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.

      Short answer: Something on my network is causing the crashes.
      I had an extra router, so I put it between my network and the TV.  
      Netflix no longer crashes, and other apps no longer give me the dreaded, "This app will now restart to free up more memory" error.
       
      Longer answer: Netflix would regularly crash out to Live TV after 20-40 minutes of play. I've been on LG support with this for months. They've replaced the main board twice, and took it off-site where the problem could not be replicated.
      I reset the TV and connected it to my smart phone data plan (luckily just upgraded to 10 GB). No crashes. Put the TV back on my network, crashed after half an hour.
      I took the network cable out of the TV and plugged it into a spare WiFi router. This creates a small network of only one device (the TV). I no longer get crashes. 
      Unfortunately, this kills local network features like DLNA/Plex streaming and wireless display mirroring, but all Internet apps like Netflix and YouTube work flawlessly.
      I plan to narrow down which device(s) on my network is the cause of the crashes, but after 10 months of fighting this I'm just going to enjoy some 4K streaming for a while. If I learn anything new, I'll post it here.

      Hello,
      I've got LG 42LB650V-ZN webOS 1.4.0-2525. 
      Till yesterday Netflix worked perfectly but now I can only start any video from beginning. When I try to continue watching previously paused video or try to move forward, than I recieve an Error:
      "We're having trouble playing this title right now. Please try again later or select a different title" tvq-pm-100
      I've already tried restarting Tv, signing out and in, reinstalling Netflix, unplugging cables, restarting router without any effect.
      I hope someone know what to do.
      Thank you

      Three weeks now I can't view Netflix (UK). I have asked my broadband supplier  Virgin to reset DNS(they say they have done it but how does one check that), I've reinstalled the app a few times now, reset the hub, factory reset the TV, which is directly connected to the hub.  No change after all that.  Everything else works well.
      What can I do now?
