Samsung has announced that Netflix will no longer be supported on some of its older smart TVs.

From 1 December, the Netflix app will no longer work on some 2010 and 2011 models due to “technical limitations”.

Seven older Roku streaming sticks will also no longer support Netflix from December, Roku told Digital Trends.

Netflix can be watched on smart TVs, set-top boxes, streaming media players and video consoles. Users can check if their devices are compatible here.

Samsung wrote on its support page: “Due to technical limitations, Netflix will no longer be supported on 2010 and 2011 TVs beginning on 1 December 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.”

Jim Martin, editor of tech reviews website Tech Advisor, says consumers should check whether any of the other devices they own can be used to access Netflix.

“It’s partly the price of being an early adopter,” he told the BBC. “Technology moves quite quickly and nothing lasts forever.”

He added that people who want to keep accessing streaming services on their existing smart TV could plug in a streaming stick.

Roku said the older streaming stick models that would no longer support Netflix included the Roku 2050X, Roku 2100X, Roku 2000C, Roku HD Player, Roku SD Player, Roku XR Player and Roku XD Player.
