Netflix, this app is completely unusable on the Shield right now. See the Nvidia forums for many many complaints over the last few weeks. Like others, I am experiencing intermittent periods of buffering that last for 10 minutes or more. I have had to switch to other devices for Netflix. YouTube, Playstation Vue, and Amazon Video all work great on the Shield, it's just Netflix that is broken.
Good app, no problems whatsoever
I had an Apple TV and was happy with my Netflix experience. Now I have an Nvidia Shield (2017) and the Netflix app for Android TV is absolute trash. It buffers inexplicably during playback and for a long time before playback. When it's playing the video quality is terrible. I pay for 4K and HDR content but I get compressed garbage. Chromecasting from my iPhone directly to the TV works fantastic, the buffering is quick and the video quality is on par with what I expect from streamed 4K HDR content but the Android TV app is BROKEN. I don't want to switch input sources just for Netflix. My network is a Cat6 wired 1000 Mbit beast with no problems in any other streaming service and I use a plethora of them. Again, my TV (LG B6) handles Netflix better than a premium set-top box running Android TV. Fix this abomination.
Can't get past the login screen, the password field is broken. I've tried several different hardware and software methods. Trying to use the AndroidTV app to copy my password in, results in a jumble of duplicated characters that don't represent the original copy. Other apps are fine with the remote app. Certain special characters in the built in app keyboard don't seem to work - the character representation bullets don't increase when used and sometimes decrease(!) when tapping on characters. Above a certain amount of characters, inputing characters sometimes just doesn't register.
I have been trying to use this on my 4k tv and Mibox. Error code tvq-mp-100. I dont know who to blame for this but its getting a little ridiculous between Xiaomi and Netflix we cant get a fix out there. If only i could give No Stars!!!!
Doesn't play video on Mi Box 3 or any android box version with this version of Netflix installed. Hit play on a video, it looks like it's caching it. Then it errors with "We're having trouble playing this title right now. Please try again later or select a different title." (tvq-mp-100)
