So why does an amazon fire tv, a roku 3, a roku stick, a fire tv stick, and a generic cheap android tv box all run netflix successfully on said TV's (I've tried on 4 TV's now with different cables). Again, I'm not trying to push 4k content and its not a 4k TV. There is simply a problem on some mi boxes in regards to netflix. It has nothing to do with the TV or cables or speed of wireless or internet. IT"S THE MI BOX. A sideloaded tablet version of netflix works fine on the mi box. It is simply the mi box. The only thing I haven't tested is the box connected to a 4k tv. If it did work - this too would only point to a problem with the mi-box. It is of consistent quality of other Xiaomi devices. They are high value, low quality electronic devices. I'd recommend anyone pick one of these up and try it............if they can easily return it. If not - stay away from it.
