    I can't be the only one with this issue... One of the main reasons I replaced my 3ds with an XL was for the bigger screen. I use my 3ds for Netflix quite a bit, and a bigger screen seemed like a no brainer to improve the experience. Transferred everything over, but Netflix keeps crashing on me. I don't mean the usual just restart the 3ds to fix it simply not loading, I mean down right forcing the 3ds to restart.

    I figured it was just a bug with the transfer, so I redownloaded it, but it didn't fix the crash at all. I've also shut down the 3ds normally to see if it would fix it. No luck...

    I can confirm the crash~
    After reading your post, I decided to scroll through the videos on Netflix and after a couple minutes it crashed on me...

    How does it crash? Lack of memory, possibly? Bad cookie?

    got the same problem, but i disconnected all my devices in netflix account settings [PC]
    ,delete the netflix app in 3ds xl, then downloaded/reinstalled it again,
    input the activation code from 3ds xl to pc..and right now it seems to be ok.

    ERROR!
    You pay $8 a month and get movies and TV shows on pretty much every platform in your house.

    You guys have Spotify in Denmark right? Well it's like that but for movies instead.

    omg maybe we cn have 3ds emulators now bcz of the crash > exploit yh makes sense /jokes

    On a serious note, I'd take @[member='junn']'s advice. If it worked for him it should work for you.
    Also if it's that common I'm willing to bet Nintendo will patch it in an upcoming update, so don't worry if you couldn't fix it yourself.

    I really don't understand why Europe does not have a Netflix release as of yet we have Netflix accounts this is silly.

    Thats strange. Does it seem to happen after a certain time or something?
