Regardless of your subscription, if you own one of the following models of Sony television, the Netflix app will no longer be accessible on that device.

These are the models which will be impacted:

Another 16 TV models affected by this include:

  • KDL-60W610B
  • KDL-60W630B
  • KDL-55X830B
  • KDL-65X830B

  • XBR-65X900B
  • XBR-79X900B
  • XBR-65X950B
  • XBR-85X950B

Peek your head around the back of your set and see if your model number matches any of the above.

The reason for this change is because the aforementioned models are all around ten years old, so this is both Netflix and Sony’s way of nudging you towards buying a new Smart TV.

The dreaded date whereby the app will cease operation on these models is July 24, 2024.

The streaming giant have also stated that Apple TV models of the second and third generation will lose access to Netflix a few days later, on July 31.

So what could you be missing out on post-July? Well, for a start, a Spongebob Squarepants spin-off movie!

Saving Bikini Bottom: The Sandy Cheeks Movie comes to Netflix on 2nd August.

Season four of The Umbrella Academy arrives a week later on August 8, followed a week later by the much-anticipated Sundance Audience Award-winning documentary Daughters.

On August 16th, a Mark Wahlberg and Halle Berry fronted blockbuster called The Union will hit our screens and, perhaps most exciting of all, the UK spin-off of Love Is Blind will arrive on Netflix on sometime that month.

We don’t have an exact release date just yet, but what we do know is that the reality dating show will be hosted by Emma and Matt Willis.

If you don’t want to miss out on any upcoming movies and series in the coming months, you’ve got two options.

Update your telly or consume Netflix solely on your phone, laptop or tablet.
