Having the Netflix app on your phone or device is great because it means that you can take your favorite shows and movies anywhere you go. But viewing your entertainment on those small screens is not quite as enjoyable as getting the full experience by linking your television to your Netflix account and watching those shows and movies on your T.V. Here’s how you can link your television to your Netflix account.

Make sure that your T.V. is equipped with the Netflix app

  • Most Smart T.V.s come equipped with the Netflix app at the time of purchase.
  • If there is not a Netflix button on the remote control associated with your Smart T.V., check to see if the Netflix app is available. It should be found with the other internet applications that your Smart T.V. is equipped with.
  • If you need help finding the Netflix app on your Smart T.V., go to the help center on Netflix’s homepage. From there you will be able to enter the brand name of your television, and you will be given instructions for how to check if your T.V. has Netflix capability.
  • If you do not have a Smart T.V., other devices such as gaming consoles and Blu Ray players may also be Netflix capable. Visit devices.netflix.com to see if your device is compatible with Netflix.
  • In some cases, you will need to update the software on your Smart T.V. or compatible device.
  • If you do not have a compatible device or Netflix equipped Smart T.V., look into a streaming media player or consider purchasing a Netflix compatible device.

Log in to your Netflix account via your Smart T.V. or other compatible device

  • Select the Netflix app from your Smart T.V. or compatible device and follow the prompts to log in to your account.
  • Your account profile should appear on your television screen. Simply select the show or movie that you would like to watch just as you would from your computer, laptop or mobile device, and enjoy your favorite shows on your television’s screen.
  • Log out the same way that you would from your computer, laptop  or mobile device.
