    Hi
    I'm new to my Sony NSZ-GS7. I just added my free Netflix streaming and am wondering if anyone has the "Play on" option from either an Android or IOS device that works from Netflix. So, I go to the Netflix app on my phone or tablet, select the "Play on" option, however, I only see my Chromecast and This device; I cannot see my Sony Google TV. Is this normal?

    I am able to see my Google TV from the YouTube app on my devices, so either something is wrong with the Netflix app or it just doesn't work on my Google TV.

    Can anyone confirm this, or if it should work for Netflix, any advice you have would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Netflix used to list my Revue on my Android phone and tablet as a Play On device. But recent Netflix updates removed it. But it never worked anyway. Every time I tried it would do nothing. I don't think it ever worked for anyone. See article link below.

    I too now have a Chromecast and also a GS8. Netflix connects to Chromecast perfectly. Only YouTube sees both Chromecast and GTV devices. I'd say that Netflix will bring this feature back when it works. Hopefully soon.
