    Title says it all. Daughter is still using the U11 and just went to download netflix. Ya, nope.

    Seems to be changes in Play Store giving Dev's option to block phones with unlocked bootloader? Which the only way to get HTC's, even then, was unlocked from HTC.

    I will say, sideloading Netflix apk from apkmirror did the trick, but seriously, as if I needed more evidence that HTC is dead....

    so is the phone rooted then? and are you saying that netflix will not work on a rooted phone? or a phone that has the bootloader unlocked?

    Just unlocked bootloader. I found a xda thread that mentioned some change in play store that allowed devs to block *any* phones with unlocked bootloaders. Netflix is one of the apps that did it.
    Phone is totally stock, but even couple years ago you could not get HTC from a carrier, so it is unlocked.
