Netflix No Longer Working with Rooted Android Devices


Are you using a rooted Android smartphone or tablet? Are you subscribed to Netflix at the same time as well? If the answer is yes to both, then this confirmation from Netflix is for you especially if the streaming app is one of your most used mobile applications in your device. Through a report on Android Police, the streaming giant has officially confirmed that they are now blocking rooted or unlocked devices from working with their app.

Below is the statement released by Netflix that formally confirms Android Police's suspicion on the matter that Google Play has started showing "You device isn't compatible with this version" message when a rooted device tries to download Netflix from them.
"With our latest 5.0 release, we now fully rely on the Widevine DRM provided by Google; therefore, many devices that are not Google-certified or have been altered will no longer work with our latest app and those users will no longer see the Netflix app in the Play Store."
However, if you already have a previous version of Netflix installed in your device, it seems that it still continues to work as normal, at least for now. But if you try to search for the app on Google Play, you should be seeing the incompatible message above. Engadget, on the other hand, notes that if you try to sideload (via APK format) a latest version of Neflix on your rooted device, it still works as well.
