This model does not have the netflix streaming feature. The televisions that have that feature have an ethernet port on them that you would connect to a phone jack that has DSL or a cable modem, whichever one your internet service comes through. On this tv you would need to attach a Roku or another one of the devcies listed here.

As far as the "L" on the end of the model number sometimes the factories or the television manufacturers make adjustments to the tvs after they have been released, which could be something cosmetic or something internal. The model number remains the same but an N, a T, or an L or etc. is added to the model number to denote that this modification has been made.

You need a good internet connection (basically anything except dial up modem).

You can watch it on your latop - just log into netfilx and pick a movie that is offered as 'watch instantly'.

You laptop probably has a S video out so if you have a S video cable and a S video input on your tv - connect it to have video.

You can buy an adapter that will allow you to connect the headphone jack on your laptop to the tv. This will give you sound (turn the volume almost all the way upon the laptop - then control listening level with tv sound level).
