    Netflix app issue (and Hulu Plus too)


    I was given the notification in the store yesterday that my Netflix app needed an update...since then, I can't use it. It keeps giving me an error message that there is something wrong with my network connection, and that it may just be temporary & to try again later..but no matter how or when I try, I keep getting the same message. I've tried uninstalling & re-installing the app, nothing. Not a HUGE deal since it works in my browser, but I was enjoying the app & wondered if this is an issue on the Netflix end or what? I knwo it can't be my PC as I just got it a couple of weeks ago..so it's brand new. And my internet connection is fine. I also get an error message when trying to use the Hulu Plus app as well.

    Anyone out there experiencing this or have any solutions?

    Thank you!

    try uninstalling it. and then redownloading it.

    next time you see the error message, can you take a screenshot? and have you changed your video driver lately?

Netflix and IE11 bug\issue in Browsers & Mail
Not sure where this bug is coming from, I'm guessing it's limited to IE11, since I don't have this issue when using Chrome. Out of 3 Windows 8.1 systems, this is the only one that is having the issue. Oddly, this system has only been installed(fresh, not upgraded) for about 2 weeks, so it's pretty...

Sup guys. Was just wondering what you guys use to stream movies and shows? I have netflix, was wondering if getting Hulu too is worth it, or just the same lineup and availability of shows? Would be interested to hear from anyone who has both. ;)
