I get a connection failed error on my Android device.

Android Error Connection Failed

If you experience the error "Connection failed. If you want to retry, please select the retry button. If you want to exit the application, please select the Exit button" immediately or intermittently after opening the app, this is typically due to a connection error. Follow the steps below to resolve.

Test your internet connection

  1. Open the Netflix application.
  2. Select the menu icon.
    Note: Some Android devices have a menu button on the actual device, other devices have an icon you can select within the Netflix application.
  3. Select About.
  4. Within the Diagnostics section, select Network.
  5. 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.

OR

Simply try another Internet based application.

If other applications 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.
