Yes. I've had Netflix streaming freeze on a few programs, usually after watching several episodes in sequence. The first couple of times I could get past the freeze by stopping and then resuming, but then it seemed to become both more frequent and then more difficult to overcome, so I gave up. The next evening I was able to watch that episode from beginning to end without problem.
I didn't know whether it was a Netflix problem or a Samsung problem, so I'm glad to hear that Samsung is working on fixing it.
I also had one Netflix Blu-Ray disc freeze in several places, so I reported it to Neteflix and obtained a replacement. the second disc also froze, but less frequently and in different places then the first one. Since this was an animated film that was targeted at children, I presume that discs are more likely to be mistreated. I won't fault the 4600 unless and until I find other problems in this area.
I've had my 4600 about 6 months at this point and am generally pleased with it. As others have commented here, I don't see any point in subscribing to Blockbuster, but I do use and like both Netflix and Pandora and would be delighted to have Hulu added.
My one big disappointment is that DLNA does not work over a wireless network bridge.
