Hi, I just bought a 55’ JVC UHD LED smart tv, I have resubscribed to my netflix account last night I tried watching from my tv, but an error popped up saying that “Netflix needs google play services to work” should I just download google play in order for the app to work? I am able to watching videos on YouTube though.

The JVC TVs have a modified YouTube app, that's why it works. The JVC TV I have has Google play services but it can't be updated so it's outdated and certain apps ask for Google play services to be updated in order to operate.

Download aptoide onto the TV and search for Google play services and and see if it installs. Personally take the TV back and maybe get a sinotec or Hisense and get a Telkom Lit Box.yes sinotec TVs come with Android but you will also have similar problems

Download the play store APK from here and install it on your TV.

I have a 40" Sony Bravia TV (relatively old one) which does not support stuff as modern as Android TV so I bought a Xiaomi Mibox which is a good option if you want Netflix, DSTV Now, etc. but needs a WiFi network connection.
