Flex: Netflix app keeps crashing and requires Flex to be restarted

I got the Flex 4K Streaming Device this week, and I'm impressed.  It's actually pretty awesome.

 

But, the Netflix app is buggy.  Sometimes it won't launch properly, either going to a black screen or giving an error.  Other times, it will launch but will crash within an hour.  When that happens and I try to restart the app, it'll either go to black screen or an error message.

 

In any of those cases, restarting the Flex will allow the Netflix app to launch properly again.  Restarting just the Netflix App from the Help menu does NOT resolve the issue.  It must be the Flex that is restarted.

 

I also use the YouTube and Prime apps, which haven't had any problems like this.  I can launch those right after Netflix gives an error, and they work fine.

 

This is really annoying, to the point I might go back to streaming on the PS3.  What's the fix?
