Calling all Canadians to Speak up about TV Internet Apps

by thejones10 / October 5, 2010 8:53 AM PDT

We need Canadians to speak up to Samsung about delivering content equal to that of the United States. We now have NetFlix in Canada and that cannot be a surprise to Samsung yet they do not yet have it available on the 2010 TV's Internet&TV Applications. Why should I have to buy a new Blue Ray player to get it when I spend decent money on the latest TV's. Come On Guys, get it in gear!!

Isn't that up to Netflix?

Did you ask Neflix to fix this?

Perhaps a discussion for both parties.

If I was a leading TV manufacturer, I would want to ensure that the latest related content is available for my Televisions. I would make the point that I can buy a new Samsung Blue Ray player and it is supposed to have the ability to download NetFlix Streaming content. If it is on a Blue ray player, why not a more expensive TV.

Ultimately it's up to Netflix.

And the Canadian office and rules differ from other countries. While you can press Samsung, it's not up to them at the end of the day. It's Netflix and the CRTC.

That's 3 parties.

How can it work on a Blue Ray player? Are you saying that the CRTC is allowing it on a BRP but not TV. I do not pretend to know the answers but it cannot be rocket science

thejones10,

I don't have any information until it's announced.

Regions aren't always equal in terms of available services. That's not the fault of the manufacturers.

You guys can rally, and I'll be happy to pass it up. I don't mind the feedback, and I welcome the open expression and I'll even send it to one of my guys in the Canada offices. But let's keep it realistic. I've seen several conflicting claims so far, and the bottom line is that I'm not able to confirm anything for a region other than the U.S.

And even then I can't confirm things for the U.S. sometimes until they're officially announced...

Let's say it works on one but not the other.

The app is a Netflix app. Be sure to pester them as well.

And yes, you have a lot of players to complain to. I've seen folk go after one party and miss bending the ear of those that have a say.

And yes, I can't explain why the rules can change on CDR media since it's digital and there's a different tax on music CDR vs. plain CDR.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
