Netflix removes support for Apple's AirPlay

Netflix's updated support documents mention that it had to pull AirPlay support from its iOS app due to "technical limitations".

If you have been struggling to AirPlay Netflix content via iOS devices on Apple TV, you are not alone.

So now, it's throwing out the baby with the bathwater and pulling the plug on AirPlay, period. Is the lack of AirPlay support in Netflix's iOS app going to be a bummer for you? Please try again later.

Netflix suddenly and unceremoniously stopped supporting AirPlay capability, quietly informing users accustomed to the wireless streaming feature of the change via service support page. The feature is convenient when attempting to watch content from your own account on an Apple TV that doesn't have your particular login information, however.

It seems that Netflix is anxious that AirPlay on 3rd party TVs will give a substandard experience when using Netflix.

According to a statement given to MacRumors, the reason is that AirPlay is now available on multiple devices, and Netflix can't distinguish between them.

We want to make sure our members have a great Netflix experience on any device they use.
