You don’t need a high-end TV Box to enjoy Netflix on the big screen. Generally, its Android TV compatible app runs smoothly on most certified Android devices.
However, on devices with old versions of the Google operating system, there may be problems downloading the application from the Play Store or even preventing login, among others.
Why doesn’t Netflix work on a TV Box?
This mainly occurs on Android TV Box devices that have no longer received Android updates higher than version 7.1.2 or are not capable of receiving it due to being outdated.
