Netflix is available on select Dish receivers, listed below. Netflix streaming features on supported devices include:

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 such as comedies, dramas, or TV shows that we show you based on what you’ve watched.

Resolution
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 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. Many devices let you choose the appearance of subtitles and captions. Some devices display subtitles and captions in their default appearance, or aren't set up to display subtitles.

Silent Sign-In
Some Dish receivers support Silent Sign-In (SSI), a technology that enables automatic sign-in. Netflix customers who are billed through Dish will automatically be signed in to their Netflix account on their new, additional, or replacement Dish set-top box if that box is SSI-enabled.

Note for satellite users
If you are being billed for Dish satellite service, Netflix will count toward your monthly broadband quota.
