If you experience the error code 1011, it's typically caused by an issue with the Netflix app, or a connectivity issue. In some cases, this error code may be accompanied by the following error message:
There is a problem connecting to Netflix. Please try again later (1011).
Follow the troubleshooting steps for your device below to resolve the issue.
If possible, connect your device to a different internet access point, then try Netflix again. Some examples:
Attempt to connect to a different Wi-Fi network in range of your device.
Bring your device to a neighbor's or friend's house and attempt to stream.
If you have the ability to connect to a mobile hotspot from your device, try using it to connect to Netflix. While we generally don't advise streaming over a data network as a fix, it's a good way to see if a home network configuration issue is what's keeping you from streaming reliably.
If you're able to stream using a different internet connection, we recommend checking with whoever set up your home network to resolve any potential issues with the way the network is configured.
If you're attempting to stream on a work or school network, or public Wi-Fi, talk with the network's administrator to make sure it supports streaming services such as Netflix. If it does not, you will not be able to stream Netflix TV shows or movies.
Open the Netflix app.
Select the menu icon.
Within the Diagnostics section, select Network.
Select Start Test.
If your connection test was unsuccessful, you'll want to reach out to the manufacturer for assistance connecting your device to the internet.
Simply try another internet-based app.
If other apps are not working either, you'll want to reach out to the manufacturer for assistance connecting your device to the internet.
Restart your device
If your device is connected to the internet but you are still getting the error, turn your device completely off, then turn it back on.
Try a different network
Try connecting your device to another internet source - a cellular data network, a wireless network, or a different wireless network than the one you're currently connected to.
If you are still having trouble or have any questions about these steps, visit your device manufacturer's support site or your cellular carrier's support site for more help.
You can test your device's connection to the internet by attempting to visit a webpage, such as netflix.com.
If Safari says it cannot open the page because your device is not connected to the internet, you may be experiencing a connectivity issue that will require troubleshooting your home network or your device's connection to the internet. See Apple's support site for more help.
Once you're connected to the internet, try Netflix again.
