ok so I know that this problem is not just something that I am dealing with, but a lot of fire owners are dealing with. Netflix lag so bad most of the time. I have tried everything like closing all other apps before trying to use it, but nothing works. The audio is off as well. I would not think that the device lacks the power to run Netflix cause is handles the Amazon movies streaming just fine. I would just like to see if everyone is having this problem, and is there some kind of fix for it. One of the appealing things about the fire was netflix, but man they sure have not delivered.
