Update: My Netflix finally did let me sign in and seems to be working and Vudu let me sign in, but will not stream – has been giving a time out error message when I couldn’t sign in. I have pretty fast cable internet. My other smart device pegs out with the speed test on Vudu. So, dunno what’s up, but at least there is improvement.
Everything else continues to stream very well; Youtube, Vimeo, etc. I was apprehensive that the Samsung that I took back couldn’t be matched for how slick the interface was, but the function of the Panny is actually better in terms of interface and the apps they provide at least for Vimeo and Youtube seem superior in layout/implementation to any of the few previous devices that I’ve used.
