This is not the first time Netflix has been removed from Sony TVs, according to The Sun.


Late last year the streaming platform revealed that a number of TVs from 2012 and 2013 would no longer be able to support the app.

The Netflix app was removed from those affected TVs in February 2024.

Netflix will no longer be supported on some 2014 Sony BRAVIATM LCD TVs from July 24, 2024.
