Impossible to watch Netflix in HD on a Lenovo Smart Tab M10

2019-10-14, 17:32 PM

Hi all,

I recently acquired a Lenovo Smart Tab M10 in France. The tablet performs as expected, but Netflix shows only play in SD (not even 720p) - yet the Netflix app came pre-installed on the device! According to the Netflix app, the tablet is only Widevine L3 compliant. Is there any way to watch Netflix shows in HD on this tablet? This is really a huge letdown...

Hi All!

 

Welcome to the Community Forums! Glad to have you here.

 

Just joined here and just noticed this post, sorry for the delayed response.

 

I truly understand the need to watch Netflix shows in HD using your Smart Tab M10 devices. 

Upon checking through their site, these are the only list of Lenovo devices that supports HD:

 

  • Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro (YT3-X90F, YT3-X90L, YT3-X90X)

  • Lenovo Yoga Tab 3

Hope this clears up everything. Regards.

This is a huge disappointment. I only bought a tablet to bei able to watch Netflix. You  deliver a tab with full

hd support and preinstalled Netflix that only shows SD?

To be fair this one isnt on Lenovo, it was a decision made by Netflix. Or rather it was  forced on them by rightsholders who still live in the past believing that DRM is till effective against anything.

Yes Sir, this one is on Lenovo.

The tablet has Widevine level 1, but Netflix app says level 3.

This obviously is because the app is preinstalled as bloatware (before tablet gets updated on level1) and can't be re-installed by users.

I hope that lenovo is able to solve that problem. This is this only point which prevents me from getting the device.

Level 1 will still be enough (but the app hasn't got l1 while the device has, which could be resolved by reinstalling):

 

Your device will need to be certified to meet the full L1 specification if you want to stream HD content from services like Netflix. https://www.androidauthority.com/widevine-explained-821935/

Well this is part of the reason why i cancelled my netflix subscription(plus the outrageous practice of theirs on pc, serving me 720p just because i use linux but happily take my money for 1080p)....  No way in hell im going to replace my phone just because some delusional  company thinks DRM going to do any good for them.
