Update Your Browser

I addressed this issue by updating the browser. The browser then would have problems while streaming, causing error codes like s7701-1003. So, if you have been using an old browser version, you have a reason to update it. To update:

  • Open the menu option in your browser.
  • After opening it, select the help option on the menu.

  • This will show you the version of the browser and whether an update is required or not.
  • Then, relaunch the browser to update it and check whether it is fixed.

Enable Cookies In Your Browser

According to my testing, I concluded that disabling cookies can cause this problem. To be safe and ensure that your cookie settings are not part of the problems caused by the error, try allowing cookies in your system. To do so:

  • Hit up the menu in the browser.
  • Then select the options panel > privacy and security > history section.
  • Then click Allow cookies, thus enabling cookies on your platform.
  • Then again, wind up everything, relaunch the browser, and relaunch Netflix to see if the error has been removed.

Enable DRM Support

DRM (Digital Rights Management) is a tool that governs whether the content being accessed by users is according to their terms or not. So, in my findings, it’s likely that this is causing you trouble, so you can enable it to see yourself if the error code vanishes. To enable it, try doing the following steps:

  • Open the menu and select Options > Digital Rights Console Management > Play DRM-controlled content option.
  • And again, relaunch the browser and open the app to see if the trick worked.

Update Your Browser Content Protection Feature

In my findings, the outed browser content protection feature might be another reason for the error. It tends to cause a lot of problems. Aside from the error fix, it is best to keep such features of your browser active for the best experience. To do so:

  • Hit on the menu and select Addons.
  • Scroll to the Plugins tab and find the Wide Vine Content Decryption Module.
  • If you find it, click the Find Updates option.
  • You will determine whether your Wide Vine Content Decryption Module is updated. If not, then update it yourself.
  •  Now, relaunch and open the browser to see if the trick worked.

Check Your Browser Compatibility

Furthermore, it is also possible that your browser is incompatible with Netflix, and you are unaware of it. So, another cause of the error is the compatibility issue. Netflix does not work on custom versions of browsers and supports an official version. So, I suggest you ensure you are using a supported version. You can check out the latest version of your browser in the About settings section of your browser.
