Netflix stops supporting AirPlay due to "technical limitations"

War heats up as Netflix for iPhone stops supporting Apple Airplay

While Netflix subscription prices are going up, the streaming company has officially killed Apple AirPlay support.

Netflix has suddenly withdrawn support for Apple's AirPlay, a feature that let people watching Netflix on their iPads and iPhones to instantly play the content on their TVs, the media reported.

Due to Apple allowing third-party TVs to support AirPlay, it has become hard for Netflix to differentiate between Apple TVs and other TVs, causing Netflix to be unable to "certify these experiences". AirPlay basically allowed iOS users to stream their favourite show on Netflix to their Apple TV via the iOS app. Netflix justified the move by claiming it is to maintain a standard of quality for its users. However, the severing of AirPlay and Netflix doesn't mean Apple TV owners will be unable watch their favorite Netflix shows. You can still use Netflix on Apple TV as well as on Smart TVs. Apple a few weeks ago unveiled its brand new Apple TV experience, of which Netflix isn't a part of, as well as its own Apple TV+ streaming platform that rivals Netflix directly. It certainly looks as though the streaming service is taking steps to pull itself out of the Apple ecosystem, regardless of the discussion around 'technical limitations'.


Some users have interpreted Netflix's unexpected parting of the ways with AirPlay as a not-so-subtle dig between competitors. Maybe Netflix will even reinstate support after things get figured out, though a spokesperson strongly suggested to me that the ball is in Apple's court now.

It's unclear exactly how many iOS device owners regularly made use of AirPlay support for Netflix.

Netflix plug out support for AirPlay saying "technical limitation". In the meantime, In India and other select nations, Netflix is trying another versatile just membership plan that would just cost users $3.63 every month (Rs. 251). The tech giant says Apple TV+ will launch in fall 2019, but hasn't announced pricing or other details. You will simply have to open the Netflix app instead.
