Netflix is one way you can watch movies while at home. Instead of paying for cable movie stations, you can pay a flat fee to have movies delivered to your door. The more common way to use Netflix is by streaming the service to your TV or computer to watch movies without waiting for the discs. This can be done in a variety of ways, as long as you have Internet access.
Purchase the Netflix service that best fits your needs. You can purchase limited instant streaming movies per month, unlimited streaming movies as well as plans that include DVDs in the mail.
Plug your video game counsel (Xbox 360, Playstation 3 or Wii) into the television with the provided cords. If you are using Playstation 3 or Wii, you will need to request a disc from Netflix to stream movies to your TV. This disc is free of charge. You will also need the corresponding online service for your video game counsel. Sign in to your Internet account through the system and access Netflix through the video market screen. Scroll through the instant selections and click the title that you wish to view. Select "Play" and the video will appear on your television.
Use a VGA cable to plug your desktop tower or laptop into your television. Use your mouse and keyboard to visit Netflix.com to choose a movie on your television. Browse or search for a movie and click "View Instantly." Click "Play" and the movie or TV show will play through your TV.
Tips & Warnings
- Netflix provides the option to create an online queue that sets your instant movies and TV shows in an order that you wish to watch them. Instead of searching through the choices every time, you can access your desired movies through the saved instant queue.
