On Netflix ive been noticing real bad static and white dots on screen while watching some shows. Mainly Peaky Binders. 
Anyone else getting this or know how to stop it. Tried on 2 TV's and also different devices but still the same. Figure maybe its something at Netflix's end? Seems to come and go 4-10 times during an episode.

Haven't noticed anything.

What device are you watching on?
Is the effect always at the same locations in the episode?

Tried on Roku 3, Chromecast and Xbox. Seems to always be at same locations on shows and tried in different rooms of house etc in case there was interference.

Do you see the same interference watching via the web on a computer?

No on computer it seems fine. 

Im putting it down to a Netflix thing. As it only seems to be on a couple of shows I watch. Other ones play fine. And the fact it happens on most of my devices and even when I rewind and watch same part again. I think now if it was some kind of wifi interference it would not only happen at the exact same parts of the same episode.

Conspiracy theory: they are doing it ON PURPOSE.

I don't believe it for one second - just thought I'd be the first to say it!

I've ONLY seen it on Peaky Blinders, so I assume it's in the encode for that show. What else have you spotted it in?

Yea that's the only show I've mainly noticed it on as well, and been watching. But did also get in on two episodes of Sons of Tuscon

come to think of it, I did notice some strange visuals while streaming Arrow a week ago - images were ghosting on top on each other as the camera moved around.

This only happened on Arrow (for me) so didn't think much of it.

I've got a Samsung 40" FHD TV hooked up with Roku.
This is likely unrelated to your problem, but sometimes when I switch on the TV with the Roku still powered on, my TV shows flickering dots on the blacks of the screen.
I believe it' may have something to do with the irregularities of the refresh rate since New Zealand TVs are 50hz while American TVs are 60hz. I sometimes have to manually go change to 720p and then 1080p on my Roku for the TV itself to properly update and not flicker anymore.

New Zealand TV's are 50 and 60 Hz, As the 60 Hz modes are a requirement. The US managed to get the 50Hz modes made not a requirement.
