Oh no! No movie streaming from Netflix on Apple TV!

Several customers were unable to stream movies to their devices. In relation to this, a spokesperson confirmed that a small number of TV devices were having technical issues. However, pointed that the has been fixed.

Users who were experiencing difficulties over the weekend received 111, 112 or 115 whenever they try to use the service. Nevertheless, access to menu screen is still possible. Meanwhile, other users were able to access Netflix on other non-Apple TV devices like iPhone, iPod and MacBook Pro. It also seems that majority of Apple TV 2 owners where encountering the glitch.

Netflix’s Apple TV downtime can pose a negative effect of Apple’s video-on-demand market. The glitch may also cause embarrassment to Apple TV, which is always being criticized for lack of movie offerings and technical capabilities. However, the Apple TV 2 was an overhaul of its predecessor, focusing on videos-on-demand. That said, those experiencing technical issues with Apple TV missed a bug chunk of its successor — movie streaming.

However, some users posted on MacRumor’s forum page that the issue was resolved after updating to of the Apple TV 2 software. Still, there were users who experience the same glitch after doing so, and update servers went on downtime recently.

    I’ve had buffering issues on the ATV2 for a while with Netflix. They need to fix it. It started once I updated to the latest iOS firmware update.

    We have been having issues streaming from Netflix on our Apple TV for about a week now.  Could you let me know how I go about doing the firmware update?
