Netflix ends support for some older Roku players on December 1st


By Jon Fingas, Engadget

Are you still hanging on to an early Roku player to stream Netflix in the basement? You'll need to upgrade soon. Netflix has warned that it's ending support for some of Roku's oldest players after December 1st, including the Roku HD, HD-XR, SD, XD and XDS as well as the NetGear-branded XD and XDS. You should get an alert if you're affected, but Cord Cutters Newsadded that a simple feature check will do before then. If your Netflix app can't auto-play the next episode in a series, you'll have to move on.

This wasn't surprising when Roku itself warned in 2015 that it would stop updating players made in May 2011 or earlier. These are vintage boxes that stopped receiving new material a long time ago. There's a good chance you've moved on since, for that matter. Roku's latest crop of players start at $30, and the odds are high that you already have a TV or game console with a modern Netflix app.

This could, however, leave some viewers in the lurch. Roku has long since stopped selling players with composite and component inputs, so you're out of luck if you want to watch Netflix on an old TV that doesn't have HDMI. You might not have much choice but to upgrade your set and player in one fell swoop.
