Apple AirPlay is dead to Netflix

War heats up as Netflix for iPhone stops supporting Apple Airplay Netflix’s iOS App No Longer Works With Apple AirPlay

This means now if you want to watch Netflix on the Apple TV or any AirPlay supported device you will need to use its native Netflix app. In December of past year, Netflix has banned its users to subscribe within the app for iOS, to avoid paying a Commission to Apple, and now refused to cooperate with the Apple TV+, preferring to remain a competitor.

Netflix, be that as it may, prevented that the drop from securing AirPlay support has anything to do with Apple developing as one of its rivals in the streaming space, Digital Trends wrote about Saturday.

Netflix has taken the decision due to a large number of third party devices supporting Airplay. You can still use Netflix on Apple TV as well as on Smart TVs. By this cut down that indicates Apple TV set-top box viewers can no longer cast Netflix, either.

Netflix confirmed to The Verge that it pulled the wireless casting feature this past week, due to what it's calling a "technical limitation". I'd absolutely want to know how many people stopped streaming Netflix via AirPlay because of the AirPlay-related quality issues that Netflix is referring to.

Apple has teamed up with major TV brands in order to allow AirPlay 2 to send shows right to their 2019 TV sets by making the most out of a firmware update.

As for now, what are your thoughts on Netflix's decision to remove AirPlay support from its iOS app? Netflix's argument is that Apple isn't giving sufficient information to the apps that initiate AirPlay streaming. The only thing it might be disrupting is the chance for a friend to stream something from Netflix to your Apple TV from their own account. In fact, Apple has been dealing with copyright licensing and DRM for longer than even Netflix has, so claiming not to trust Apple's enforcement of content protection would be rather petulant on the part of Netflix. AirPlay can still be switched on via the control panel on iOS, but users receive an error message when they use the function in combination with Netflix.

It's true that most smart TVs already have Netflix built-in these days, and there's no shortage of other ways to get that content on your TV screen.

With the support of AirPlay on other TVs, Netflix is unable to guarantee the app experience to ensure that the viewing quality are up to standards.
