    Apple TV gives me error 152, and iOS gives me error 108. Both error codes are slang for "we have no idea what's wrong". Netflix will only work if I switch to cellular, for some reason... And what's more, Netflix works flawlessly with my MacBook Pro on the same wifi network.

    What could be wrong? I have a Netgear Nighthawk R7000, if it matters, but none of my devices are given special treatment such as static addresses, priority, etc.

    Works fine for me with both my iPhone 6s plus running iOS 9.2 and my TV 4 running the latest version of tvOS. Perhaps, you should find a location served by another router and try there. If that does not work, then check your settings to ensure that your Netflix account credentials are correct.

    As with MisterMe, all my devices on the local network wireless or wired including ATV4, iPhones, MacBooks, Win10 etc work fine with Netflix. If it's not a log in issue then there might be a configuration issue with your router. I recently went through a series of connection issues all related to how Cox (my ISP) recently implemented IPv6 in my area. Airport Extremes with 802.11ac here.

    1. Forget Wi-fi on TV and iOS and then reconnect
    2. Delete Netflix apps from both and redownload 'em

    Any change? Or did you perhaps already do this?

    Reconfiguring wifi, app and router was the first thing I did. Sometimes it randomly works, but most of the time it doesn't.

    Edit: Success! Reinstalled Netflix, powercycled everything, sent my prayers, etc., and now it suddenly works. Maybe it'll stop working again tomorrow. Guess I'll just have to watch the entire series before Netflix acts up again.

    Edit: ISP will send out a technician to upgrade modem and router and upgrade our connection. Turns out everything about our setup was ancient. This'll surely fix my woes.
