By December 1st (or 2nd), the ability to stream Netflix will be lost to a number of old Samsung and Vizio smart TV models, and first-generation Roku boxes.
The old models that does not allow Netflix access includes 2010 and 2011 range of Samsung TVs, four-year-old or older Vizio TVs, Roku players like Roku 2050X, Roku 2100X, Roku 2000C, Roku HD Player, Roku SD Player, Roku XR Player and Roku XD Player.
You will either need to purchase a new streaming box or replace your old one with a newer model, if you still use one of those products as of 1 December.
Next time you start up the Netflix app, the pop-up alert that Netflix will end on December 1 will be shown.
According to Netflix’s comment, “On December 2nd, Netflix will no longer be supported on a small number of older devices due to technical limitations. We’ve notified all impacted members with more information about alternative devices we support so they can keep enjoying Netflix uninterrupted.
Samsung’s U.S. website says:
“They has announced that due to technical limitations, as of December 2, 2019, the Netflix streaming service will no longer be supported on several consumer electronics devices, including some from Samsung. This change will impact select 2010 and 2011 Samsung Smart TV models that were sold in the U.S. and Canada. Affected devices will receive a notification reflecting this change.”
