Okay, this TV is not a Smart TV- so it does not have the capability to receive Netflix directly- without additional equipment. An external device- like the Amazon Firestick or a Roku would be needed. They can both be purchased at Best Buy for $40 each. You would then plug the device into the TV's HDMI port and run the setup on the screen to get Netflix.

TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 5 months ago

What help do you need? Your TV is not a Smart TV- you can't setup Netflix DIRECTLY on the TV. Did you read my reply?

TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 5 months ago

What you NEED IN ORDER TO GET NETFLIX on the TV- is a device like I mentioned above. You can purchase one of them at the link below if you want Netflix on this TV:

This TV is older- it has no built in APP platform and does not have a Netflix button on it's remote- so I am trying to help you get Netflix on it by providing a solution.

TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 5 months ago

The "TV/Video" button on your remote changes the Input.

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 5 months ago

Use that button and let me know if you can select the HDMI Input or if it's ghosted out.

When I hit hdmi 2 it goes nowhere
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 5 months ago

Is HDMI 2 "ghosted" out- meaning you can't click on it???

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I click on it and it says hdmi 2 but doesn’t go snywhere
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 5 months ago

On this set you need to "Label" inputs before you can use them. Let me pull up the manual for you.

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 5 months ago

Click the link below, scroll to page 35- and follow the instructions to LABEL HDMI 2 (simply give it a name of your choosing) and you should then be able to select it and use it.
