Download and install Netflix app on your Windows 10 to watch TV shows and movies.
On 1st August,Netflix launched profile support-“Netflix members can create a separate “profile” for each member of their household, who will each see a uniquely personalized experience based upon their individual watching habits, their personal favorite shows, and favorite genres, all driven by Netflix recommendation technology. Each account can have up to five profiles…”
When users try this on Windows Media Center they experience the following error message:-
Neither Microsoft nor Netflix seem to want to claim responsibility for it.
A workaround to fix this issue:-
“If all of the profiles except for the main one, which can’t be deleted, are removed then Windows Media Center will work the way it did before. You could call this a solution if the Netflix Windows Media Center plugin is the only way you consume Netflix, but if you’re looking to use the new profile support across multiple devices you’re still stuck.”
Remember in Windows 8.1 the whole thing is still in the dark-may be as it’s a preview build.
A full 20% of Netflix subscribers have reported that they’ve cancelled their pay-TV subscriptions, according to the latest study from Cowen and Co on the subject.
eMarketer says that this raises the question as to whether more Netflix subscribers could soon become cord-cutters.
To put it in perspective, nearly three-quarters of Netflix subscribers in the US still kept their cable, satellite or telecom pay-TV subscriptions
