Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.
Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.
What is the model of your directv boxes?
Thank you. Directv is not currently supporting a netflix app directly on their boxes.
You can certainly use the services it does offer, including some on demand movies, but netflix is not one of them.
For your existing smart tvs, they should have netflix, but do require a wifi connection. You'll need to purchase and install a wifi router. Example: http://amzn.to/29MsVQW
For the non smart tvs, you can connect an external device to them to make them a smart tv, such as a roku, fire tv, or smart bluray player, which would use wifi as well.
Typically changing from dish to direct should not affect your internet connection though, if you have high speed internet already you just need wifi connected to that to share with your wireless devices.
