Netflix is currently returning an error during the linking process for some users. I have submitted a support request to Netflix to find out when a fix is expected. If you get a 404 error after clicking 'Activate' above, please try refreshing the browser to see if it goes through. If you still get the error, then please try back later.

I have sent another email to Netflix API support with additional information. I'm still awaiting a response.

Unfortunately, I still haven't received a response from Netflix, so I'm not sure what the status of a fix is on their end. In the meantime, the "lite" version of the channel
is available, and provides most of the non-account specific features, if you just want to browse the available titles.

I received a tweet from the lead API engineer at Netflix yesterday evening asking for more information, which both myself and another developer experiencing the same issue provided. We haven't received a response, yet, so I'm afraid it's still not clear what the status is, but they're definitely aware of it now.

I received another tweet from the lead API engineer at Netflix, saying that he's not sure if it'll be fixed this weekend, but they are looking into it.
Thank you for your patience, and I'm sorry for any inconvenience!
