Netflix app freezes at start-up on Xbox 360

For the past few weeks, whenever I launch the Netflix app on my 360 it hands up on the red screen. No loading message just the red screen with Netflix logo on it. It never loads. I think this may be linked to a recent Netflix and/or dashboard update that I recall happening a few weeks ago.

Anyhow, anyone else having this issue?

Side Note: Everything else works fine: Live, Amazon Prime, etc...

Have you tried deleting the app and reinstalling it?

I'll do that tonight. I considered that but thought I'd throw my issue out there it see if it is a known problem.

I've seen it happen when there was connectivity issues on the Netflix side. The app couldn't connect to Netflix servers and it didn't know how to handle it and just locked up.

Just to follow-up: Deleted and re-downloaded app and now all works perfectly.

Thanks again!

Re: Netflix app freezes at start-up on Xbox 360

the netflix app has never given me any issues whatsoever. however the 360 youtube app makes me want to pull my hair out. Some videos will play fine, but most videos buffer periodically. I have a good dsl speed. I can stream HD Netflix movies flawlessly, but trying to play a crappy quality youtube video gives me issues. I have done everything under the sun to try to fix it, but no luck.


anyone else have the issue?

Hulu Plus will give me this problem every once and a while.

Who is your ISP?

Also that issue is not unique to the Xbox360 app.

Found this link: http://mitchribar.com/2013/02/how-to...windows-guide/

Courtesy of Mordred. That won't help your XBox360 in and of itself, unless you can blackhole the IPs in question on the router that your 360 connects to.

Definitely helped me for my PCs.
