Roku device owners are not the only ones who are going to lose the Netflix service by the end of 2019. Some older versions of Smart TVs are also set to end Netflix support before the year ends. Some Smart TV owners have already received notifications for the change.

Although it can be inconvenient for Netflix fans of these Roku devices and Smart TV owners, losing Netflix support in other services is not rare to happen. Last year had also disappointed a lot of Netflix fans when the Nintendo lost its Netflix support.

Streaming services losing its Netflix support has become a regular occurrence, much to the dismay of their fans, because of their continued up-to-date advancement.
