Netflix is an excellent service that lets you watch TV shows and movies on demand. But how can you watch Netflix on your TV? Well, it’s pretty simple! This post will demonstrate how to start watching Netflix on the big screen using an Xbox One S streaming device or an Amazon Fire TV Stick (or any other device with Chromecast built-in).
Step 1 – Sign up for a Netflix account
- Sign up for a Netflix account.
- Create a new Netflix account. If you already have an existing account, log in and sign out.
- Log in to your newly created Netflix account.
Step 2 – Play an older Netflix movie on your PC or Mac.
With a Netflix subscription, you can stream movies and TV series on your PC or Mac’s web browser.
- You’ll need a Netflix app installed on your phone or tablet (Android/iOS) to work with these devices’ streaming features. If you don’t have one, check out our installation guide here: [https://help.netflix.com/en/node/23939].
- Some smart TVs also support Netflix as an alternate way of watching videos from the Internet. Check out our guide for more information about these types of devices: [https://devices.netflix.com/en/].
Step 3 – Locate the Netflix app for your device.
To locate the Netflix app for your device, you’ll need to follow these steps:
- Find the search bar in the upper right corner of your screen. It can be on any device (smart TVs, streaming devices, and gaming consoles).
- Type “Netflix” into it and then press enter/return key on the keyboard. For example: “Netflix” or “Netflix.” Or press enter/return key and then join one of those two strings into the search bar at the top right side of the screen.
- Once you’ve entered “Netflix” into the search bar in the top right corner of the screen, tap on it. Next, choose “All Categories” from the drop-down menu, which will display all the categories that fall under this one, including Movies & TV Shows, etc. We’ve now selected our primary category and subcategories like TV series.
Step 4 – Watch movies and shows on the big screen with a streaming device.
Now that you have Netflix installed on your computer and mobile device, it’s time to connect them. The first step is to connect your laptop or tablet directly to the TV. You can do this with an HDMI cable (which should already be included in the box).
Suppose you don’t have an HDMI cable. There are alternative methods of syncing your devices in that instance.
- Some support Wi-Fi streaming of content from their storage rather than relying on a cloud connection.
- In contrast, others call for a wired connection between the two devices utilizing power connections or USB ports.
Once both devices are connected, ensure they’re turned on before proceeding!
You can watch Netflix on your TV.
Netflix is available on many devices, including:
- TVs with a Netflix app
- Streaming devices (such as Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV Stick, Roku, etc.)
