Re: Netflix Crashing on Roku and TV not responding 2024

Thank you, @KeithN for this information. I thought it was Roku, but maybe I'm wrong. I'll try talking to Netflix. However, I can predict what they'll say. ("Uninstall the Netflix app, then reinstall it.") Yes, that works, but that shouldn't be necessary. It seems more like a memory leak in the application.

Don’t bother, just get a new TV avoid Hisense Roku. I have 3 TVs two of which are LG brand not one time did Netflix crash, but Hisense crashes all the time. I’m done with this cheap brand.

Re: Netflix Crashing on Roku and TV not responding 2024

I dont know if i found the solution? But i have a Roku tv 43”. Read on Reddit to update your phone app Example:  iOS or android remote phone app for Roku. I didnt have that so I just downloaded the remote Roku app, messed around with the app for a little bit. And clicked on Netflix app and it worked, smoothly. I hope this helps anyone else. Or it could be a temporary fix. ❤️

Re: Netflix Crashing on Roku and TV not responding 2024

This has been happening for too long. I have two Roku tvs and it’s happens on them both no matter what I try. Actually all the streaming channel options on my Roku have all gotten so glitchy and laggy that I use my Xbox to watch everything at this point. Netflix is the absolute worst about it, though. I can’t get through 5 minutes of a show before it crashes. And sometimes it crashes while im just searching for something.  The Netflix Roku app is pretty much completely unusable. 
I’ve made a new Roku account, factory reset, cleared cache, system restarted, deleted Netflix and reinstalled and absolutely nothing has worked. It’s ridiculous that it’s been a problem for so long with so many complaints and they’ve done absolutely nothing to fix it.

Re: Netflix Crashing on Roku and TV not responding 2024

Agree, just trying to watch something this afternoon on Netflix and it’s crashed 3X. And same as my brother, Netflix and Roku crashes. Definitely makes me not want to buy Roku in future and will be purchasing a fire stick instead as beyond frustrated as by now this issue should be fixed. It’s not the users it’s something to do with Roku and Netflix and don’t seem to be trying to fix on their end even with all the comments.

Re: Netflix Crashing on Roku and TV not responding 2024

Agree. I've been experiencing this for a couple years. No resolution and we're tired of getting numerous emails about it week after week with no action. Going to look at a different TV or something. This is ridiculous.
