Some devices will cease getting support from Netflix in December. Specifically certain 2010 and 2011 model t.v.s will no longer be able to access the app. T.V.’s from Samsung, Panasonic, Vizio, and some Roku devices are among the known to be affected. The removal of the app from these is due to their outdated DRM implementations that either cannot, or will not, be updated from the manufacturers.
” [Updated 11/8/19] Netflix 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. “

This type of attrition is the unfortunate nature of aging smart devices. I’ve already seen one of our lower cost t.v.’s lose a number of functions in the three years we’ve owned it. It’s usually exciting when an app gets added but not so much when one is either downgraded or fully removed.
