New Apple TV - Netflix constant crashing

Anyone else encounter this? New 4th gen Apple TV, when watching Netflix, app crashes back to home screen every few minutes. I also tried a number of different shows on Netflix and all exhibit the crashing. Hulu, HBO, BBC news, etc, all work without issue. I have even done the full factory reset and re-downloaded the OS and apps. Netflix still won't play nice. Netflix on my blu-Ray player streams fine as does Netflix on my iPad, all on the same network. Any thoughts?

no experience with ATV4, but I did try ATV3 which I bought specifically for HBO Now, and after watching 3-4 episodes just fine, it started buffering a lot. I tried on my laptop and it buffered a lot. It may or may hont have been Comcast throttling HBO Now. I ordered a new ATV3 (exchange) but luckily HBO Now became available on Roku and I started using Roku and it never buffered, not even once. I send ATV back to Amazon.

Roku is far from perfect, but ATV3 was even farther away from my point of view.

Odd. We have an ATV4 and a Roku3, both work fine for streaming Netflix (though the ATV4 is quite a bit faster).

No issues with ATV4 and Netflix here either other than the weird interface. It's very confusing how to pause a show anymore which seems like a weird thing to screw up.

Wow, is it that bad?

With the ATV3 pressing the select button paused video playback but with the ATV4 I have not figured out a way to pause playback. I end up exiting out of the video and then pressing resume. It is also very confusing how to see the time remaining in a show. Extra things keep popping up on the screen and again I have to exit playback and resume. Overall I can't say I'm too thrilled with the ATV4 and I could not recommend it. My wife can't figure it out either and she gets pretty angry which doesn't make my life any easier.

This doesn't work?
