Netflix Will Stop Working On Some Smart TVs This Weekend
Some Roku streaming devices and Samsung smart TVs won't be able to stream Netflix from this weekend.
According to the streaming service, some of Samsung's 2010 and 2011 smart TVs won't be supported from 1 December.
Te company claims that it's down to 'technical limitations' and has said that only a small number of people will be affected - and they have already been notified.
It said: "We've notified all impacted members with more information about alternative devices we support so they can keep enjoying Netflix uninterrupted."
The news has been confirmed by Samsung, who said that it will only affect models sold in Canada and the US.
Samsung said: "Consumers with these select models will see a notification from Netflix informing them of this change when they open the app on their Smart TV.
"For consumers with these models, there are still many other devices supported by Netflix that can be connected to a Smart TV in order to access the app. As long as you have one of the supported devices, like a game console, streaming media player, or set-top box, you'll still be able to watch Netflix on your TV."
However, the statement did not clarify exactly which models won't be supported any more- a list of supported devices can be found at netflix.com/compatibledevices.
Seven older Roku streaming stick models won't be supported after this month.

You are also able to use Netflix on other devices like laptops and games consoles.
If you're still able to use Netflix as usual, then this weekend is the perfect chance to sit down and watch The Irishman.
Still ranking at an incredible 8.5 out of 10 on IMDB, the Scorsese movie has truly lived up to the hype that surrounded it after it landed on Netflix this week.
If you didn't know though - it's a pretty heavy three hours and a half long.
If you're sitting down with a takeaway this weekend though, a long stretch of mob warfare might be a bit much.
Someone on Twitter watched Scorsese's latest release, and for anyone who feels like they would prefer to watch it in chunks, helpfully knocked up a graphic to explain how to watch it as a miniseries.
Spoilers lie ahead, LADs - beware.
The Irishman is available to stream on Netflix now
