Thanks

Do the following

  1. Click this link netflix.com/activate
  2. Log into your acct if necessary and click "Your acct & Help" on the upper right hand side of the page
  3. Scroll down the page until you reach the "Watching Instantly on your TV or computer" section and click the link for "Activate a Netflix ready device"
  4. On the device itself, navigate to the Netflix App (location will vary based upon model-please see your manual for specifics)
  5. After launching the app for the first time, you will be asked if you have a Netflix acct. When you answer "Yes", you will be given an authentication code that you will then need to enter on the page you should now be at on your computer.
  6. Click the "Activate" button after entering the code on the "Activate your Device" screen from your computer.

Let me know how you go please
