Netflix Will Drop Its Support Of Many Older Roku Devices This December

Posted by at 4:40 pm on October 14, 2019

All technology eventually becomes obsolete and some Roku streaming devices are now so old that Netflix will no longer support them by the end of the year. Some Roku users have begun to receive notifications that their devices will no longer have access to the Netflix app starting on December 1st, 2019.

“Due to technical limitations, Netflix will no longer be available on this device after December 1st, 2019,” explains the error message, which Netflix has also shared on its Help Center website. “Please visit netflix.com/compatibledevices for a list of available devices [though the specific devices are not listed].”

Netflix and Roku have yet to release a detailed list of all the devices that will lose Netflix support on December 1st, but there’s an easy way to find out if your box is affected. Apparently, if your Netflix app is not capable of auto-playing the next episode in a TV series, it’s time for an upgrade.

The good news is that Roku’s current lineup of streaming players (all of which should support Netflix’s app for years to come) starts at $29.99, so even if you are forced to upgrade, you won’t have to break the bank.
