- Netflix samsung smart TV
It’s a firmware issue with your TV. I had exactly the same problem with my Samsung TV. The firmware thinks it’s up to date and won’t check on-line for newer versions.
The only way around it is to update the firmware manually using a USB stick via the port on the back of your TV. You can download the firmware from the Samsung website using the TV’s serial number. It seems to be quite a common issue, but pretty easy to sort out.
After I did this I got all the new apps, including Netflix.Posted 4 years agosharkbaitMember
We have a Samsung ‘smart’ TV with loads of [pointless] apps (inc Netflix that doesn’t work) and the only thing we use on it is iPlayer.
In my experience your better off having your streaming requirements provided by an add-on piece of hardware (so xbox, playstation, AppleTV, Raspberry Pi, etc running XBMC.).
Much better compatability, support, updates and a design that works (for example the Samsung media streamer will play movies off a network drive/usb stick but there is no FF or FR capability, wtf?)Posted 4 years agogravity-slaveMember
I got a Chromecast from the US for £19. Great bit of kit for Netflix, YouTube and play content. Should be available in the UK next week.
Had a problem on my Panasonic Viera not being able to sign in to Netflix. The answer was to set it to use the Google DNS server.Posted 4 years agoAlphabetSubscriber
I’ve updated the firmware from usb and still can’t get Netflix. It just isn’t in the apps list (that I can find). Previously I’ve tried changing the telly’s DNS settings to USA and although I did get the Netflix app it wouldn’t let me log in. I haven’t tried since updating the firmware though. My telly is a UE40D5520RK.
So I’ll be looking into some kind of xbmc or similar device to save having to hook up my laptop every time I want to watch Netflix on the big screen.Posted 4 years ago
