  1. Provides help for those who are having technical issues with connectivity problem that is keeping them from streaming
  2. Common messages associated with Netflix connection issues are “Cannot Connect to Netflix“, “Cannot reach” and “Netflix is Not Available
  3. The help page provides information for every device that streams Netflix (i.e. XBox 360, PS4, Nintendo Wii U, Roku, TiVO etc)


It should be noted the number one tip is to restart/unplug the streaming device and start it back up/plug it back in as this solves the issue 50% of the time according to Netflix customer support.  Here are the exact directions to follow when restarting the Netflix streaming device:

  1. Restart the device
  2. Unplug your device from power for at least 10 seconds
  3. Plug your device back in
  4. Turn your device on with the power button

Hopefully the problem will be solved after the above four steps are complete.  If the problem persist after the restart please contact a Netflix customer service agent at 1 (866) 579-7172 for further testing and troubleshooting (be prepared to stay on the phone for a while aka at least 10 minutes).
