3. Check Internet connection

Roku Netflix error may also be caused by your internet connection or your home network settings. You may want to test your connection to fix the error.

Run Netflix on other devices. If Netflix does not run using other devices, it is possible that your internet connection has a problem. Call your internet service provider (ISP) if they are under maintenance. In addition, ask them if they have a configuration, security policies, and parental control policies that need to be disabled in order to access Netflix.

If the Netflix error appears only in your Roku, there is a possibility it is not receiving enough bandwidth. If you are on WiFi, look for a better WiFi signal or use a wired connection. If your home network has multiple users, check if they are using too much bandwidth. If they are, wait until they are finished. Another possibility is that if your home network has a firewall. Bypass it by directly connecting your Roku to the modem or configure the firewall.
