Netflix suddenly drops AirPlay support from its iOS apps

Netflix removes Apple Air Play support from its iPhone and iPad apps

In a move that's bound to cause inconvenience to a lot of iPhone users who are heavily into Netflix, the streaming service no longer supports AirPlay. AirPlay is Apple's content-sharing feature that lets users play videos, photos, music and other media from iOS devices on Apple TV and select AirPlay 2-enabled TVs and smart speakers.

"Netflix told Macrumors: "...we have chose to discontinue Netflix AirPlay support to ensure our standard of quality for viewing is being met. Members can continue to access Netflix on the built-in app across Apple TV and other devices".

AirPlay can still be actioned from Control Center on the device but it seems that Netflix has also taken that into consideration and has protective code around it resulting in an error message being displayed in the Netflix app. "Please try again later". The feature is convenient when attempting to watch content from your own account on an Apple TV that doesn't have your particular login information, however. Slated to launch in May 2019, the updated Apple TV app includes a "channels" storefront that will sell à-la-carte subscriptions to HBO, Showtime, Starz, Epix, CBS All Access, Noggin and others - but not Netflix.

Netflix suddenly and unceremoniously stopped supporting AirPlay capability, quietly informing users accustomed to the wireless streaming feature of the change via service support page.

Beto O'Rourke: Trump's Rhetoric Echoes The 'Third Reich'
In the aftermath of a deadly clash between attendees and protesters, Trump said that there were "some very fine people" on both sides.

If you want to watch Netflix on your TV, you will now have to buy a Google Chromecast or a Fire TV Stick and connect it to your TV.

The days of beaming your favorite Netflix show to your Apple TV are officially over.

Netflix's iOS app loss of AirPlay support could be due to a broader business disagreement between the two companies - as Apple is gearing up to compete head-to-head with Netflix.
