Netflix is Ending Support For Older Vizio Smart TVs

Netflix LogoThis week Netflix started to notify older Vizio TV owners that their Vizio Smart TV will lose access to Netflix beginning December 1st, 2019. Netflix has not posted a full list of which Vizio Smart TVs are losing support on December 1st, but it seems to be Vizio Smart TVs that are four years old or older.

How can you tell if you are on an older Vizio TV that will lose access to Netflix? If your Vizio Smart TV is losing Netflix at the start of December 1st, 2019, you should see a popup warning when you launch Netflix on your Vizio Smart TV.

According to Netflix, this change is caused by “technical limitations.” No word on if this will include Vizio Blu-ray Players as Netflix’s website still lists Vizio TVs and Blu-ray players on their website without listing what models are supported.

This news comes as Netflix has also announced older Roku players will be losing support for Netflix on December 1st, 2019. According to Roku, this only affects the 1st two generations of Roku Players made in 2011 and earlier.
