In efforts to save money we downgraded Dish satellite service as low as possible and still pay $40 a month. To substitute the channels loss we signed up for the streaming TV services Netflix and Hulu Plus. Both of these streaming services are pretty good , but we’ve had a few problems with them loading from the router to the living room on the Wii, PlayStation 3 and XBox before. Here is the easiest fix for this common problem.
What are Loading and Sign In Problems with Netflix?
Most common problems I’ve had are Netflix and Hulu Plus let me sign in and never loads the app. You can check the server / internet connection from all of your streaming devices even with Netflix open and it will tell you that you are connected to the server. Amazingly in 2014 it still doesn’t give you a reason why it won’t connect or attempt to fix it automatically. Second, you click on the app on your Wii or PlayStation3 under streaming video services and Netflix or Hulu Plus attempts to load, but never connects to the internet and then gives you an error screen saying that Netflix can’t connect to the server / internet and to check your connection. Again, you can waste time and check all the system settings and it never fixes the problem (Netflix won’t load).
Note: Many times in the past people would get “cannot connect to Netflix. Please try again later” and it could be corrected by resetting the date and time to the internet.
Easiest Way to Fix Netflix and Hulu Plus Not Loading or Connecting to the Internet on a PS3, Wii or XBox
I realize now that most of these connection problems occur, like on your desktop, laptop computer or Iphone 5 after you perform any kind of system update. Unfortunately, updates for your computer and gaming systems aren’t always compatible with services like Netflix and this is the main problem with Netflix and Hulu Plus not logging in or being able to open at all.
The easiest fix for Netflix and Hulu Plus not loading or connecting to the server is to delete the app and reload it from the app store. Since these are also online services and preprogrammed on the PS3, Wii and XBox you can immediately re-download without turning off the system and all of your preferences and login names etc. don’t have to be reentered. You have to wait a few minutes for the download and it will usually tell you that a new version of Netflix or Hulu Plus is available for download. After downloading the newer version of Netflix or Hulu Plus you may have to restart your system, but it should allow you to sign in and connect to the internet. Good luck,
