Since Netflix isn't working on your TV then TV should be connected to internet and I'm not sure how do you get internet at your home?

Is it through phone line or an optic fiber cable etc?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
it is connected to a cable box
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 11 months ago

OK, please reboot your cable box that might work to get Netflix back on TV.

Do you use cable remote to run Netflix app to get video streaming?
