Received an email about Netflix being available through Fios, went to channel 838 and I get a "Widget Launch Error". We are unable to launch Netflix..." I tried installing the Netflix widget via the "A" button, but same error. Any ideas?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Have you tried rebooting STB?
Just tried rebooting the STB but that didn't fix the problem. I can run other widgets. Seems isolated to the Netflix widget. Would be nice if there was some kind of error code or log I could look at. Thanks for the suggestion.
Is your tv a smart tv?
While I don’t have a solution to your problem, I am encountering the same error on only 1 of my TVs. On my 2 other verizon boxes, the Netflix widget seems to work. The only difference with my problematic box is that it’s connected to a smart tv. My smart tv has a Netflix app on its own, so I’m unsure if it’s conflicting.
Shouldn't make a difference.
Try swapping boxes around to see if issue follows.
Are the boxes the same?
I assume you have either VMS or IPC?
No, I don't have VMS or IPC. The email I received from Fios said I didn't need any additional equipment:
Easily stream Netflix originals, hundreds of popular
movies and acclaimed TV shows right from your
channel guide. Access your favorite streaming
service from your channel guide. It’s super easy,
and you don’t need any additional equipment.
Set it up in just a few steps.
1. Go to channel 838.
2. Sign in using your Netflix credentials (or you
can choose to open a new account).
3. Start streaming your favorite shows and movies.
My understanding is that Netflix is only available on VMS and IPC.
Do you have an older model stb?
