How do I fix Netflix on Hisense Smart TV?

If you are uninstalling the Netflix app because it is not working or loading content on your Hisense Smart TV, try these methods to troubleshoot the issue:

Force-restart Your TV

The first and foremost way to fix Netflix on your Hisense Smart TV is to force-restart it. Doing so can resolve minor bugs in the TV software that is causing a malfunction in the app. 

To do this:

  • Press “Home” on remote.
  • Open “Settings.”
  • Go to “System.”
  • Select “Power.”
  • Select “Restart/Reboot.”

When the TV turns on, open the Netflix app and check whether your issue is fixed.

If not, locate the power cable at the back of the TV and carefully unplug it from the main wall. Now, leave your TV in this state for 15-30 seconds to let the residual power dissipate. 

Finally, plug the power cable back into the main outlet, turn on the TV, and see if Netflix is working fine now! 

Note: Force-restarting your Hisense TV will also force-close the Netflix app, which can also fix it in the process. 

Update Netflix App

If you’ve not updated Netflix on your Hisense Smart TV for quite a long time, it might stop working or loading content due to compatibility issues with the latest software updates. 

In such a case, it’s best to update the Netflix app to the latest version on your TV with these steps:
