View Full Version : ATV 2 Netflix Error
Oct 14, 2010, 06:15 PM
I've had my new apple tv since it came out and everything has worked fine until last night. I keep getting this message.
"Sorry we could not reach the netflix service. Please try again later. IF the problem persists please visit the netflix website. (112)"
I have logged in and out of netflix on the atv, maybe this is a netflix problem? Is anyone else having trouble currently streaming netflix???

This has happened to me numerous times too. I simply unplug the appletv and allow it to reboot and all is well. Seems like a glitch in the software.

I got errors too, and searching the net brought me to one post in Apple's forum saying that you can't have any special characters in your log in email account. I switch mine to an email without a _ but still had problems.
I searched Netdlix site, and missed the obvious or not so obvious.
Your password cannot be longer than 8 letters or numbers
Never realized this because the iPad app and web interface do not enforce this rule.
Try again and let me know if that solves your problem.

I am having the same issue now and it is getting worse every day. Just about everything I try to watch not doesn't work.

I'm having the same problem with mine. Amelie started playing then went back to the menu twice. I've tried playing some 30 Rock and Arrested Development to no avail either. I feel like I wasted $100 I could have used towards an old mac mini I could have used for Plex.

I have been having the same problem with playing instant netflix on my notebook. I have been putting off buying the appletv because I don't want the same thing to happen and then feel like I wasted $100. Has everyone had the same problem accessing netflix on both their computers and the appletv?

After changing my password to something shorter I still get the same error code.

I had that error when I first tried Netflix. Turned out to be DNS. If you're using your gateway as a DNS proxy, try using a real DNS caching server directly instead. If you don't know of one, use Google's -- 126.96.36.199.
