Sadly, Finally, Netflix isn’t available in my country…

The Windows 8.1 Netflix app has received a new update in the Windows Store that has no change log as of now. But, according to some forum postings and reviews that I’ve observed on the Windows Store, the update has been made available to fix some streaming issues that several users have been complaining about.

Netflix is one of the best movie apps a Windows 8 user could have in their collection, so it has millions of customers from all over the world. Besides solving the streaming issue, the app now seems snappier, so we suspect a performance improvement has also been made. The app’s description goes like this:

Netflix is the world’s leading subscription service for watching TV episodes and movies. Get the free app as a part of your Netflix membership and you can instantly watch thousands of TV episodes & movies. If you are not a Netflix member sign up for Netflix and start enjoying immediately with our one-month free trial.

Currently, the app is available in the following languages and countries: English (United States), Spanish, French, Portuguese, English (Canada), Danish, Finnish, Dutch, Swedish, English (United Kingdom), Norwegian (Bokmål). Download and install the updated Windows 8.1/10 Netflix app if have a Netflix movie streaming subscription and own a Windows 8.1/10 or Windows RT device.

[UPDATE] Netflix is now available in more than 30 languages, so you can enjoy the programs in so many different countries. Still, if you wish to stream the programs from the US and you live don’t live there, find a reliable VPN to by-pass geo-restriction: Free* VPNs that work with Netflix [2018 Guide].

Many users waited patiently for PiP mode to reach the Netflix app. The good news came recently: Netflix for Windows 10 app finally received Picture in Picture mode. The Netflix app is also 4K compatible, and it has the highest bitrate in both audio and video.
