Netflix on 6000 series
Just before new year 2012, I bought a Smart TV, model 55PFL6097T/12. Picture quality is just perfect and so on. But, when it comes to installing preferable Smart TV apps via "App Gallery" this TV is just a big disappointment.
When it comes to movie/series apps, I find pre installed apps like Viaplay, Viewster, Headweb and so on..they are probably okay...but they are all apps that you have to pay for. As a registered customer on Netflix I do not want to join the above mentioned apps!
My TV do not find Netflix as an app!? My girlfriend have the same TV in the 46" size...same story there.
So, I tried to move around the problem using the pre installed "Internet" app on my TV and logged into my Netflix account from there. That worked for a wild, but suddenly it got veery slow, and everything just stopped completely after some time. I have a 25Mbit+ internet line (up and down via fiber cable) so speed is not an issue! Surfing on other web pages is not a problem. The software on my TV is the latest one "xxxxx.083".
I have searched around on this forum, and the only answer I can find regarding Netflix is generally:
"At this moment Netflix is not available on our sets.
Best regards, Benedickte"
End of January 2013 I bought the Philips Blue Ray Player BDP5500/12. This one has a WiFi connection, and from the "App Gallery" on this one I could search for, find and install Netflix?!
On my Blue Ray Player, Netflix worked great for a wild...but then bugs started to show up also here...??? The BRP thends to lock up in "Stand By" mode, and the only way to get it working again is to turn of the power!!! When I power up again, I am able to start Netflix, but then I get no sound...??? Also for the BRP I have the latest software installed (v3.53).
If I connect my laptop to the TV, log in to my Netflix account from there I have no problems at all!
None of my friends having Smart TV/BRP from Samsung/Sony/LG or Apple TV are having these issues regarding Netflix!
Does Philips (Norway) have a license issue regarding Netflix or something???
Hopefully you can give me (and other users) a good answer!
