How do I connect Netflix from my computer to my tv

how do I connect Netflix from my computer to my tv

Hello, You usually don't connect Netflix to your TV form a computer. You usually do it using a built in App (if the TV supports it) or by purchasing an external streaming box that does. Please postback with the MODEL NUMBER off of the back of your Samsung so I can look and see what this TV supports.

If your TV is not a Smart TV ,then you will need to purchase a streaming box or stick like an Amazon Firestick, or Roku to connect to the TV's HDMI port and then you can view Netflix using the built in app on the streaming device.

If you need further assistance let me know. PLEASE DO click at least a 3 STAR RATING, at the top of the page for my efforts. That is how the site credits me for my work.

  1. Press the Smart Hub button.
  2. Select Netflix.
  3. Select Sign In.​
    • If you do not see Sign In, select Yes on the Are you a member of Netflix? screen.
    • If you are not yet a member, set up your membership.
  4. Enter your Netflix email address and password.
  5. Select Sign In.

If you wish to start over and/or sign in with a different email address at any point during this process, enter the following sequence using the arrow keys on your controller:

  • Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, Up, Up, Up, Up
  • Select Sign Out, Start Over, or Deactivate.

on my tv it says - device may not be connected to the Internet
Expert:  Aric replied 5 months ago.

Have you setup the TV to the internet?

Expert:  Aric replied 5 months ago.

You never posted any details about the TV- what the model was, if it's brand new, what you've tried so far, etc. So it's hard to give you specific instructions unless you can reply back with some of this?
