The Netflix icon is just not there does anyone have any idea why

There is no Netflix on the 2014 device.

If you wanted Netflix then you should have purchased the older WDTV Live Streaming

What I can’t understand is why WD would release a player internationally that will only get a movie station and channels that can only be purchased and used in the Contenantal United States? Would they not think this might have been a bad idea for their client base. Not reading the reviews is something that I did since I was replacing my last WD TV unit. Why bother reading a review unless a company starts making bone headed stupid decisions like dropping the number one subscribed Internet movie station. Simply flabbergasted that someone wouldn’t think of this first. Well I did learn my lesson and now WD will learn one to as I return this and switch to other brands that think about the world when developing a product and not just a section of it.

The only thing I can figure is that they’ve lost the rights, or didn’t pay the fee to get Netflix on their box, I’m not sure how it goes, but it is a strange thing, I do concur. 

Read this…Netflix could dissapear from older divices (if I am reading this correctly)
