- NetFlix did not submit an update to the store
- I had tested this app on various Windows 10 computers, and searched thoroughly through technical support solutions
- All my Windows 10 machines received a minor update after my original post, it is my guess that one of those updates fixed the experience
- This is a good argument for forcing updates through to users, rather then notify users on Patch Tuesday, and leaving it up to them!
As per my original post:
If you are on Windows 10, the most you will get from the Netflix app is a loading screen.
Don’t blame NetFlix, I clearly recall Microsoft claiming that Windows Store apps will continue to work as normal, and they will remain supported in future editions of Windows.
Anyone familiar with the Windows 8 edition of the app, the experience, was quite delightful – probably the best non-microsoft app to bring you the “Metro” look and feel in a functional and understandable manner.
Now, since Microsoft’s big push to get Windows 10 on a billion devices. NetFlix has become the recipient of a ton of scathing reviews – you can still see a few positive reviews coming through, but my guess is those are from Windows 8 users.
