If you don’t have a Smart Television though, you might be wondering how to watch Netflix on TV.

How do I get Netflix?

It’s as easy as signing up online. For a small monthly payment, you’ll get unlimited access to a variety of TV shows and movies. There is even a 30-day trial for you to try out.

Multiple Ways to Access Netflix on your TV

Technophobes rejoice! Despite how difficult it seems, there are several ways to access Netflix once you have purchased it. Better still, AV Everything are more than happy to help you set your home entertainment system up to include Netflix.

Smart TVs are Easy Peasy

When it comes to accessing Netflix on a brand new Smart TV, all the work is practically done for you. Most smart TVs come with a built in Netflix app, meaning Netflix is little more than a click away on the remote.
Alternatively, you may have to download Netflix using your Smart TV.

If you’ve just unboxed your smart TV, or wish to discover more about its capabilities, do not hesitate to contact us. We not only assist in setting up Netflix for you, but we can also ensure your smart TV is set up and ready for use. We’ll even demonstrate how to access Netflix.

Mobile Devices

Mobile devices, like iPads and Android tablets, can work as remotes for your TV. If you’re using an older style digital television, you’ll likely need your mobile device to operate Netflix. If you don’t have a Smart TV you will likely need an iPad or Android Tablet to access Netflix. This is relatively simple for Apple products but can be tricky for Android products like Samsung Galaxy Tabs. There’s a bug with some Samsungs that can stop you from seeing and using the media controller for Netflix. You’ll need an additional app like Chromecast to make it work.

Netflix through a Set Top Box

A set top box is used to convert digital TV broadcasts so they are watchable on analogue televisions. So if you wish to access Netflix and you don’t have a smart TV, this is the perfect option for you.

Companies like Optus and Telstra offer Netflix in bundle packages with other products, including set top boxes. Apple also has its own set top box, Apple TV.

Setting up set top boxes can be daunting for first timers. We’re more than happy to help with that! We can set up your set top box with Netflix and show you how to use it.

Gaming Consoles

In this ever developing technological world, you can even access Netflix on your gaming console. These include consoles such as the two current generations of Xbox and Playstation.

We’re here to help!

Netflix offers a world of opportunities, and we can help you discover this world. From setting up your set top box to automating all your remotes onto one singular device, we can help you do all the technical stuff. In the end, you reap all the rewards!
