Error: Unable To Connect to Netflix. Please Try Again Later

    Note: The information in this solution also applies if the error message The service can not be accessed at this time because server replied with an incorrect or invalid information is displayed.

    Check if you can access other internet video applications (such as the YouTube® app or the Crackle® app). If the videos from other apps play properly, it's possible that the Netflix® app is performing a routine maintenance or a system update. During this time, it may not be possible to stream movies or TV shows from the Netflix service. In most cases, the down time for maintenance and system updates doesn't take too long. However, it is recommended to try again at a later time.

    If the error doesn't go away, manually change the Primary DNS to 8.8.8.8 and Secondary DNS to 8.8.4.4 in the Network Setup to resolve the issue.

    Note: Google provides the public DNS servers listed above. Both are subject to the Google Terms of Service.
