I use this on Android TV (nVidia Shield), and it's pretty bad. First, only 5.1 support is for Dolby Digital Plus, which my receiver doesn't support. Why is traditional DD not an option? Second, and even more annoyingly, Netflix doesn't participate in cross-app search the way Hulu, Play Movies, YouTube and other apps do. And even within Netflix, voice search isn't an option. Netflix's app looks like a dinosaur on Android TV. What makes this harder to stomach is that Roku and Apple TV both have Netflix support for cross-app search. Does Netflix just not WANT my business? This is discouraging and I'll unsubscribe if they don't update their apps to fully support the features of the system they are on.
sadly cant rate this -100, netflix and nexus player, JUNK JUNK JUNK netflix knows the issues has not pushed no updates since June??? WOW!! JUNK!!!!! reviewed 8/11/15 folks looking for nexus player STAY away from it far from prime time use, app developers are slow to push fixes as is google update 09/23/2015 since last netflix update and nexusplayer update the app is now 90% usuable 1. app crashes on start 2. few audio dropouts still, once or twice an hour vers conisitant dropouts 3. still no v. search function
I get the "It looks like Netflix has been deactivated on this device" on my Nexus player. Will update rating once Netflix fixes this problem.
Unreliable and frustrating to use. The app ALWAYS closes upon starting it for the first time and it won't function unless you trawl through the myriad settings and force close it, then try again. And then, just for fun, it will often stop streaming content for no apparent reason, but it won't sync where you got to before it does. So you have to try and re-start the app and then FAST FORWARD to where you roughly left off. Why must this be so painful to use?
September 3 update on Nexus Player running Android 6.0 (Marshmallow preview 3) results in Sorry, Netflix has stopped. You can't even open the app.
It works fine in Shield TV after OTA 2.0, just needs to add frame rate switching for 24p (23.976hz), also from time to time, the app starts to crash after loading and it keeps happening after it happens once, the only fix is to clear data and login again.
