  • Many Edge users trying to watch movies on Netflix are disappointed. 
  • Some problems that Netflix had with the browser are not yet solved.
  • Apparently, it is still too dark and the colors are still pretty desaturated.
  • Netflix is allegedly investigating this issue but an eta for a fix is unsure.

This is certainly not the first time we are hearing people complain about this same situation, which seems to occur when trying to enjoy Netflix from Microsoft’s Edge browser.

Similar reports were flooding the internet a couple of months earlier, and it seems that the issue still isn’t solved for some users.

Although this isn’t affecting absolutely everyone that uses Edge, there are several reports of Netflix being too dark, despite brightness set to maximum, and its other colors being too washed up.

Edge users still struggle with poor quality Netflix streaming

Users that are still flagging this problem with Netflix running on Edge are also pointing out that everything is as clear as daylight when they try watching on other browsers, such as Chrome or Firefox.

We can understand how frustrating this can be, as many have given up on using other browsers than Edge, so constantly having to switch between them can become a nuisance at some point.

What’s even more annoying is that, even after following some of the troubleshooting steps, some users haven’t really managed to get this whole situation sorted out.

Apparently, the problem persists even after fiddling with the browser’s settings and completing troubleshooting steps.

Although such issues can really get on someone’s nerve, we can’t say that we’re surprised, considering that Netflix and Edge haven’t been such best buddies throughout time.

Last year, users were complaining about HDR not working on Netflix, so the two have a history of not playing very nice with each other.

As the Redditor that created the post said, Netflix is currently investigating the issue, and hopefully, it won’t be that long before actual progress is made in this regard.

We’ll definitely keep an eye out for any new details and keep you up to date as soon as other information surfaces.
