    You might wait for OTA update to fix the issue. Else the last option is to visit the service center. I know it's pretty annoying but that's how it is. Many users have been facing these issues. For 50% of users, the play store trick is working. Rest are still facing it. I would also suggest you submit feedback via the community app along with screenshots of the same.
    1) Go to the home page
    2) Tap on the bottom right corner +icon
    3) Tap Feedback
    4) Select the category of issues you are facing
    5) Explain the issues and submit
    6) After that log kit would start capturing logs.
    7) Reproduce the steps by which the bugs occur.
    8) Go to status bar notification and tap on log kit notification and stop it after the issues are recorded.

    I live in Pakistan and there is no OP service center here. Will rolling back to Android 10 fix the issue?

    I think it should fix the issue. This bug is completely random. If you are rolling back, I would suggest you to first try flashing stock rom of oxygen OS 11 using msm tool. If L1 isn't restored, you could rollback to OOS 10 and get L1 back.

    Go to apps clear cookies and caches for Netflix and prime as well as for phone data services.

    Then check for updates on playstore. Update if there is any update available. If not then restart phone and check.

    From last update( Widevine security level has dropped to L3. Now can't even watch anything in HD or HDR. Tried everything as suggested by many users who faced this issue still no luck.In Netflix help center device list which shows device that can play video in HD & HDR Oneplus 8 series phone is missing! When will these issue get resolved? Paid 50k for a phone and now stuck with these issues.

    Title says it all...

    Model HD1900
    Oxygen OS 10.0.16HD65AA

    Google Play Store app updated OK
    All apps from Google Play Store are updated including Netflix!!!!

    Yet, Widevine is at L3 when it is supposed to be L1.

    Any way... Chat with chat support (few minutes) said next software will fix this. Some how I doubt this will be fixed in the next software release - which should be Oxygen OS 11 STABLE.

    However, I could be assuming incorrectly and may be OOS 11 does fix this???????? May be someone can let me know please?

    If not fixed then this is my first and last OnePlus... Back to Samsung.

    On a side note, please refrain from threatening to go to Samsung or whichever.

    This is community forum, not many people care where you heading to but that will trigger fanboy(ssssssss) into rage.

    Hope the above help to solve. Also you may want to use the search function for 'widewine'. Believed there are plenty of discussion, some may contain solution that help specific user but not all. Really need to dig a little and test it out yourself.

    Best of luck.

    Thanks for everyone's efforts here... Looks like it's my UNLOCKED bootloader that's got me at Widevine L3 with no fix other than to RELOCK my bootloader. So it's either LOCKED BOOTLOADER or ROOT. Not cool....
