image while audio plays, refuse to load.... SOME of the problems
