Cannot Activate Netflix On New "Smart TV"
by cadmium48 - 4/1/11 9:08 AM
I just received a 2011 Samsung PN59D8000 TV. It's great other than I cannot get the freaking Netflix App to Activate correctly.
I go through the activation process and on Netflix's end it claims it was successful, but on the TV itself it says "Sorry, this device cannot be activated".
I've talked to Netflix support and they say it's registered fine on their end. I've talked to Samsung support, who have also been less than helpful.
For background, the tv is connected to the internet fine, I've activated pandora and vudu, and can stream video though vudu and youtube apps. I can also use netflix through other devices in my house (tivo, xbox).
Also, due to some manufacturing defects, I went through 2 other "smart tv's" (though the led/lcd un55d8000 series) before this one, which were running the exact same software and both of which activated without a hitch.
So the problem seems to be specific to this app on this tv. And I have no idea why.
I'm very frustrated here, can anyone help?
