    Netflix App: Live Tile?


    Hello, I thought that with Windows 8.1 the Netflix app would be updated with Live Tile and all that good stuff, but so far, I only noticed that it supports the new big tile format, but it is useless when it doesn't have a live tile

    I am asking about this, because I did saw a video with the Netflix app having a working live tile (It was some Microsoft employee video). Could it be in the works with an update to come? What do you think? Would you like to have a live tile for Netflix?

    Thanks in advance!

    Doesn't your Netflix tile show your recent usage in a live tile?

    My Netflix live tile has also stopped functioning... Netflix live tile was working fine until I upgraded to 8.1, after the upgrade all other tiles function properly except this damn Netflix tile. It just stays static with the red Netflix logo and never goes live. I have uninstalled and re-installed a few times to no avail., ran the trouble shooter, everything is up to date, drivers etc. and still nothing. The 8.1 is great, I love it everything is working beautifully except this one tile.. Please help if anyone has solved this.

    Now my live tile stopped working.

    The app troubleshooter fixed some others that stopped working, but not NetFlix. There's got to be something wrong with the app if so many are having problems.

    Everyone should report this through the app's charms bar. Perhaps they'll fix it then.

    Did yours stop working after the 8.1 upgrade?

    Welcome to Windows EightForums, Ozone1971.

    No. It worked for awhile, then stopped.
