Netflix’s iOS App No Longer Works With Apple AirPlay

Netflix removes Apple Air Play support from its iPhone and iPad apps War heats up as Netflix for iPhone stops supporting Apple Airplay

As the story goes, the decision to discontinue the feature on iOS apps for both devices was due to "technical limitations".

Netflix has already made it clear it wants nothing to do with Apple's TV.app one-stop viewing spot or the upcoming Channels feature where people can subscribe to additional services from within the same interface as Apple's own, also upcoming, TV+.

Thus there is some suspicion that Netflix is retaliating against Apple, which is launching a streaming service that includes deals with many major competitors, not including Netflix. This means that you won't be able to AirPlay content from the Netflix app on your iPhone/iPad to your AirPlay-compatible TV or one that's hooked to an Apple TV. The news is particularly galling for iOS users who were hoping to buy a 2019 model TV from the likes of Samsung, LG, Sony or Vizio which have all announced plans to support AirPlay 2 in their 2019 smart TV offerings. Users can still access Airplay from Apple's Control Panel but will run into errors when trying to stream Netflix content.

So now, it's throwing out the baby with the bathwater and pulling the plug on AirPlay, period.

Qatari firm Ooredoo says it offers 5G services in and around Doha - but does not have devices available to use them. A spokesperson for the world's Smartphone market leader said there are no sales forecasts for the new phone yet.

"We want to make sure our members have a great Netflix experience on any device they use", Netflix told the Verge in a statement.

"We can't distinguish which device is which, we can't actually certify the devices.so we've had to just shut down support for it", a Netflix spokesperson says.

If you own an Apple TV, you will now have to use the tvOS app to watch content from Netflix on your TV instead of simply using AirPlay to from your iPhone. It may work with Cast button or AirPlay Mirroring.

Though annoying, this isn't a huge limitation for Netflix's iOS customers. So hopefully, whatever is going on here will get resolved soon.
