Netflix will stop working on some Samsung smart TVs next month due to & # 39; technical limitations & # 39; – since the company announces how to share a password
- Samsung smart TV users cannot stream Netflix programs
- The change will take effect on December 1
- Affected customers must use a console or set-top box to view Netflix
Some Samsung Smart TV users will no longer be able to stream Netflix from next month due to & # 39; technical limitations & # 39; on older models.
In a statement on his website – which now appears to have been removed – the technology giant announced that anyone with an older model who still wants to use Netflix should buy a compatible device.
Netflix has confirmed that its service is no longer supported on a small number of older devices due to technical limitations
& # 39; Due to technical limitations, Netflix will no longer be supported on some devices from December 1, 2019, the statement said The independent.
& # 39; Some older Samsung smart TV & # 39; s are affected by this change.
& # 39; In the future, Netflix can be viewed from many other devices that can connect to your TV. & # 39;
The statement did not specify which models would no longer be supported and Samsung did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The company has reportedly shared a list of Netflix compatible devices that can be used – but it appears that it has been deleted.
Allegedly these are Apple TV, Chromecast, game consoles and other set-top boxes.
& # 39; As long as you have one of the supported devices, such as a game console, streaming media player or set-top box, you can still watch Netflix on your TV, & # 39; said Samsung.

Netflix has confirmed the change by sending an e-mail to Cnet that & # 39; Netflix is no longer supported on a small number of older devices due to technical limitations.
& # 39; We have informed all involved members with more information about alternative devices that we support so that they can continue to enjoy Netflix undisturbed, according to the customer.
The announcement came after the streaming service revealed that it was looking for ways to limit password sharing.
In October, the company pointed to crackdown on passwords when Greg Peters, lead product manager, said it looked at the situation & # 39 ;.
