Update: And it's back!
Original story: Netflix is no longer available on the Windows Store, for both PC and mobile owners. It comes at a time when subscribers to the service have been frustrated with the lack of updates to address reported issues. We're not entirely sure what's going on at Netflix HQ, but it gives us no pleasure to confirm that their official offering has indeed been pulled from the store.
Interestingly, we last looked at the Netflix app when it received an update earlier this month to add a new color to the Windows Phone 8.1 Live Tile and apply some fixes. It could be that a serious issue was discovered but we'll have to hold out and see. For now, best not to delete it if you do have it.
Thanks Jason F. for the tip!
