Some Samsung smart TVs and Roku streaming devices will no longer be able to stream Netflix from December 1.

“We have notified all impacted members with more information about alternative devices we support so they can keep enjoying Netflix uninterrupted,” the company said in a statement recently.

Users won’t be able to stream the service on old Roku sticks — 2050X, 2100X, 2000C, HD Player, SD Player, XR Player and XD Player.

The 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, ladbible.com reported.
