No you do not need the Nintendo Wii to get or use the Netflix service. You can use a computer, tablet, smartphone, or most game consoles to purchase, use, or get the service.

How do I install a Netflix app????


The device you are installing Netflix on needs to be connected to the Internet in order for it to be "Netflix ready." Now that Netflix has discontinued its installation discs, each device must be installed differently.
The Netflix program can be found in the marketplace or shop for each device. Netflix can be found in the Xbox Video Marketplace (a Live GOLD membership is necessary), the PS3 "What's New" section, and the Wii's Wii Shop. You must select the Netflix option on your device and follow the instructions given.

Setting up wii for netflix


Netflix Instant is available for streaming on your Wii gaming console by early spring 2010. If you have a Netflix subscription you can watch movies and episodes easily on your TV through your Wii console. This article will detail the important things you will need to make sure that you can watch Netflix from the Wii.
Difficulty:Easy Instructions Things You'll Need

  • Netflix subscription
  • Nintendo Wii gaming console
  • Broadband internet
    • 1 Check you Netflix subscription. The minimum subscription plan to watch Netflix instantly is the unlimited 1 DVD at a time plan or otherwise the $8.99 plan. This plan allows to watch movies instantly with unlimited monthly hours.
    • 2 Check internet bandwidth on your broadband connection. According to Netflix the minimum bandwidth requirement is 1.5Mbps. Netflix recommends for watching movies instantly a 3.0Mbps connection. Check with your internet service provider to confirm that these download speeds.
    • 3 A wired connection to your Wii console. An ethernet connection to your Wii console would be preferable. Unfortunately the Wii console does not have an ethernet port but a USB port. A USB LAN Adapter can be found at most computer supply merchants or online from Wii or Amazon.com. The ethernet connection is an ethernet wire from your home LAN router connected to your USB LAN adapter. The USB LAN adapter is then connected to the USB port on the Wii console. This connection will be how Netflix provides the movie streaming feed to the Wii.
    • 4 Sign up at the Netflix website for the Streaming Disc. Netflix will send a specially programmed disc to setup the Wii for watching the movies. When the disc arrives Netflix will provide instructions on how to install onto the Wii gaming console.

Hook up my wii so that i can order and watch netflix on my tv


With the Wii you can only watch Netflix movies through the instant queue. In order to do this, you must request the Netflix CD for the Wii online and write down the code that is given to you when you do so. When the CD arrives, put it into the Wii (Make sure you have a working wireless connection to the Wii) and enter the code you wrote down. You should be good to watch any movies through the Netflix instant queue on your Wii. The Nintendo Wii cannot otherwise play DvDs. Anytime you want to use Netflix on your Wii, you must insert the Netflix CD for the Wii, so be sure to keep track of it! Let me know if you need anything else!
