How can I watch Netflix on my TV?

There are many ways to watch Netflix on your TV - all you need is a device with the Netflix app! The Netflix app is available on many Smart TVs, game consoles, streaming media players, set-top boxes, and Blu-ray players. You can find more information about compatible devices and brands at, or read on to see if your TV is already Netflix-ready!

Does my TV have the Netflix app?

To find out if your TV has Netflix available, the first step is to check - you may even have a Netflix button on your remote! If you do not have a Netflix button, you can usually find the Netflix app with your other internet apps and services. If you need help finding the app, search our Help Center for "Using Netflix on," followed by the brand name of your TV. There, you'll find steps for locating the app under the Set up Netflix tab.

What if my TV doesn't have a Netflix app?

We work with manufacturers to make our app easy to find and use. For most TVs, the Netflix app will be visible from the main menu or home screen. If your TV has an app store where you can download new apps, try searching for Netflix to see if the app is available.

Sometimes a device update is needed to find and install the Netflix app. If you're not sure how to update the system software on your TV, you can check your owner's manual or contact the manufacturer. Please note that an update isn't guaranteed to include Netflix, but keeping your TV up to date will ensure you always have all available apps.

I'm trying Netflix for the first time, I'm not sure I want to buy a new device.

Check out to see if you have something at home you can use to watch Netflix on your TV.

I already have a TV that I like, do I have to get a new one to watch Netflix?

Not at all! If you aren't looking for a new TV, you still have plenty of options. Check out to see if you already have something that will let you watch Netflix on your TV.

If you don't already have a compatible device, streaming media players are widely available and let you access services like Netflix from any TV.
