Hi, this is my experience with the netflix app so far:

- Netflix unwantedly placed the app as first app in my smart apps list.

- I have no smartremote or mouse connected to the tv at the moment so this means I have to press the right arrow a few more times (there are other apps in there that I do not want) to get to those apps I do want to use

- In an effort te remove the netflix app I clicked the netflix icon, expecting options to remove it or to see the app.

- Instead of opening the app, I saw a LG screen saying the app needs to be updated. Strange, I never even installed it, so my thought on this is: If you are going to install an app on my tv without permission, then just do it right and make sure it works from the first time

- I got curious of all that throwing netflix in my face that i clicked update. I updated the app and openend it.

- There was a big screen telling me I have 1 free month of Netflix. After all that hassle to install it, I thought what the heck and decided to go for that free month to try out netflix

- I filled in my name, email etc (not so fun if you have just a tv remote!) so I could start to see what Netflix is all about

- On the last page, where I expected something like 'Launch Netflix now' instead it asked for my credit card number

 

-> This is where my experience ends, I never give my creditcard for anything that is supposed to be free.

 

So I would say: for me this was a horrible experience. But that is just me, you should write an honest review yourself if you have a netflix account and actually used this app. Maybe this is a great app, I just didn't got there.

The Netflix app did finally appear here in New Zealand, and Australia I believe a few days after Netflix officially began operating in the region.

 

Generally I have found the app to be pretty good, the ability to have multiple users/accounts is a bonus, and it does seem that if something is watched on one device it copies that across to the WebOS app as 'viewed content' etc.  It can be a little laggy, but I suspect that is more to do with the ISP than the app.  

 

Generally I would say it's a job well enough done, it works, it delivers content, and it synchronises between devices as you would want it to do.

      OLED65B8 webOS browser won't accept password for Amazon.com account.  Winows Chrome on desktop or Android phone both sign in normally.
      I have several other account sign-ins that do the same thing -- work on desktop but not on TV.  What's going on?

      Hello.. I want to install latest webos system version to my tv .. I think rooting it may help .. is there any guide or steps to follow to do that ? 
      Also I want to be able to rollback to my current version if the install with root failed due to drivers for example.

      After switching to a new modem, the "Netflix" button on the LGSmartTV remote will not connect to the app. (I cana get to Netflix via the cable box app, on same TV, or even Apple TV, but not the easy LG remote button.  NO FAQ suggestions seem to fix it.   What to do?
