Troubleshoot your hardware connection

Your device may be experiencing an HDCP issue that is preventing Netflix from playing your content. To resolve the issue:

  1. Ensure that you are using an HDMI cable.

  2. Bypass any receivers or stereo equipment by connecting your device directly to your TV.

  3. Try reversing the ends of the HDMI cable.

  4. Try a new HDMI cable.

  5. Try another HDMI port on your TV.

  6. If available, try an HDMI port on another TV.

    • If you were able to stream on another TV, there may be an issue with the HDMI port on the original TV. Contact the TV manufacturer for further assistance.
