Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this but I'll do my best to help you.

Hello Veda,

can you tell me which specific model tv you have?
Are any other apps working (youtube, amazon, hulu, etc)?
Are you streaming directly through a built in app on the tv, or via a function on the directv box?

Expert:  Nathan replied 11 months ago.


It is imperative that you reply back to me here, on your original question only, please.

Posting new/duplicate questions costs you more and hinders my ability to reply.

Please reply back here on this page when ready.

M43-C1,M49-C1,M50-C1,M65-C1, & M75-C1 - I do not know which one I have - but I would like to be able to watch Netflix?
Expert:  Nathan replied 11 months ago.

The model number is ***** on the tv, on a sticker on the back.

You will need to go into the tv settings menu, using the vizio remote, under network (wireless) and see if it shows as connected to the wifi.
If it is not, you'll need to reconnect. Once you do that, netflix should work again.

If you are trying to access netflix via your directv box though, that is a different process.

You have already paid the agreed upon fee (to the site, not to me).

I'm an independent tech spending my own personal time, without pay, trying to help you.

This was not intended to be a single answer, it is an ongoing conversation. You need to follow my instructions and report back on what you find, so I can guide you further if needed.

Do you need more help with this?

If so, simply reply back on this page.

Please note: You have already paid your fee to the site; I'd like to help you and provide value for that fee, but I do need to communicate with you here to do so.
