  • Netflix will no longer support Apple TV 2nd and 3rd generations after July 31, 2024.
  • Users need to upgrade their Apple TV or switch to a compatible smart TV to continue streaming.
  • Updating your device’s software can help maintain access to Netflix.

Netflix has announced it will stop supporting the 2nd and 3rd generation Apple TVs starting July 31, 2024. This move is intended to maintain the best possible Netflix experience for users. Apple has already classified these older models as “obsolete,” ceasing support for them seven years after discontinuing their sale.

To continue streaming Netflix after this date, users will need to upgrade their Apple TV to a newer model or switch to a compatible smart TV from brands like Samsung, LG, Sony, and others. Netflix has also ended support for older TVs from Samsung and Vizio.

If you see a message saying, “Please update your device. This version is no longer supported by Netflix,” you can update your Apple TV software by going to Settings > System > Software Updates, and selecting “Update Software” followed by “Download and Install.” This can help maintain access to Netflix for as long as possible.
