Turn off the console, then back on. Re-install the Netflix app from under the Video Services icon. Activate and attempt to Sign back in.
If that doesn't do it, then you'll need to call NF and report your difficulties and see what they can suggest.
Yes, I accepted the last update as soon as it was available. Yesterday I followed your suggestions: I deleted the Netflix app and also deleted the file under Game Utility Data (I had erased the app several times before, during my previous troubleshooting but never noticed there was a file too!), then turned the PS3 off, then deactivated all my devices in the Netflix's "My Account" page (as suggested by mproper), turned the PS3 on, downloaded the Netflix app, downloaded the latest Netflix version, entered my account info, and after 5 minutes of the red loading screen I had Netflix working back again in my wired PS3... But again, just for once!!! Just to make sure it had been solved definitely, I logged off from Netflix, browsed a while through the XMB, then watched some downloaded videos from the PSN, then tried to go back to Netflix and all I got was the red loading screen... Permanently.
I think somehow the app got sticked with the wireless interface of my PS3, as it was the way I had it connected when I first installed and used Netflix in the console.
I am now considering the option of making a backcup of the hard drive, formatting the disc, and configure and install everything again, to see if it fixes the problem.
Has anyone used Netflix on your PS3 connected with the wireles network interface and then changed to the ethernet interface? Viceversa? Did Netflix worked after the change?
Any other suggestion would be welcome.
