Netflix on Smart TV

I recently bought a Panasonic 55" Class SMART VIERA® 1080p 120Hz LED Edge Lit HDTV. It is connected to the Internet through my wireless router. However, whenever I try to use Netflix, it starts to load, the progress bar comes on the screen for a short time, and then it inexplicably exits. No idea why. Anyone have any ideas?

Answer
This is a widely discussed issue with all smart tvs.

You call it in and if they don't fix it, you have a warranty issue. Then you decide to keep it or return it.

Latest Firmware?

Checked for firmware updates for the TV?

Try a wired connection too

FWIW, I ran a simple ethernet cable to the next room where my parent's HDTV is located. Made a huge difference. Rock solid now.

But it's also possible that there's more involved. You probably should give more specifics about what you've tested thus far. Example- what if you try to stream the same Netflix content w/ your PC/laptop? Does it work there on the same network?
