Netflix announced that it has stopped supporting the AirPlay feature that allows Apple users to stream content from iPhone, iPad or Apple TV.
According to Netflix, AirPlay is so well supported elsewhere that it does not feel the need to include it as a standard feature.
The company told Macrumours: "We want to make sure our members have a great Netflix experience on any device they use – with AirPlay support distributed on third-party devices, there is no way for us to distinguish between devices or certify to certify these experiences. & # 39;
"We have decided to discontinue support for Netflix AirPlay to ensure compliance with our quality standards for viewing. Members can continue to access Netflix via the integrated app on Apple TV and other devices."
There is a great need to have built-in AirPlay support as Netflix has its app in virtually all set-top boxes and mobile app stores, but the decision may also have something to do with the growing gap between the two giant companies.
Apple recently revealed its plans to stream TV and original content with Apple TV +.
Netflix CEO Reed Hastings recently confirmed that his company has no intention of being part of Apple's television plans and has stated that Netflix is not interested in offering its content in alternative ways.
"We want people to watch our shows on our services," he said.
