Solution

Netflix® updated the app version to 4.0.4 Build 1716, which should resolve and prevent Error -111. Update the Netflix app on your TV to avoid getting the error message.

Note:

  • If the error message still appears after you update the Netflix app, select the RESET button on the error window. This will log you out of Netflix and should resolve the issue. Sign back in to continue to use the app.
