How to keep watching Netflix in Montana as Smart TV support ends

Montana viewers will lose Netflix on select smart TVs

I have good news and bad news for people who enjoy watching movies. The same goes for those who enjoy watching series. Or check out the latest releases.


The good news is that Netflix isn’t going away completely. The bad news is that it will no longer work on certain smart televisions. So you may end up having to dig into the nice money fund for a new one.

In a release from the website UNILAD, Netflix will once again be rolling out, or in this case cutting off, a new group of Smart TVs that aren’t quite up to date with current types of technology. They did the same in 2019, which you can read about here.

This does not mean that you will never have access to the service again. But you’ll have to access the service through some other means, such as a secondary device like a Playstation, Xbox, Roku device, or Amazon’s Firestick.

Which smart TVs and when will they be affected by the new change in Montana?

According to UNILAD, Sony and Apple TVs will be the hardest hit. Netflix will stop operating on July 24 for many of the models, and then on July 31 for other Apple TV models. A full list of affected TVs can be found here.
