Yesterday Netflix main screen has changed. Instead of having a graphic and the program title for each programme it now has just a black rectangle and the title below it. If I click the programme name I can still watch but I wonder where the graphics have gone. Any ideas?

I notice you are using Android based devices to cast so I can not help but my iOS devices are working as per normal since today's update.

 

Have you talked to their help desk: https://help.netflix.com/en scroll to bottom of page for live chat or to voice call.

No I don't use Android devices for Netflix I use a Windows PC HMDI connected to TV. Wasn't sure if it was something at my end but all other streaming services seem OK

Ok This is weird Spoke to Netflix but while doing that I tried another computer and it was fine. I have cleared the cache in original computer Chrome Browser but still have a problem. Have tried Firefox same problem which seems to indicate a wider computer porblem but have no idea what is wrong. Any other suggestions please. Here is a pix of what it looks like
