\I wish to start up Netflix on my TV

Do you own a smart tv or a streaming device like a Ruko, a blu-ray player with streaming capabilities, or a xbox or other gaming console with streaming feature?... Also you need high speed internet with a downstream speed of 15Mbps or greater for streaming video in HD, an updated modem and a and very fast router running at least 300Mbps or greater. IMO. This works for me.

I have a Sony bluray with built-in WiFi and I show I have internet connection, but when I try to watch Netflix I get a message stating not connected and invalid information and data. Is there a step or...

Are you using wifi connection, or hard wire? If you are using wireless, there is a possibility that, while you can connect to the router, the router it's self is not connected to the internet. Please check if your router has internet access, then, if you are using wifi, I would suggest hard wiring directly to your isp's modem using a "cat5" or Ethernet wire. Less lag streaming movies, and while playing games. And wired connection will always be faster than wifi.
