Netflix vs System Update 4.46

5 replies 1167 views Edited Jun 28, 2013

The new Playstation system update (4.46) has interfered with Netflix's 2nd Screen service; in which the user is able to use his/her mobile device to remotely control the Netflix app on the PS3. Can we get this problem sent up the river to SONY to have them remedy this problem so we can enjoy the streaming service of Netflix by way of my PS.

Yes.I hope they take care of it very soon. It is a very useful feature. Talked to Netflix yesterday and they did not know about the problem, they referred to playstation.

Unlikely.  The Second Screen allows you to control Netflix on your PS3 with your smartphone/tablet, it has nothing to do with your PS3's ability to connect to Netflix.

 

As for the second screen...  I've not been able to get it to work between my iPhone and PS3 at all.  Netflix is running on both devices (freshly re-installed and logged in on both), and hitting a play button on my iPhone just starts playing on my iPhone straight away.  It does not ask me where I would like to play the movie.

The second screen was feature since it allowed ps3 netflix to be Controlled from smart phone. Also it was Nice to be able to transfer the video between ps3 and smartphone especially when you would leave the room you were watching netflix but still wanted to watch the video. I hope that they will fix it soon.

Same here. I was using the Netflix Second Screen With both my Samsung Galaxy S3 and my iPad2 and wife's iPhone 4 and iPad3 and after this last update it no longer works. I tried to uninstall the Netflix app from all devices including PS3 and reinstalling and it simply won't work. That was an awesome feature while it lasted. Please fix.
