Netflix is Ending Support For Some Older Blu-ray Players, Game Systems, Smart TVs, & More





Cord cutting is continuing to grow from its early days, but some early streaming players are starting to show their ages. Back in 2007, Netflix started to stream movies and TV shows online, which means the earliest devices that supported Netflix streaming are now almost 16 years old. Now as these devices show their age, Netflix has quietly started to drop support for older Blu-ray players, game systems, smart TVs, and more. This was first spotted on Reddit and confirmed by Whats On Netflix.

If you own one of these devices later this week, Netflix will stop working. According to the Netflix help page in the warning, this news “means Netflix is no longer available, or will no longer be available on your device. You can still enjoy Netflix on many TVs and streaming devices as well as phones, tablets, and computers.”

The good news is there are many great options to watch Netflix on cheaper streaming players, including the Roku Express, Fire TV Stick, and more. All of these players will give you a ton of options to watch your favorite Netflix programs for years to come.

Most current gaming systems and smart TVs all support Netflix. It is possible that you already own some other device that will let you continue to stream Netflix without issue.

If your device is impacted by this, you will know by the warning message that will show up every time you start your Netflix app. If your device is not a part of this news, you will know by not seeing a warning message when you open the app.
