The OnePlus TV is now receiving an update that will bring Netflix support among a host of other fixes for the India-only smart TV.

While we wait to see if OnePlus will bring their first non-smartphone hardware to other global markets, the addition of arguably the most popular streaming platform is a major deal. Netflix support was notably absent when the OnePlus TV was launched alongside the OnePlus 7T earlier this year.

[Update]: It appears that the update has been pulled after the original blog post has been removed from the OnePlus Forums. It’s not clear why this is the case but we’ve reached out to OnePlus for a comment to find out why this is the case and if the rollout will startup again soon.

OnePlus did confirm that the streaming service would eventually come to their first TV set shortly after launch but we were left in the dark as to when it would actually arrive. In a blog post over on the official OnePlus forums, OnePlus TV Sofware PM, Steven X. confirmed that this second OTA update was finally adding Netflix after months of waiting.

This OTA update will bump the OnePlus TV to V1.6.0T1911211115 and includes a number of other optimizations for the TV beyond just adding Netflix. You can see the full changelog below.

OnePlus TV V1.6.0T1911211115 system update changelog

  • Netflix on board!
  • Added setting for directly entering recent “Input Source” at startup
  • Optimized volume adjustment experience to increase or decrease audio volume more comfortable
  • Pressing volume up and down buttons together to mute the TV
  • Remote low battery and charging status notification on TV
  • Optimized PQ video pinkish issue

The update is set to have an incremental rollout, so those of you that are lucky enough to own the OnePlus TV, you may not see Netflix on your smart TV for a few days until the OTA file has fully rolled out.
