So, I try to play some other movie/episode with the same result. To fix this issue, I have to completely exit out of Netflix and launch it again. Then it's able to play all the movies I was unable to play earlier. Is this common for other users as well?

Like Smarty said, the Netflix servers are sometimes buggy due to heavy usage, or have a temporary failure of server hardware.
I just received my BDP-105D a couple of weeks ago and immediately downloaded the latest firmware.
I'm having the exact same issues with the Oppo Netflix App as Sam1000. However, I believe it is the Oppo 105, not Netflix!
Prior to the Oppo, I was using an Apple TV to access Netflix. I may have had an Apple TV/Netflix connection issue twice in three (3) years. Simply rebooting the Apple TV fixed those.
Moreover, the last couple of months -- before the 105's arrival -- because lightning damaged its Ethernet port, rather than using the Apple TV hardwired to the network, I was using its Wi-Fi connection with nary a Netflix hiccup!
Now with the Oppo hardwired to the network, if not every time, every other time I load Netflix, I'm getting the: "Netflix is unable to play this movie at this time" error. It’s more than coincidental that the Apple TV even via Wi-Fi, works seamlessly and consistently; whereas, the Oppo doesn't! Proves to me that the Oppo is at fault, not Netflix!
Although as OmarF stated it's not a big deal, it is frustrating for a unit as advanced as the BDP-105 is, to choke when trying to connect with Netflix! I hope Oppo corrects the issue with the next firmware upgrade.
