AirPlay no longer supported by the Netflix app
The Netflix app for iPhone and iPad no longer supports the use of AirPlay, Netflix official help page states.
AirPlay is no longer usable due to “technical limitations”. The company does not explain exactly what those limitations are.
With AirPlay, it is possible to send images from an iOS device to an Apple TV, so that videos or photos can be viewed on television. The screen of the iPhone or iPad can also be shown on TV. AirPlay can still be switched on via the control panel on iOS, but users receive an error message when they use the function in combination with Netflix.
It is not clear why the support has stopped. AirPlay has been working with Netflix since 2013. A separate Netflix app is available on Apple TV. Smart TVs often also have a Netflix app themselves.
