Why do Netflix movies keep stopping?

It could possibly be a slow internet connection speed. Netflix posted requirements. This is a good site to check your speed. Internet Connection Speed Recommendations Below are the Internet download speed recommendations per stream for playing movies and TV shows through Netflix.
  • 0.5 Megabits per second - Required broadband connection speed
  • 1.5 Megabits per second - Recommended broadband connection speed
  • 3.0 Megabits per second - Recommended for SD quality
  • 5.0 Megabits per second - Recommended for HD quality
  • 25 Megabits per second - Recommended for Ultra HD quality

Movies and TV shows we have available in high definition will play in 720p or better with a fast enough internet connection. To watch Netflix in HD, ensure you have a HD plan, then set your video quality setting to High in the Playback Settings for your account.
Netflix Bandwidth Usage
Higher quality video uses more bandwidth than lower-quality video. If your service provider applies a bandwidth or data cap to your Internet service, you canManage Bandwidth Usage by changing the video quality settings to Low or Medium to consume less data.

Netflix error 1810

Try clearing data on browser, each are different so try googling steps to clean or clear data, if this does not work

Silverlight installed to play netflix on computers & laptops might be the problem.
The Silverlight plugin, which Netflix uses to play movies and TV shows on your computer.
This error is usually caused by one of three things:
  • A computer setting preventing Silverlight from storing files it needs to play your movie or TV show
  • An issue with the Silverlight plugin itself
  • An issue with the content you're trying to play.
  • Try re-installing uninstalling then reinstalling silverlight.
Hope it works for you, best of luck.

On my Samsung smart tv Netflix movies stop all the time. We have to login all over!

This could be many things. Are you using an Ethernet cable from the router to TV or is it wireless??? Im guessing wireless right??
The router is either too slow or too far away from your Tv. Try moving your wireless router to a location closer to your Tv. If that isn't possible, you could buy a faster router. I'm not sure what router you have, so google it and see if it's outdated. Some of the newer routers are much faster than the old ones and will stream Netflix perfectly.

Also check with Samsung (online) to see if there is a firmware update for your model of TV. The firmware is the software that runs the "smart" portion of your tv. If it's outdated it could cause bugs like lagging Netflix.

Good Luck!!!
