In 2016, Netflix launched a feature that allowed users to stream videos from the service to their TV through their Netflix app on a Roku box.
That feature was designed to bring Netflix’s streaming video service to devices like the Roku, Apple TV, and Amazon Fire TV.
But the feature also allowed Netflix to add video content from the company’s partners, including Vudu, YouTube, Hulu, and YouTube Red, as well as content from third-party apps like Netflix, Apple Music, and Spotify.
So, what’s different now?
Netflix said that all of its streaming video content will now be accessible to Roku users on a variety of devices, including Roku TVs and Fire TV sets, Apple TVs, and Chromecast Ultra streaming sets.
And Netflix will continue to offer an unlimited number of streaming movies and TV shows, even if you don’t have a Roku or Apple TV.
If you already own a Roku, there’s still a way to access your video content: you can use a compatible Roku remote to stream to your TV via the Netflix app, and the app will also show you what the Netflix video you’re watching is in its history.
That way, you can keep watching movies and shows that you like, even as you watch your favorite Netflix shows.
The new feature is available on Roku, Roku TVs, Chromecast, AppleTV, Apple Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, Apple HDTV, and Fire HDTV.
