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

Navigation
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, dramas, TV shows) that we show 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.

Resolution

Parental controls
You can set parental controls on individual profiles.

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.
