Netflix Hates My HDMI Dongle
Just a warning to anybody trying to mirror Netflix using Apple’s Digital AV to Lightning adapter: it won’t work.
Hey @netflix, why can’t I view my content that I paid for, just because I’m using the HDMI adapter to connect my phone to my non-smart TV? These stupid DRM policies are only hurting paying customers, not pirates. Are you trying to incentivize customers to cancel & pirate? pic.twitter.com/0hRhZuZM62— Eric Park (@ericswpark) May 5, 2022
Thanks, Netflix DRM!
The Netflix CS team sent me a couple of replies since the initial tweet. In case you’re wondering what the Netflix team did, mostly nothing at this point. They contacted me via Twitter DM and told me they are “investigating,” and that they had forwarded my “report” to the “Research Team.” I haven’t heard back from them as of writing this (May 20th, 2022). I will update this post accordingly if I hear back from them.
