Things I have tried:
Clearing Browsing Data (Browsing History, Download History, Cookies & other site data, Site Settings, Hosted app data)
Turning Brave Shield off
Complete Uninstall/reinstall of Brave.
Updating Widevine Content Decryption Module - Version: 4.10.1440.18 (No update needed)

I think this is actually a Netflix issue – but I assume you were signed out during the un/reinstall. Did you also delete the data in the ~/AppData/Local/BraveSoftware directory?

I had tried deleting that folder and letting it populate again before uninstalling and it didnt work. When I uninstalled I went through and cleaned everything out before reinstalling it.

It’s odd though that it works on the same Chrome version. It used to work before but suddenly stopped working ~1-2 weeks ago.
