The main reason I wanted to stream Netflix to TV was to save money. I was paying for cable every single month and not watching most of the channels in my Digital Preferred contract with 300+ channels. The other reason was to be able to watch free movies online and TV shows of my choosing and without commercials.
How to stream Netflix to TV?
- You need to sign up for Netflix at https://signup.netflix.com/ and you can start with a 30 day free trial. After the free trial, the monthly fee is $8.54 a month and there is no contract, you get charged on a monthly basis and you can cancel at any time. After signing up, you will be able to stream Netflix to TV.
You need a wireless Router to transmit the signal to your TV. If you don’t have already, you can buy these in Amazon for about $30.00 – $40.00. The one I use is the NETGEAR Wireless Router – N300 (WNR2000).
Once you have your Netflix account and the router, you will need a streaming video player and the one I use is the Roku streaming player I have had very good movie streaming with this device.
Using the Roku player you can select various channels besides Netflix like, Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus, Crackle free movies Pandora audio streaming, Flixter movies, Roku Newscaster with newscasts from Fox, NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, Disney, Showtime, Weather4us among many, many others and if you have a facebook account, you can see it on your TV as well via the Roku Box.
After you have completed these steps. You are ready to stream Netflix to TV.
