Did someone know how to change the language streaming.  Iron Man 2 is avaible in French and English if you stream it on a computer but on apple tv2 it's only avaible in English.

    I've took some minutes with the tech support of Netflix and this feature is not possible for the moment.  Your post awakes me that some content was available in french, something I didn't know at all.

    I was just a victim of this issue. On the Apple TV (third generation), Iron Man 2 (and other movies) play in French. However on the iPhone or iPad, they play in English. What is up with that?

    I just got off the phone with Netflix support. Specifically for Iron Man 2 and one of the Transformers movies it's a known issue. There is a temporary fix:


    1. Sign in to netflix.ca

    2. Change your account settings for video quality to anything except Best/HD.


    And that's it. I just tested it myself and it worked. He said you may have to wait an hour for the changes to come into effect, but I just logged out and then logged in to my Apple TV Netflix and it was done.


    He also mentioned this is a temporary workaround and they are working on it. Basically when they rent movies for use, they are given a package of different qualities and languages and they accidentally put the French HD in the English HD "slot". 


    Hope that helps!
