The Netflix app has had no problems at all though. I actually just ordered the Amazon Fire Stick 4K to use it just for Amazon Prime Video because of the issues I've had with the C8 internal app.
I may have a solution for you! This worked for me & the solution was a suggestion made to me by another forum member here.
I had a similar issue where the app would freeze & I thought it was the WebOS built-in apps. The only way I could fix the issue was to kill the power to the C8, then turn the power back on & I mean the unplug the cord, NOT the off-on switch. The suggestion was to turn off (un-check) the fast start up feature found in the setup menu of the C8. It only takes a few seconds more to boot-up the C8 but that's not a big deal. I haven't had an issue since doing so. So, try turning the Fast Start-up feature (might be called Quick Start-Up?).
