What alternatives are left to continue watching NetflixIt is not yet known which devices of the other brands are going to stop working, so the best thing to do if you suspect that this service is going to end is to go to the Netflix compatible devices page, search for the TV brand and make sure if it is.
The good news is that it will not be necessary to change the TV to continue enjoying the Netflix application. If you have a PlayStation 3, a PlayStation 4 or an Xbox One, you will be able to continue watching the platform without problems. This is also the case in case of using Movistar or AppleTV model 2 decoders, Chromecast, Fire Stick or an Amazon Fire TV device.
The announcement comes a month after Netflix announced its intention to avoid sharing passwords in the streaming service.
