Is there any other internet application work or have you tried to run any other app in TV to confirm it has wifi connection?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
at thanksgiving I got the netflix log in screen but because of the time it took to enter email address and password, it timed out and I didn't have a chance to try again. Tonight I can't even get the log in screen, just the error message about network interfererence
Expert:  Shahid replied 6 months ago.

I understand, can you try to run any other app except the Netflix to see if it works?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
which one would I try since I don't have HBO or Hulu?
Expert:  Shahid replied 6 months ago.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
same error message for utube
Expert:  Shahid replied 6 months ago.

OK, that means TV isn't connected to wifi router for some reason.

Please unplug TV power cord from wall outlet for 10 minutes to get it reset, replug back in, switch it On and run utube app.

If problem persist then need to go to TV Menu and run Network Setup to establish fresh wifi connection with router to get the TV connected to internet and utube and Netflix apps will start working.

Please reply back with the result.
