Netflix drops AirPlay support for Netflix, breaks iOS user hearts

War heats up as Netflix for iPhone stops supporting Apple Airplay

iOS users are up in arms over the Netflix decision to drop support for Apple's proprietary AirPlay streaming protocol. That means you can't beam Netflix shows from your iPhone or iPad to your Apple TV.

The technical limitations that caused Netflix for iOS to suddenly stop supporting AirPlay remain unclear.

It's not really clear what those technical limitations are, given there don't seem to have been any changes made to AirPlay that would break it, though The Verge claims it's something to do with Apple allowing other companies to use its AirPlay 2 standards.

You can still activate AirPlay through the Control Center on an iOS device.

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

Judging from the official statement that Netflix has released to The Verge, it seems that the support for third-party devices is exactly the reason why the company chose to pull out the plug on AirPlay support. Users can still go through the official Netflix app, which can be downloaded for free on any Apple TV.

If you have been struggling to AirPlay Netflix content via iOS devices on Apple TV, you are not alone.

The removal of AirPlay support has been noted by Netflix on its support website. Netflix has refused to participate in Apple's "TV" app and has stopped selling subscriptions directly through the App Store. Therefore, we have chose to discontinue Netflix AirPlay support to ensure our standard of quality for viewing is being met. Apple a few weeks ago unveiled its brand new Apple TV experience, of which Netflix isn't a part of, as well as its own Apple TV+ streaming platform that rivals Netflix directly. Experts say that they will struggle to get the service up in Australia due to competition from Stan, Foxtel and Fetch TV as well as Netflix.

Earlier this month Apple announced a redesigned Apple TV app that will provide a new experience for watching TV shows, movies, and third-party services across iPhones, iPads, Apple TVs, Mac computers, smart TVs, and other streaming devices.
