Netflix Not loading,Starting or in a Bootloop Fix


In this one I will show you how you can deal with Netflix Not loading,Starting or in a Bootloop. In my case I encountered this on: The Netflix app on my FireStick from Amazon.

This applies however to any Netflix you may have which may be on a TV or some other device.

I also notice in my case that a short message flash on screen of Netflix that was almost impossible to catch or read. I recorded the screen and slowed things down to see that it said:

Unable to connect to Netflix. Please try again or visit: www.netflix.com/help. With the options to try again, more details or exit.

You may not see the above error though but its the same issue.

The Problem:

The issue here results in Netflix not loading. The Netflix logo will show as if its loading but once the animation plays as normal it will not fully load and the animation will play over and over again.

In some case a error will flash but you will be unable to read it.
