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

Supported regions

Netflix is available worldwide. Most devices will work wherever Netflix is available, but some older devices will only work in the country where they were purchased. If you're considering buying 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, you can browse through rows of TV shows and movies, including a row dedicated to your My List selections. Each row represents a category (for example, comedies or dramas) 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 can stream Netflix in high definition on fast internet connections and will play Netflix in their maximum supported resolution.

Parental controls

You can set parental controls on individual Netflix profiles.

Subtitles & alternate audio

Learn how to turn on subtitles, closed captions, and alternate audio (including 5.1 surround sound), which are available on many TV shows and movies. To check if 5.1 audio works on your device, go to any Netflix original to see if there is a 5.1 audio option. If not, this feature doesn't work on your device. You can customize the appearance of subtitles and captions on many devices. Devices that don't support customization will show subtitles and captions in their default appearance.

On some devices, you can also stream select titles with Dolby Atmos audio, including the models below.
