I noticed that Samsung BluRay players will not show and find all of the Netflix movies, I did a search on the website on my PC and can find certain titles..the same search on the BDP does not find the same titles.
Streaming is working with Netflix for all players that I'm aware of. What model do you have, and which region are you inquiring from?
The movie selection is chosen exclusively by Netflix, and they determine which titles are stream only, and which are "disc at a time" selections. Not all movies are available, but that applies to all Netflix ready devices.
BDP 5500 in Canada
No sorry ..I have come across this more than once..movies are available and I can watch them on my PC...but search for the same title on the Samsung BRP and no luck. I called them and they admitted there was a problem.. That was in November. the problem still exists.
I think it's time Samsung and Netflix pulled up their socks..or at least quit advertising that their products are compatible....because they aren't.
I give up using by BRP and simply plug my laptop into the HDMI.
Experience this constantly, anyone who says they have no prob w/Samsung Bluray & netflix MUST be a samsung employee!
I too have the same problem with respect to the streaming.
Model Code: BD-D5500-ZA
Software Version: BSP-D5500ZA-1025.0
The problem is in the app. We have used this both wired and wirelessly, before the problem and now after the problem. It is constantly buffering, and dropping the connection to netflix. I am able to use netflix without issues on the Wii and computers.
samsung is the problem
My Panasonic bluray does not have the buffering problem but my Samsung does every time. We would appreciate it if Samsung would respect their customer's intelligence. Most are tech savvy and know what we are talking about. Reports of this problem goes back to over a year ago. Like someone else said, pull up your socks and fix this. You have lost a Samsung customer here. Also get Amazon onto a streaming agreement. It's ridiculous that Amazon Prime is not an option with Samsung.
Agree - samsung is the issue
I agree 100% that the netflix software on samsung bluray is an issue. I can watch netflix on my sony bluray player at all times without an issue. If i watch during prime time on either of my samsung blueray players it rebuffers every 5 minutes. The sony software is more elegantly designed IMO. One more plus, sony comes with software for the major services like vudu, hulu, but also includes AMAZON.
Samsung blue ray not streaming Netflix
I have a Samsung Bd-p1600 and since installing a firmware update yesterday I can't stream on Netflix. Samsung says its a Netflix issue and visa versa
And it could be other things too.
It's one of those issues where it can be both companies as well as our home network and our ISP.
Be sure not to tag older discussions as they may be out of date or about a fixed issue.
I have the same problem DAILY, new Samsung Bray & new Sam tv, will NEVER buy samsung again!!!!!!!!
SAMSUNG- BD-C-8500 BLUE RAY PLAYER
I have had this blue ray player since the last 2 years or so and I have always had problems streaming netflix or any app as for that matter. We thought it was the DSL internet that we had then. Recently we switched to comcast but the same problem persists. I didnt watch a lot of movies on Netflix but lately I have been watching old shows and the kids always complain that the internet has slowed down.
There have been numerous updates since then and I always thought well this update might do it but after reading this thread I think this was a faulty player to begin with. Should have dumped it long time ago!!
Now i have stream from PS3 and/or Xbox without any issues.
This was a bad product to begin with.
yes same problem
yes i have been unable to connect to netflix and the netflix help desk only say they are working to fix the problem.
Re: yes same problem
I'm very sorry to hear that has happened. In order for me to help you most accurately, please provide the complete model code for this device.
I have the same problem too
I finally signed up for Netflix and can't watch a movie uninterrupted for more than 5 minutes. My model code BD-E5700-ZA s/w code BSP-E5700WWB-1018.0, very frustrating.
