Netflix app problem

Hi my Netflix app will only allow me watch a minute of any film/TV show I put on and then screen goes back to the now TV home page. At first I thought it was me I hit something on the remote so put the app back on (moved the remote away from reaching distance) and same again a minute watching then back to the now TV home page. 

Has anyone else had this issue before and if so have you resolved it and how??

Thank you

My Netflix on my now tv stick has always worked fine until tonight. I watch 10 minutes of an episode and then it cut off and restarted, I have tried it several times but still does it. Anyone got any idea of how to fix this? Thanks

No resolution as far as I’m aware. Just keep hearing about more people with the same problem. Reassuring to know it’s not just us with the issue.

Same here, the response from NowTv on this subject is deafening?? It can`t be that difficult to fix?? Suspect the latest build has a bug, so probably no fix until they get their asses in gear!!

We too are having issues with Netflix on the black Nowtv box. Click the app then it goes straight back to now tv menu. Netflix works fine on my mobile and sons xbox. When I phoned Netflix they said they want sure what was wrong, after all the "unplug and wait/restart/delete app and reinstall" advice..... They said they would investigate but don't hold much hope! Very frustrating-seems to be an issue with Now tv.

Hi there,

 

Our Netflix App has stopped working on Now TV. Every time we click onto it the app just returns back to the home page of NowTV

Having same problem on my NowTV stick. Netflix loads. Then after s minute or so just goes blank then goes back to NowTV front screen. 

Was working all ok upto a few days ago.  My Netflix works fine on all other devices. Luckily I still have the Netflix app on my TV so can use it that way. But bit miffed my nowtv box not working correctly.  As it's so much easier to just have it all under the one control and app.

Just unplugunp the nowtv stick from TV and power. Gave it s few seconds then reconnected it. All works ok again now.  So a simple reboot should fix this problem.

We are suffering with the same problem on our Now tv box.

Netflix was working ok at the weekend. Now when we click on the Netflix app , it tries to start, then the screen goes blue, then back to the My apps screen.

We have tried the old “ unplug and switch back on again”

We have checked for updates but our Now tv box says it is up to date.

Netflix works ok on all our other devices, laptops, tablets, smart tv.

We have contemplated deleting the app and reinstalling but can’t see what difference that would make.

Very frustrating

Hey, having the same issue as everyone else. Over the weekend Netflix was completely fine, come Monday morning as soon as I click on the app it goes to load but then returns to the homepage. I’ve removed the app and reinstalled. Factory reset my now tv box, unplugged etc etc. Also Netflix is fine on all other devices and also other family members now boxes who we’ve asked. Is there anything else I can try?
