TorontoColin On some smart TVs, the Netflix interface is basically just an HTML5 web app that Netflix controls. In those cases, Netflix can make changes themselves for many TVs/platforms at once, without having to spend resources on a thousand different apps for 250 end users each.

If it's a proprietary app on the TV, then it's pretty well hopeless.

BGY11 ^It probably won't. There's no incentive for manufacturers to support their Smart TV platforms for more than a couple of years. It's the same thing with apps like YouTube - eventually there won't be any more updates and it will simply cease to work.

That's why it's always better to get a separate media box (Roku, Apple TV, nVidia Shield, etc). Cheaper than a new TV, and they also tend to get updates for longer.

jeffaustin90 Hopefully it'll update on my 2012 Samsung Smart TV. We've had the same interfere for 5+ years now and it doesn't even allow you the option to change profiles.

Phils I recently noticed the change on my Roku also.

Netflix User Interface Changed (Apple TV 4K)

Noticed a sidebar menu late tonight. Not sure what to think. I liked the old UI.
Unrelated and confusing, the Apple TV App is suggesting hockey games on TSN and a few French and CITY tv series. Interesting.

See Netflix's overhauled Apple TV interface brings handy shortcuts to a sidebar menu
