Because version 5.0 of Netflix's app relies more on Google's Widevine digital rights management to prevent piracy, the video streaming service has to make modified devices incompatible. In a statement Netflix confirmed that users with rooted phones may not even see the Netflix app show up in the Play Store.
The newest version of Netflix's Android app will not officially support rooted and unlocked Android devices, the company said recently. Others might root or unlock their devices for deleting some software that is built in the device.

The Netflix app can be downloaded from the Play Store only on phones that fully comply with the security requirement prescribed by Android. Now, majority will have to choose to keep their root access and watch things as they unfold. The company has confirmed that devices that are not "Google-certified or have been altered" are no longer capable of accessing the mobile service.

Smartphone users with the Android OS can run into trouble with the Netflix app disappearing from their Google Play Store. It can identify devices running or not running in the Trusted Execution Environment (TEE).
Users of rooted devices, though, will be familiar with sideloading APKs. If you've got the app installed already or sideloaded it on your rooted device via an APK file, it will work just fine. This also includes the devices that have an unlocked bootloader. But when you do so, you'll lose all improvements made by Netflix.
