A statement on Samsung's website suggested users with older TVs who still want to use Netflix should connect to their TVs devices that still support it.

"Although some of our older TVs will no longer support Netflix directly, beginning December 1st, 2019, many other devices you may have connected to your TV are still supported," the statement read.

"As long as you have one of the supported devices, like a game console, streaming media player, or set-top box, you'll still be able to watch Netflix on your TV."

Samsung has not yet specified which models of the smart TVs will be affected.

Password sharing

It comes after Netflix alluded to the possibility it would be cracking down on sharing passwords.

In an interview in which executives discussed the company's Q3 2019 Earnings, Chief Product Officer Greg Peters said Netflix was "monitoring" password sharing.

He quickly clarified that Netflix had made no alterations to its password sharing policy.
