Netflix will not connect on our Apple TV 4K we get a 109 error. We have tried the following....

 

Deleted and reinstalled the Netflix App

 

Reset the Apple TV

 

Reset our Internet connection ( Spark UFB)

 

Tried both WiFi and wired connections

 

Ensured all other devices are log out of Netflix, we have the Premium 4K Netflix sub.

 

I am at a loss as to what to try next. Other Apps like Your Tube, Lightbox and Prime Video have no issues and our older Apple TV has no issues connecting to Netflix. Anyone have any ideas?

Hop onto Netflix's helpdesk (online chat).

 

When I upgraded mine to tvOS 12 it looked like the Netflix app updated, but on opening it was only showing 1 out of 5 profiles, their helpdesk was able to fix this behind the scenes.

I contacted Netflix, went though all the steps to fix with out luck. Got me beat. A long shot  wonder if its related to why I cannot get Google Photos to load in browser, some weird issue with Spark but what in the name of Thor could it be? everything else works on the Apple TV and Netflix works fine on other devices

Only other remote ideas I've got: using a different DNS server? turn IPv6 off?

I connected my Apple TV via Hotspot on my mobile (Spark) and voila Netflix worked. Went back to my UFB network and Netflix will not connect. Must be something with Spark but what? I have also tried wired  Ethernet  with no luck

At great peril and pain I connected the Spark supplied HG659 and Netfix connected and played fine. I then reconnected my Netgear Orbi and Netfilx is now connected fine with that. So I have no idea what was stopping the connection maybe @hio77 will have an idea?

i'd say dns cache flushed, but you tried a reset already?..

 

 

 

my theories past this are all wild guesses.

Yes I had previously reset everything. I will tell my brother in law that it's all Chorus fault, it is good to wind him up over the weekend.
