If you already considered changing television, this is a good time. If you are someone who likes to watch streaming content from a larger screen than laptops or mobile devices, this information interests you. As of December, Netflix will stop working on some smart TVs due to measures that seek to eradicate password sharing.
According to NTN24, the main brands that will suffer restrictions are the following:
- Toshiba The affected televisions respond to the reference models BDK21KU, BDX2150KU, BDX2200KU, BDX2250KU, BDX2500KU, BDX2700KU, BDX3000KU, BDX4150KU, BDX4200KU and BDX5200KU.
- Samsung Smart TVs of 2010 and 2011, whose code contains a “C” or a “D” next to the screen size, will not be able to access the Netflix app.
- Sony This technology company announced that dozens of 2009-2011 models will no longer have that streaming server.
Other brands marked by the red “N” are Roku (2008-2011 models) and Vizio (teams launched before 2012). Even some Blu-Ray players are blacklisted, as can be seen in the Sony release. At the moment, no video game console is affected.
A few weeks ago, Netflix highlighted the success of the application in India, thanks to a cheap subscription method that only allows access to the catalog from mobile devices. Gregory K. Peters, company executive, put on the table the possibility of expanding this modality to other countries.
Then, while at the end of October the role of smartphones and tablets was cheered for the consumption of its content, now the king of streaming imposes limits on televisions and video players. Is anyone taking sides around the different technical means of consumption?
