If the error still persists then you need to visit your browser settings and check if there is any pending firmware update available for your browser.

Fix 3: Try Using A Different Browser

If you are already using the latest version of your browser but the error is still coming then try using a different Browser.

Using Netflix over a different Browser will tell you whether this is a browser-related issue or there is something wrong with Netflix.

Note: If in case the chrome browser does not show the Widevine Content Decryption Module option then you need to download the latest version of Chrome.
