    I've also noticed that if my wife is in the same room using the MacBook Pro/Internet that Netflix will start acting strange....pausing, jumping back to the main page. The ATV seems very sensitive to other devices in the room.

    The Xbox works fine, as does the MacBook with Netflix. This is the fourth time this has happened to me. This buggy-ness is really annoying. And it's not only with the Netflix app. The podcast's are buggy as all heII. And the streaming from my Mac, work maybe 50% of the time.

    I had the same problem, but found a solution on the web. On you apple TV go to General>Network>Configure TCP/IP. Choose Manual Config. Change the DNS to
    If that doesn't work try That last one worked for me. You dont have to change anything else. Apparently the glitch has to do with ow Netflix servers communicate with the Apple TV.

    I hope this helps.

    Neither worked. Unplugged it. Reset it. Restored it. Did everything you could possibly do, but it still doesn't work. I'm able to connect to the internet because I can get internet radio. This is what it says when I try to log in to Netflix:

    Unable to sign in
    Please re-log in to Netflix. If the problem persists please visit the Netflix website.

    It started working. Didn't do anything though. Just kept entering my email account and password over and over again. Finally worked.

    1. changed password on Netflix site then logged out. 2. ATV reset: Settings> General>Reset 3. after reset verify network connection. 4. sign into Netflix using only the handheld remote to enter Netflix user name and new password. Don't use ipad or iphone which is what I did initially.

    Netflix support new nothing about the error and suggested contacting internet provider??

    My Apple TV 2G was working perfectly fine. I made the mistake of upgrading to the new iOS and guess what? Now it doesn't work!

    Netflix is extremely slow, the movies are freezing constantly, the UI is sluggish. * Apple? What is this? They totally screwed us up with this update dudes. I know its not my internet or my modem or my router because I have another Apple TV here that I did not upgrade that is working like a charm. I also have a Samsung Blu-Ray that has Netflix and I connected it and it is working like a charm as well but when I try to access Netflix or the Apple store movies with my Apple TV...nothing. Slow like ** and freezing. I am taking it back to the Apple store Saturday to get it exchanged for another one. The Apple TV has a 1 year warranty and I have only had it for 2 months. This is ridiculous.

    I'm having the same issue; i updated the 2G ATV to the latest firmware and now Netflix doesn't work. My MacBook, iPhone4 and iPad ALL play Netflix perfectly but not the ATV. Please keep us posted.

    Logging in to Netflix with the Apple Remote instead of the iPad works like magic.


    And tell them. The more we do this the faster this will get fixed.

    Had this problem as well - found if I go to the apple movies> preview a movie then go back to netflix atv lets me access netflix - before doing this i went to general and tested the network and chose not sure for speed > then went to netflix > that cruddy message shows up > went to apple movies and did a preview of a movie > back to netflix and now it works.  Has worked twice for me now so not sure where the glitch is but as long as I have found a solution I figured I would share with everyone here.

    Unfortunately this does not so much sound like a solution, as a successful connection following several unsuccessful ones. The random nature of this issue is already established, but what is causing it is not - much less what can be done about it! We just wasted an entire evening responding to Netflix's "please try later" messages, which resulted in us watching the first 3 minutes of a series of movies we would rather have like to have watched...
