Have you ever been able to view Netflix on this device before? What device are you trying to view Netflix on? If it is a tablet, i recommend restarting your tablet and trying Netflix again. If that doesn't work, try uninstalling and reinstalling Netflix. If you only see the green screen when trying to run Netflix, and no other app, it may be a problem with the app or with the Netflix website.
In order to use the Netflix app you must sign up for and continue to pay for the use of Netflix. The Netflix app for iOS or iPad is free, but in order to view movies on your iPad, you need to maintain a subscription. You need to create an account on the Netflix site. The login to Netflix will be your username ( email address) and password. Thus same username and password is used to log into the Netflix app on the iPad. The first month is free, then $8/month for streaming service or $10/month that includes mail DVD's The service is great on iPad and even better when being able to view the video from iPad to TV. I have an original iPad and I have to use the physical composite VGA cable to output the Netflix content to my iPad. No other wireless WiFi media boxes ( with the exception of the newer Apple TV box) will let you stream from your iPad wirelessly. Another note, the Netflix app for iOS doesn't have a complete listing of all of the content available to stream. You need to use mobile Safari on your iPad to access to actual Netflix site and pick or queue up movies to watch from the main site. The Netflix site on mobile Safari will redirect your viewing choices to be played on the Netflix app for iOS automatically. Also, if you want to have Netflix stream to your TV without an iPad, you'll need to purchase Wifi media player such as this made by Apple, Roku or Sony. These work to stream Netflix direct to your TV, however, like the iPad app for Netflix, the content accessed by these wireless streaming devices is also limited and requires you to still use the full Netflix website to access their complete viewable library.
Netflix is available as a native XBox 360 app, accessible from the Dashboard. It will need to be installed the first time you try to run it, but after that it runs like any other app. You do have to have the system updated to the latest Dashboard to use it, however. Look for it in the video marketplace. No PC is required to utilize the app on the XBox, although the system does have to be authorized to connect to your Netflix account
