Netflix is available on many Sony devices, including Sony Android TVs and Sony Google TVs.

Supported Regions
Netflix is available worldwide, and most devices will work wherever Netflix is available, though some older devices will only work in the country where they were purchased. See our Supported Region Map for details. If you are considering purchasing a new device, check with the manufacturer to see if it supports Netflix in your region.

Older devices may ask you to go to to set up your device. These devices only support Netflix in the United States and Canada.

On most devices, Netflix lets you browse through rows of TV shows and movies, including a row dedicated to your My List selections. Each row represents a category (Comedies, Dramas, TV shows, etc) that we present to you based on what you’ve watched.

Older devices may not have rows of categories, but do allow you to scroll through My List, which you can create using the Netflix website.

Most devices are capable of streaming Netflix in high definition on fast internet connections and will play Netflix in their maximum supported resolution (see our internet connection speed recommendations for more information).

Parental Controls
Netflix allows you to set parental controls on individual profiles.

Subtitles & Alternate Audio
Learn how to enable subtitles, closed captions, and alternate audio (including 5.1 surround sound), which are available on many TV shows and movies. To check if your device supports 5.1 audio, go to any Netflix Original to see if there is a 5.1 audio option. If not, your device does not support this feature. Many devices will let you customize the appearance of subtitles and captions. Devices that do not support customization will display subtitles and captions in their default appearance or are not configured to display subtitles.

On some devices, you can also stream select titles with Dolby Atmos audio, including the models below. For more information on Dolby Atmos, visit our article about using Dolby Atmos on Netflix.

Picture Adjustments
