Roku, How To Setup a Roku Player

You want to try the Roku player so you can stream NetFlix to your TV over your home internet connection. It can be a bit of a hair pulling experience to set one up. So I'll try and make it as easy as it can be. First; Once you receive your player, and connect it to your TV. You need to get your new player on to your home network, be sure you have a router with wireless capability's. You will need to know the name of your home network, and you will need to know your WEB key or the pass key to secure your access into your home network. To do this, go to "Settings" (on the Roku menu) then scroll thru the menu until you see "Network", press network, look for your home network and press on it, then put in the WEB key to access your home network router. Remember after each step unplug the Roku for 10 to 20 seconds to set the memory.(may take more than 1 time with some players) NEXT; Go to www.Roku.com internet site and set up your account with them, they will need info on how to bill you if, you use a pay chanel. So they will need some bank account info, Or you can use PayPal. Next On the Roku "My Account" page, down at the right bottom of the page you will see the "Link Player" button, follow this to input your Link code, or go to http://owner.roku.com/link to input the code. Then go to the Roku menu screen and finish the setup with your Link Code. This will now activate your new Roku player. Next you will want to go to NetFlix and set up an account with them. Same thing here, they need bank account info to bill you, if you stay past the free demo time limit. Now go back to your TV, Roku menu and scroll thru the menu to press on NetFlix, here you will go thru the Menu to get another link code. This time it will come on the TV, Roku menu to go back and put that code in your NetFlix account to activate your Roku player with NetFlix. Now in the process of all this, you may have to unplug your Roku player after each link code to set it into memory. This causes a lot of folks to have some trouble as they do not, "Turn Off" the Roku after they put in the network key, the Roku link code, then again after they put in the NetFlix link code. One last bit of help. Do not create a large Instant Queue on your NetFlix account over 50. This causes problems with the memory usage in the Roku player, and It can keep NetFlix from loading. Hope this helps FixYa up.

What special equipment do I need to watch Netflix


All you need is a computer and a connection to the internet and you can watch it directly on Netflix.com. In addition you can download the free Netflix app onto your smart TV, game console, streaming player, phone or tablet.
If what you are really asking is how do you watch it on your digital TV (not smart TV) then you will need a wireless home network and a streaming internet player such as Amazon Stick, Roku or Chromecast. Your digital TV will need an HDMI input connection. Most players are also powered through a USB port so it would be helpful to have a USB port on the TV but it can be powered with a transformer at a normal AC plugin.
