Spiffy.... Time for an Apple TV...

"Due to technical limitations, Netflix will no longer be supported on 2010 and 2011 TVs beginning on December 1st, 2019. If you have one of the affected models, you may see a message on your TV indicating that Netflix will no longer be available on this device. You'll still be able to watch Netflix on your TV by connecting another device with Netflix on it."

A lot of early smart TVs are having this issue. The CPU's aren't fast enough to implement all the features.

The only important feature is playing a video file. The rest is crap.

Given the lifespan of modern electronics, I wonder how many 2010-11 flat screens are still in use.

May I remind you to turn off internet access for the TV. One never knows which side of Nielsen will end up with your TV after the split...

My 2008 50" Panasonic Plasma Space Heater TV is still chugging along. No need to worry about it's 11 year old smart features. It has none! Got an AppleTV for that. Or if I'm lazy (which is most nights) I'll use the smart features on the cable box remote.

The rest (metadata collection) is at the very core of Netflix's business model.

If the app is too old to report back efficiently on you, it's costing Netflix money.

....they make you upgrade TV....and make the TVs 'disposable'......even if you don't upgrade the TV, you will have to update the device (whether it is Roku, Apple TV, etc).......

With the vast amount of Netflix password "borrowing" going on, the least one can do is throw some metadata their way. secret smiley

I got my LG flatscreen and BluRay player in 2010, still going strong. But the Netflix app on the BluRay went to being unable to use about 2 years ago.
