      Hi Pagi,

      We can offer some basic advice, which may help. You could try a simple restart of your iPad Pro to see if it’s just a memory issue, or explicitly quitting the Netflix app by double tapping the home button and swiping up on the Netflix app that comes up in the cascading tile of apps that appears. Check that you’ve also updated the app, as an older version of the app may not be compatible. Also may be worth checking the speed of your Internet connection to ensure that you meet the minimum speed quality required.
