What happened?


Downloaded this app a few weeks ago and it worked FABULOUSLY! Hence, my original rating of 5 stars.
This past week it’s been all about “Whoops, something went wrong…” unexpected errors, asking me to reload the page and try again. 😢
Nothing at all will play in the app, and this app was so awesome that I now have absolutely no interest in going back to watching things in a browser window.
I’ll happily restore my higher rating once the issue sorts itself out, but a non-functioning app (even one previously deemed wonderful) deserves no more than two stars. Please fix! 🙏🏼

Edit: I believe that the errors may only be occurring on things I’ve asked to “resume” (as opposed to beginning something anew), as I’ve just tried loading something unseen and it’s actually playing fine. Therefore, I’ll change my rating to three stars for the time being. I love the app, but hate that it won’t allow me to finish things later.

Completely Addicted TO Netflix!!

Support Group $ Netfix Addicts

Once I down loaded the Netflix App I was completely addicted! It’s very user friendly and the selection of movies, documentaries and comedy shows are endless. Since my husband works for a cable company we get all the premier channels (HBO, SHOWTIME, Cinemax, etc) but since I got Netflix I rarely watch cable anymore!!

UNfriendly for Netflix


I’m not able to use this app at all. It opened to a Netflix log in screen but when I entered my stepfather’s details as I have a subaccount under him, it wanted me to register a new account that apparently wasn’t free. It sent me to a screen that wanted me to create a password and contained a caption underneath about starting a free month. If this is genuine it’s senseless. One shouldn’t have to register a paid account with an app that required the use of an existing paid account with another service.
