Well I think I know why Netflix is disappearing from hoppers. For the first time today I saw that there are 94,000 titles available on On Demand

I am confused. :confused: Are you saying that with 94K titles, Dish no longer needs a Netflix app?

My guess is that the royalties DISH pays for the privilege to have the app on the Hopper isnt resulting in an increase of Netflix subscribers that would offset those payments.

i would surmise that people probably prefer using Smart TV or other streaming device over the Hopper since it is so flaky! I used it once and closed the book on it.

I was stunned it ever was added.

But if it performs “as well as” the YouTube app does, I can see why folks would prefer to use smart TVs, Rokus, etc.

my netflix hopper is great. One remote, fast and all I could ask . Just wish they would do a deal with Amazon and then I would be down to one remote for everything.
The biggest reason for subscribing was the hopper app. Even my wife could learn Alexa start Netflix and she could navigate from there.

That's what I was thinking, too plus all the issues with the App on devices, particularly wireless Joeys
