Just looked for Designated Survivor, could not find.  But I did notice a lot of new shows, i.e. 5 seasons of breaking bad, 10 seasons of Friends, 12 seasons of Greys Anatomy.  I assumed the library had been updated.


So I log into netflix on my PC, and Designated survivor is still there, but the other shows above are not.


Is my TV showing me the american library?  I have no VPNs set up.  TV is a new Panasonic Smart TV.

My guess is that the tv is set to US region, so is picking up those shows. My Sony BD player does the same, if I have it set to NZ, I don't even get the option of Netflix, but turn on US region with getflix and then Netflix and the US shows are there.

Downside is I can't use the Netflix app at all, won't load any US title. If I switch Netflix to US on Getflix, it won't connect to Netflix at all

I have been using Netflix on TV normally for a few months on my NZ account - it's just now randomly started offering US shows. Weirdly it's working fine - started watching breaking bad last night.
