Netflix is suddenly reappearing on the Play Store for some previously banished modified devices

Friday, October 13th, 2017

This May, Netflix started blocking rooted and unlocked devices from downloading the company's app on Google Play. It was an unfortunate restriction that locked out many people and stirred up a lot of anger. Over the last week, some of us at AP have started noticing the app reappearing, even though our devices still don't pass SafetyNet/Google Play device certification.

Not all of us are seeing the Netflix app return. My own bootloader-unlocked Pixel XL still adamantly refuses to show the app listing, but Artem's is more than happy to oblige.

Tip: You can remove series from ‘Continue Watching’ on Netflix, but it’s harder than it should be

British English alternative title: You can remove series from 'Continue Watching' on Netflix, but it's a bit of a faff

If you've ever wanted to remove that show you accidentally clicked on from your 'Continue Watching' list on Netflix, then this is for you. Or maybe you watched something a little raunchy that you don't want your flatmates to know about. Either way, we didn't think it was possible before. Now we know it is.

Galaxy Tab S3 gets Netflix HDR support with new system update

Sunday, October 1st, 2017

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is one of the best Android tablets you can buy right now, for what that's worth. It will probably be a while before Android 8.0 Oreo reaches the tablet, but in the meantime, Samsung has pushed a minor update that enables HDR support for Netflix (among other things).

The update has a version number of 'T820XXU1AQ12/T820XAR1AQ12,' and clocks in at 257MB. Here is the full changelog:

  • A new Samsung Pass function ahs been added
  • HDR support for Netflix
  • Update for Samsung Keyboard
  • Changes to the preload type mean that Kids Mode can now be re-installed onto devices from which it had previous been removed.

T-Mobile ONE’s new “Netflix On Us” brings free Netflix to customers with two or more lines

Wednesday, September 6th, 2017

T-Mobile's Un-carrier Next event was today, and to our surprise, the announcement is actually pretty sweet. Thanks to "Netflix on Us," customers with two or more T-Mobile ONE lines can now get Netflix for absolutely nothing every month. This is an addition that I think everyone can get on board with.

It's pretty simple - starting September 12th, ONE customers with 2+ voice lines will be able to activate their free standard Netflix 2-screen subscription online.

In the past few months, Netflix has added HDR streaming support on a few devices including the Xperia XZ Premium and LG V30, and now two new phones announced in the past weeks have joined the fold: the Samsung Galaxy Note8 and the Sony Xperia XZ1.

The Note8 is the first Samsung device to be officially Netflix HDR compatible. The Galaxy S8 and S8+, despite having the required HDR displays, still haven't been officially green-lighted by Netflix to the dismay of many a user.

[Lame] Netflix places limits on how many times you can download certain content

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017

Netflix added download support for a large chunk of its library late last year, which is great. It was long overdue, but still a much appreciated addition. However, Netflix's downloading functionality comes with a nasty catch that many people have just recently started running into: some content can only be downloaded a certain number of times. The worst part is Netflix doesn't tell you about that until you're almost out of downloads.

Netflix was just the start: Google Play Console lets developers exclude app availability for devices that don’t pass SafetyNet

Thursday, May 18th, 2017

Last weekend, a huge turmoil swept the root-enthusiast Android community as it was discovered then confirmed that the Netflix app was being blocked from showing up in search results on the Play Store for rooted devices. At the time, Netflix said it was using Widevine to block unsupported devices, but that made no sense to us: the app was still functional if it was sideloaded, it was only not showing up as compatible in the Play Store.

Netflix confirms it is blocking rooted/unlocked devices, app itself is still working (for now)

Saturday, May 13th, 2017

Earlier today, Netflix started showing up as 'incompatible' on the Play Store for rooted and unlocked Android devices. However, the app itself continued to work fine, leading some (including myself) to think it could have been an accident. However, Netflix has now confirmed to us that blocking modified devices from downloading the app was intentional.

This is the full statement:

With our latest 5.0 release, we now fully rely on the Widevine DRM provided by Google; therefore, many devices that are not Google-certified or have been altered will no longer work with our latest app and those users will no longer see the Netflix app in the Play Store.
