The Netflix service in general is worthy of 5 stars, but the app is a different story. Whenever I try to play a downloaded show on my Alcatel Idol 3 while on a plane, or elsewhere and not connected to the internet, I get the message, "Sorry, we could not reach the Netflix service. Please try again later. (-9)" The idea of a download is to watch while offline, but the app is trying to connect.
Movie wise there are lots of great films here. Would like to see a little more frequent updating and less "b" movies. Love that I can pause the PlayStation and turn on the phone and resume in seconds. As long as they prices stay the same I suppose I can accept having to pay an extra few bucks to watch out of US. Because Canadian selection is like a kick in the junk in comparison .
The Netflix app is pretty good, but there are a couple of simple features that I'd like to see implemented. The first one being a 10 second fast forward. Similar to the 30 second rewind. The other feature is to allow to read other's reviews about a specific movie or TV show. Currently you're only about to read reviews on the actual website and not on the app. It makes no sense. I'll give five stars even these get implemented. Thanks.
I love Netflix... for the most part, but as of now I am unable to download and save any of the movies and shows to my phone.. all of which is odd because when feature first came out I was able to and for some reason now I cannot. I have the latest update. I'll be happy to change my rating once this issue is resolved.
It randomly stops picking up my Chromecast and I have to uninstall and reinstall netflix for it to see my Chromecast again. That wouldn't be so bad except that apparently you're only allowed to download for offline viewing a couple times per episode or movie. So when you go back in after reinstalling to download your movie again it warns you that you can only download that title one more time. This had happened to me about 4 times.
I really rely on Netflix to bring me all the shows and movies. I was very pleased when they added the last unicorn. I love it when they add movies like that. Sadly they also remove a lot of my favorite movies. You know when you have the song of a specific movie stuck in your head. Then later you want to get home and watch that movie. Well it really sucks when you get home turn on netflix to find that movie. When BOOM your movie is gone from your watch list. I really hope Pocahontas returns soon.
