    App store not downloading the right version of Netflix

    Well, I've recently made a clean install of W10 on my pc, and when I download the Netflix app, it downloads the W8 version (which I don't like), not the W10 one. I check for app updates, but there's nothing for Netflix. What can I do about it? Thanks in advance.

    I checked the store and only saw one version. It was for Windows 8 and up. Could the version you had have been a Beta version?

    Same is happening to me and according to this thread at reddit, it's happening to others too: Netflix UWP app doesn't install on my new computer!! : Windows10

    Seems to be a Netflix issue. I noticed earlier, with the UWP version, that the live tile didn't update any more, so I uninstalled it, reinstalled it and had the Win8 version all of a sudden.

    Have you checked with Netflix to see if they pulled the UWP version?
