Are you still clinging to a former Roku player to stream Netflix in the basement? You will need to update soon. Netflix warned that it will stop admitting some of Roku’s oldest players after December 1, including Roku HD, XR, XD, XDS, XDS and NetGear XDS and XDS.
You should receive an alert if it is affected, but Cord Cutters News added that a simple feature check would be enough sooner. If your Netflix application cannot automatically play the next episode of a series, you will have to move on.
This was not surprising when Roku himself announced in 2015 that he would stop updating the players created in May 2011 or earlier. These are vintage boxes that stopped receiving new material a long time ago.
It has probably evolved since then, by the way. The latest generation of Roku players starts at $ 30 and you probably already have a TV console or games with a modern Netflix application.
However, this could leave some viewers ashamed. Roku has long since stopped selling players with composite tickets and components. So you are not lucky if you want to watch Netflix on an old TV without HDMI. You may have no choice but to improve your set and your player at once.
