I already pay over $200 a year and watch only a few shows here and there. If you jam ads down my throat for what little time each day I have to watch a movie or TV series, I'll just unsubscribe.
Wife and I just finished our annual watch of the show and a notification popped up that it won't be available starting October 1st.
You've got plenty of time to watch or rewatch 18 perfect episodes of TV. And if you haven't seen it holy shit go stream it now for real, it's incredibly popular for. good reason.
Forgive me if this has been posted before, but I have searched high and low for suggestions and possible fixes, and have hit a dead end.
A few months ago I got a 4K TV, and subscribed to Netflix (the Standard HD plan). All was good, and on my measly 4Mbps ADSL line, I could stream 1080p with no issue at all (took a minute or two to get there, but it was stable after that).
A couple of weeks later, I upgraded to the Premium plan. The thought of 4K / HDR on my TV was quite the motivator. That's when I suspect I started having issues. The line upgrade would come later, as fibre was being rolled out in my area.
From then on, the picture quality / resolution was pretty unstable. Apart from the usual low res start and the climb up to 1080p, it started doing a bit of a switcharoo once it hit 1080p. While watching the show, it would constantly switch anything from 144p to 1080p, everything and anything between, in either direction.
After a week or two of this frustration, I upgraded my ADSL line to 10Mbps. This made things worse. Now it was switching between 144p and 4k.
Fibre got rolled out to my area, so I figured I'd solve my problem with brute force. I now have a 40Mbps line. There is enough bandwidth there to meet the 4k streaming requirement, and then some. However, I still have this problem. It doesn't seem as bad. But it's there, and it's noticeable.
Some things which may or may not be relevant:
- I watch Netflix using the Netflix app on my Samsung TV (It's model is MU7351, but good luck finding any info on it)
- It feels like if I watch a 4k show, I have a good run for an episode (if I'm lucky). Exiting the app and restarting it seems to help if I want to carry on watching. Otherwise it seems to degrade quite badly.
- I have replicated the problem on my PS4, but it was a couple of weeks ago. The TV app is my primary source of watching.
- This problem seems to only affect 4K / HDR shows or movies. If I watch anything that only goes up to 1080p, not problems at all. This was the same when I had ADSL.
- I am the only one who uses my internet, and I have a firm grip on devices going AWOL and chewing up bandwidth. I can say with confidence that nothing is downloading in the background when this happens.
- I use a good ISP here, and they're pretty open with their shaping / throttling policies. While I won't rule it out (because if I'm honest, I don't quite know how to make 100% sure I'm correct), I don't think I'm being throttled or shaped here.
So yeah. I am stumped. If anyone has had a similar experience and has any tips, they would be most welcome!
The trailer for season two of American Vandal autoplays if you stop on it, and they show people sitting next to piles of convincing shit. Shit as in poop. I personally think it's ridiculous...some people don't have a problem with it. Either way, I don't think it's something that should be shown in a trailer without some sort of warning.
So, a long time overdue but I've got Netflix now - are there any classic anime series(either acclaimed, or classic period) that I should watch? looking for ALOT of content to watch/listen to as I do other things.
You can assume I haven't seen regular TV in 18 years for this exercise.
PS: Since Reddit can't stay on topic, Also looking for highly talked about tv series, movies, etc.

Has anyone else been having issues with this? I have subtitles enabled by default in my account settings, but no matter what show I watch, I have to go into the settings for the episode or the movie while it's playing to enable subtitles.
Do you grab something to eat & drink? Do you go to bed earlier? Do you spend the saved time studying? Or do you just want to be completely efficient and avoid anything, that‘s in your mind unnecessary. Like WHAT, is so important to skip a 10sec-2min intro? Like WHAT do you do with this saved time??? Was it so important for you to skip that? ????
I'm a Chromecast user and I'm considering upgrades for our home theater setup.
Netflix is an integral part of our home theater experience and if I'm going to invest in improvements, they need to be realized. As far as I can tell right now, Netflix doesn't support anything better than DD+ (at least, through a Chromecast.)
Can anyone confirm/deny and/or add any information? We have a Chromecast Ultra, which supports 4K, HDR and Dolby Vision (as well as Atmos and other advanced codecs), but the issue appears to be that Netflix doesn't pass along support when casting.
Been trying to watch Netflix on my laptop for the past couple of days but nothing seems to be working. I'm running windows 10 and I downloaded the app from the play store. It used to work fine but suddenly stopped. I don't think it's the internet because I've switched to my iPad/phone and it works perfectly, loads really quickly, etc.
I've tried restarting the computer, uninstalling and installing netflix, restarting my internet just in case...nothing seems to work. It doesn't even let me download the episodes to watch them offline.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
PS: Forgot to add it works perfectly on Chrome? So I don't really get what the problem with the app is, the thing is I wanna keep using the app because it's just easier. I thought it maybe had to do with ports but then I'm assuming it wouldn't work on Chrome either :/
hi, i noticed these past few days i was able to watch any movies however i want to hold my phone and it will auto rotate just fine theres a little rectangle option i could click on the lower right. but now its gone and i can only watch on my phone sideways. there seems to be no option for me to get it back in the settings. any help? thanks!
I've already finished Rick & Morty, my girlfriend has watched Adventure Time so this isn't an option as well. Unfortunately, we were not able to stick to Bojack Horseman.
Don't you have to fill out the name too? The prepaid card doesn't have a name on it tho lol. Does it matter what I put there or nah
I'll just continue rambling for a minute cause apparently there's a character limit which doesn't make sense what if someone has said all that they have to say what's the point of making people read more smh anyways that should be enough right?????
