Netflix withdraws support for Apple AirPlay

Netflix removes key feature from its iOS app

"Airplay is no longer supported for use with Netflix due to technical limitations", according to a support page on Netflix's official website, leaving only built-in Chromecast, the Netflix 2nd Screen feature, and external cables as the only ways to connect Netflix for iOS to a TV. The company hasn't shared any specific information on why Airplay is suddenly not supported on iPhones.

The timing of Netflix's move to end support for AirPlay, coming as it did two weeks after Apple unveiled a rival streaming service, raised suspicions that Netflix was punishing a rival. 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.

This week Netflix rolled out an update to their iOS devices.

"Airplay is no longer supported for use with Netflix due to technical limitations", according to a support page on Netflix's official website, thereby leaving built-in Chromecast, the Netflix 2nd Screen feature, and external cables as the only ways to connect Netflix for iOS to a TV.

Apple recently announced its Apple TV+ service, which is basically a Netflix competitor in its infancy.

It seems that Netflix is anxious that AirPlay on 3rd party TVs will give a substandard experience when using Netflix.

"We want to make sure our members have a great Netflix experience on any device they use".

"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.
