Seems there is a patch I need to download to get my pre-installed Netflix account to work. What is the url for that upgrade, please?

Technician's Assistant: What's the model number of your TV? How old is it?

It's brand new. Bought it on Saturday.

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

No, everything else works just fine. Click and you're away. Only Netflix is behind it seems

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

You click on the netflix logo. Up comes a screen asking 'who's watching' and there it freezes. I have to re-boot the tv to get it going again. It's a jvc

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Expert to know before I connect you?

Not that I'm aware of. Not terribly tech smart at age 65 ūüėĄ

I can't see where to uninstall the program
TV Technician: Richard, Technician replied 11 months ago

What do you mean with Reset? Factory Reset of TV?

Someone said to enable extensions, but the three lines that are supposed to be top right is top left on the browser and doesn't work
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Re-set as in hold the power button down for 30 seconds
TV Technician: Richard, Technician replied 11 months ago

Ok, I think I see the issue, you are trying to use Netflix via the web browser on the TV?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
No, via the pre-installed app
TV Technician: Richard, Technician replied 11 months ago

you cannot uninstall it.

Go to Menu, then option, locate Factory Reset and do this

Once done, setup the TV again and tell me if it then works please

TV Technician: Richard, Technician replied 11 months ago

Is it running on a 3G / 4G network or to cable?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
LTE
TV Technician: Richard, Technician replied 11 months ago

Ok, there lies the problem, your internet will be way to slow for the TV to use, when it goes to load the content, it does not freeze it just takes a very long time and is in effect not usable.

You need a proper cable connection if you wish to use the netflix services on the TV.

This is the cause of the problem

But youtube and showmax works just fine?
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
the app works just fine on my iphone using the same router?
TV Technician: Richard, Technician replied 11 months ago

yes, they use a lot less data, as does the App.

The TV's netflix app uses a substantial amount of data compared to this.
